This is what happens when Israeli governments cave in to the wishes of a tiny minority when they try and form a government. Catering to Shas and the other religious parties has not only sapped Israel of its identity but insured that incompetent people will be running the government ministries. These parties have blackmailed both Labor and Likud for far too long and the best thing that can happen to Israel is for Labor, Kadima, and the Likud to form a coalition and governing majority and tell the small religious parties that blackmailing the State will no longer work.
