    Israelis worry too much re image and P.R. - how about reality and practice? How is it possible that only 3 people are detained (and for how long?) out of 300 attacking the police? Time to wake up and see what else is happening. Ultra-orthodox are moving into Command positions in the IDF and police?, yet you call for soldiers to obey their commanders. When they wink, even when attacked, what are you doing to protest? It's time to get over the idea that "people more informed and wiser than I..." are making decisions for good reasons. The Far Right anti-democratic forces are ORGANISED - Isn't it time that the secular moderates and left-of-center people organize and become active? Or you will lose the State you hold dear. Its character has already changed under your nose.
