    Enlightened one, maskilim like Zack are always quetching how horrible the orthodox are. Let him, there is no way to win this argument. The point of R Amar is that as Jews in Israel move to become the numerical majority of all Jews - this is already the case for the Sphardim, the rabbinical decisions made in eretz isroel obtain a super duper precedent status. That was always so, including the time of the recording of Talmud. We are a democratic and There are so many junk comments in the discussion so far. Some go so far to proclaim a literal reading of the Torah is always true, and does not require Torah she be al pe. In fact nothing is further from the truth. For example, the famous "an eye for an eye" is as we know means full monetary compensation, not taking out the perpetrators eye in addition to that of the victim. And the now universally accepted truth that a Jew is someone whose mother is Jewish is based on the exact unwinding of the rather complex meaning of Dewarim 7:4.
