Yehuda Ben-Meir is a product of the Religious Zionist movement which started out alright in advocating a Jewish return to Eretz Israel and building a Jewish state. Somehow, this morphed into a bizarre worship of the state apparatus. The most extreme example was when the state carried out its anti-democratic pogrom in Gush Katif and many of the victims went out and hugged the soldiers and policement that were carrying out the crime. Ben-Meir expresses this bizarre distortion of religious Zionism into saying that it is "destructive" to criticize state officials too much. State officials are SERVANTS of the people and if they mess up like they did during last year's disastrous Lebanon war, then they must accept responsibility. IT IS THE PEOPLE WHO ARE THE RULERS-NOT THE Olmert/Peretz/Halutz/Supreme Court clique!
