    my gosh...this isn't how it really is in Israel! If it were, then whomever is protesting needs to keep themselves busy with work! If there are really that many people that angry with each other, wouldn't it be smart and get together and talk about it like civilized people would? Maybe an understanding about something. Last time I looked, Israel was a democracy...a funny kind of democracy because it is under a 100 million party system, but nevertheless is some sort of funky democracy. So the majority won something and every other minority has a reprasentative for their community give or take. And if there is a good chunk of religious zionists out there why shouldn't the state do the things that it does for those people? Oh well..I guess a new political party is needed in Israel..just to add to the 100 million which exists. It's a monkey wrench in the system. Perhaps the people of Israel need to organize themselves and form fewer political parties and for special interest things..rather than form a brand new political party, create some sort of lobby... Bottom line is this: Despite the different opinions which exists between Jews and Israelis, we cannot backstab one another, we have to communicate we have to understand one another accept one's opinion or way of worship as you would want the opposite person to accept yours. You can engage in intelligent conversations and agree to disagree and have heated debate..but throwing rocks and eggs and use harsh negativism and attempt to strip away at one's dignity is really wrong...I konw that the Judaism I follow is totally against that..and i'm sure it's the same with the majority of Jews...
