Thanks for your comment. Were you ever on a kibbutz 'in the early days if the State'? People lived modestly, the standard of living was low. People worked hard and produced. But your point and mine are not the issue. I checked, this is 2013. The society is, in 2013, divided into 3 sectors, each pulling in a different direction. Each thinking that the State of Israel should be something else. Let's leave who is right for the moment and ponder on a comment by Abe Lincoln. " A house divided against itself cannot stand". We have become a house divided. We are in real danger.
