    Orthodox jews were not a significant part of the forces that fought to create and preserve Israel. The initial greatness of the country was due in large part to its intellectual secular European leaders. That is not to say they were not observant jew. It is to say that they did not let Rebbe Shmulik or Rebbe Shimsham or whoever make their decision. They drew inspiration, not precise direction, from their Jewishness. Now the orthodox fanatics are outbreeding the "secular" jews. Immigration draws in these people disproportionately, while emigration is more likely to happen with the seculars. Inevitably, the bible thumpers will dominate the country politically. As people like #3 Bob depart for greener pastures we can look forward to a bankrupt nation which is unwilling and unable to defend itself, and which soon enough will not exist at all. I wonder what the true believers' last thought will be as the Muslim hordes descend upon them....
