'I accept that the comments that Ken Livingstone has made make it more difficult for Londoners of Jewish faith to feel that the Labour Party is a place for them,' says mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan.03:33 02.05.16 | 0 comments
The secular majority in Israel has allowed an ultra-orthodox minority to take control over much of the nation. The ultra-orthodox are not to blame; they have an agenda which they are following. It is secular Israelis who, for incomprehensible reasons, have allowed this band of fanatics to dominate them. The ultra-orthodox contribute little or nothing to society, yet we yield to them in all their demands. Why, for instance, have we changed our clocks two months ahead of everyone else? So that the precious ultra-orthodox can get dressed in the light? And, yet, we continue to criticize religeous extremism in neighboring arab states. Outrageous!
