    The issue of settlements is one of national security and national identity. the big question is whether being a Jewish state requires more than the Law of Return, Jewish holidays as national holidays, shabat as the day of rest, investment in archaeological efforts to reveal Jewish history, investment in all streams of Jewish thought, philosophy and theology as areas of study and research, standing with Diaspora Jews in distress, an accommodating army for orthodox soldiers (without compromising the rights and dignity of our female soldiers), kosher food in public governmental institutions, the development of new Jewish art, literature, theater, film etc. Jews can live in good neighborly relations with non-Jewish citizens in mixed neighborhoods without in any way minimizing our Jewish content. We can give minorities equal resources and demand equal obligations without compromising our heritage. This whole debate is not between a Jewish Democratic state but rather can a Jewish fascist state be democratic. Enough with the lies.
