    Jews. Sub-types: orthodox Jews, ultra-orthodox Jews, nationalist-orthodox Jews. (There are secular Jews, traditional jews, conservative Jews, reform Jews... etc, etc, etc). You lump the three types, orthodox, ultra-orthodox and nationalist-orthodox together. These folks with the black hats, the long peyot, the kaftans (robes) are NOT the ones who live in settlements or in hilltop trailers. They are not nationalist-orthodox, they don't have the settler-mentality. They have a medieval mentality, and live within the green line, in Jerusalem, in Bnai Brak, in Bet Shemesh, etc. They live in the neighborhoods of Mea Shearim, Geula, Givat Shaul, etc. They aren't settlers, nor do they share ideology, expanisveness, land maximalism or any Zionist ideology. They are to the most part non-Zionists who parasite from the Israeli economy and political system. They see themselves as the guardians of Torah, and study Talmud day and night. Now they have demographically reached a critical mass that seems to be propelling their fanaticism towards the outside world, in terms of demands of segregation between men and women. It's a big problem to deal with them, and my view on it is in posts 14 and 17. Peres, Netanyahu and Barak have nothing to do with them, haven't "nurtured" them, nor have they colonized any part of the West Bank. They are trying to colonize Israel's soul with their 17th Century mindset.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin, February 16, 2016.

If Merkel also criticizes Israel, life is not a piece of cremeschnitte

The Israeli reaction to Der Spiegel's report on the German chancellor's frustration with Netanyahu was ridiculous, even Orwellian; as if Israelis were aliens who had just landed from another planet.
