Why should the charedi definition of conversion standards take precedence in Israel over the equally source-based stance of Religious Zionist rabbis? The author is correct that the difference between the two is that the charedi didn't buy into the Zionist enterprise, and therefore when faced with two opinions, does not see the functioning of Israeli society as a motivation to take one position over the other. Instead of being stringent to the demands of the halakhot of running a society, they are stringent to the demands we place on the individual.
