    Israel has far less chance of surviving as a homeland for Jews then diaspora Jews have of living in safety elsewhere. What do you think the future holds for Israel? Eventually it will have to face up to the ramifications of its illegal occupation, the world will demand that it does and even a bankrupt and failing United States will be unable to save it. Either it comes to its senses before it is too late and reaches a just and viable resolution or it will eventually be subsumed into a single bi-national state with a Palestinian majority. Or worse. It will come under constant and intensive missile attacks and no part of the country will be safe. Yes, Israel will always have enemies but the occupation is loading the dice even more against Israel. Add to this the problems that Israel faces from its own people and you end up with a toxic mixture. Tell me how Israel will survive economically and militarily if it continues to hand control of the country to the ultra-orthodox and uses a disproportionate amount of resources to nurture people from grave to cradle to simply study Torah. Will they be able to meet the country's economic and military needs when those Jews - the real wealth creators - are no longer prepared to live in such an environment? ? No, just look at the number of Israelis who have already chosen to live and work abroad. Keep moving the country towards the religious equivalent of Iran - and it is the haredim who are the fastest growing sector of the Israeli Jewish population - and you are simply creating another destructive force. Why - because of the massive inbalance between what they take from and what they contribute towards the country's economy. It is not rocket science!
