"Nowhere else are Jews trying to impose their religious creeds on each other;" Jews have always tried to impose their religious creeds on each other Mr. Strenger. For obvious reasons, persuasion and ostracism were the only tools available in the diaspora. In fact take away the religious qualifier and just say creeds. Remember the young Jewish communists and bundists who would stand outside synagogues eating ham sandwiches on Yom Kippur? Religion is a creed, Zionism is a creed. The glue that sticks Jews to each other is religion. The glue that sticks Jews to the land of Israel is religion. Zionism was the glue that, along with rejection from both sides, succeeded in stick the non-religious to Judaism. There's no fast-forwarding to secularism in Israel until Israel has decided where it wants to go. Will it be oppression or concession?
