After just spending 4 months in Israel - 35 years since my last visit - I agree that the greatest threat to the sustainability of the state is the increase in religious nationalism. Separately, religious zeal and nationalist intolerance are at odds with a modern progressive state; but when combined they become an increasing destructive and corrosive force. Unless another direction is followed I fear that in time the state will collapse from within.
