Scary Divisions in Israeli Society

I was very hesitant to post this article. Normally, I try not to post articles that emphasize the divisions. Ultimately, we need to be together, as one people, unified, in order to save Israel.

But a freind urged me to post this. It was after, all published on Ha'aretz, a very left leaning newspaper in Israel. And it is true, after all. But it's very disturbing. Judge for yourself.

Is Israel being torn apart? Does the protest campaign of the disengagement opponents signal a deep internal rift? Has the process of dividing the land become a challenge to Israeli sovereignty? Rabbi Yaakov Meidan is not one of the extremist rabbis of Yesha (acronym for Judea, Samaria and Gaza). On the contrary, over the years he has been engaged in attempts at dialogue with the secular public.....

Rabbi Meidan, how difficult is this moment? It is beyond terrible. Beyond terrible. Understand: we are being judged as the ruined city, of which it is said that it shall not be rebuilt. We are being judged as a camp of lepers.
