What about the positives? I think you will find that many Jews and Zionists were, like myself, once immensely proud of Israel - its absorption of millions of immigrants, its economic and cultural developments, its victories in necessary wars of survival etc. Why is our pride turning to shame? Because we want an Israel that truly wants a 2-state settlement, is secular in nature, ensures that all its citizens enjoy equal rights and recognition and where the religious are allowed to live as they see fit but are most definitely not able to impose their ideas on the rest of us. The Israel of today seems to be heading very much in the opposite direction.
