Even though I often disagree with the Israeli right wing (and sometimes agree), I believe, that the national religious camp deserves much respect. These are sanest people in Israel, not crazy fanatics, as some of their opponents try to represent them. They are educated, hard working, in their schools the education is better, than in secular schools and the value of education among them is higher, than among hedonistic Tel Avivans; they have strong families, they are not as cynical as us, secular people and their life is not rush for more and more pleasures, but service to God, it is full of sense. And also, there are many very nice and warm people among them. They are the salt of the land and even if one is not agree with them, it would be wrong just to reject them outright, as some loonies. Specially if we take into consideration, that in many cases they were right and not us.
