    'And what about you? Have you ever said even one good word about religious people on these boards?' I truly have nothing against religious people,infact I am sure there are many legitimate religious people.I have a problem with fundamentalism.I have a problem with fundamentalism that is hidden (and also the type thats not hidden) because at its extreme it is the antithesis of real religion.And on a basic level of religion,I read Steinsaltz's Teshuvah and he says (and this was only the gist of it)at the beginning of the book that people think religious people are bad but there are just as many bad people in the religious community as out (Maybe he didnt say bad people maybe it was referring to bad things that they do or something)I just thought,that there was something drastically wrong with that. I also feel that there are so many rituals that the religious have to perform and so many mitzvahs that certain things get lost and sometimes they are the most important. In the frame of reference of the situation with israel and the Palestinians,the extreme on both sides are the main blocks to peace. I dont know how many religious people would give up Samaria for peace but I did ask the question and still would like to ask the question.
