Those same freedoms apply to religious people as well. The religious organizations have been successful in getting people to make aliyah from N. America. They also continue to raise generations who have strong ties to Israel. It certainly isn't the liberal minded jews who are becoming agnostics and atheists who are keeping ties and supporting Israel. "suffering under the yoke of rabbis" is a bit melodramatic Yonatan. Let me put it this way, there is no reason for a Torah Jew to feel out of place in Israel. If Israel is to become a country where a Torah Jew has to fight for his rights, why do Jews need Israel? We have that in the Galut. As for Rabbis being in politics, should a doctor, lawyer, general, labour leader be in politics? The electorate decides.
