    Yes, some aspects of Israeli democracy are under attack. But Rachlevsky has confused some teachings of the Zohar with normal Rabbinical Judaism. Rachlevsky writes that nearly 53% of first graders learn in religious or ultra-religious schools. Those in religious schools do not learn the theology Rachlevsky says they learn. Most ultra-religious schools do not teach this either. Despite Rachlevsky's assertion to the contrary, it really is a fringe group that believes all this. The argument against Rotem and his ilk is strong and convincing enough. It need not rely on demonization of them and their allies. Ed Codish Pardessiya
