The majority of the Jewish population in Israel has not been raised in the democratic tradition. First of all, one million Russians grew up in a Soviet dictatorship, and had no democratic values to pass on to their children. Secondly, over half the remaining Jewish population are first- or second-generation immigrants from Arab and Muslim countries, all medieval monarchies or dictatorships without the faintest inkling of what democracy is all about. Much of the remainder of the Jewish population is Orthodox Jewish to this or that degree, and Orthodox Judaism by definition, cannot be truly democratic, no more than Islamism can be democratic. And as for the rest? Either swept along or helpless or both.
