Israel has dedicated itself to being a Jewish and democratic state. How can it commit itself to being democratic when its officials arrest women for wearing a tallit at the Western Wall? What has happened to Israel? What happened to humanism playing a role in Israel's secular identity, with freedom of religion within the frameworks of an ethnically Jewish state? The ultra-Orthodox's politicians's exertion of force over Israel's government is ridiculously evident here, even though they represent nothing but their egotistical fascist ideas for Israeli theocracy, not even the desires of their own electorate. It's time Israel takes a stand for itself and and asserts its identity as a free, humanist, plurastic Jewish state.
