    I am sad by the news of such division, for a divided house will not stand. I thought we were all Jews. If these people do not recognize Israel as a nation, then why are they living in Israel? Should they not find homes somewhere else? Do they work? He who does not work, should not eat. As far as I am aware G-d only said that the tribe of the Levites were not to go to war, or have land, and only to work to serve Him. If the Haredim are not from the tribe of the Levites than they should have to serve in the IDF, they should also find jobs to support their families. If they don't want to comply with the laws of Israel, than they should move to another nation. A group of people should not become a burden to those that work to build a nation. All these different religious groups in Israel should not discriminate against each other, for we are all from the same family. I recently was in Israel and stayed at the Kinair Classic Hotel, managed by Orthodox Jews. It was a very unpleasant atmosphere. Where is the hospitality to the stranger in the land? How can someone say that he obeys G-d's commandments and not show it by his actions? Being religious means nothing if a person does not apply what is being taught to their daily living. Loving G-d and your neighbor as yourself is the greatest commandment of all. Religion does not take anyone to heaven or before G-d, but a loving heart full of mercy, compassion, love, justice, and good deeds will.
