Israel has forgotten the ideals of its founders and early Zionists. Those people believed in secular Israel that is a democracy, enjoys freedom of religion living peacefully with its neighbors. The religious Zionist who is controlling Israel today has complete different vision and mission. It is based on Messianic and biblical entitlements to the entire land of Israel as described in the bible without taking reality and pragmatism into consideration. The chosen people, the people of the book, have turned into the people of the nukes and the sword, neither is serving Israels original visions and heading it toward the edge of the cliff.
