Actually, there are several "types" of religious people in Israel, there are the Orthodox ones, which usually wear black (we call them "Hardeim"), these guys for the most part don't go to the army, and most of them don't work.. The "Sewen Yammukas", these guys are the guys that usually live in the settlements, they go to the army, they work and contribute, and there are also the reform guys, which just take Judaism in a bit more of a modern approach.
Far be it from me to decide which way is the right way - I wasn't raised religious, and I was told by my grandfather about a year before he died that god gave us free will, and I should always learn as much as I can about something before making a decision about it, and NEVER do what the Rabbi says without thinking myself first. He was a smart man...
I wrote in the past - "No one can hate Jews like other Jews"... it is a fascinating thing to watch objectively (if it didn't make me want to throw something at these people), there are so many examples... It does merit more study (by professionals).... and don't get me started about Ms. Aloni... her political party was almost completely erased in the last elections... the common conception in Israel is that the media and courts that are largely controlled by the "left", give these people a louder voice then they actually have...
“Whats going on in Israel with this "peace treaty" is a slow but effective method to break Israel down. First it will call for a palestinian state, and then it will arrange a way to break Israel down further, whether that be through instigating war or spreading propaganda”
Another question is: what happens to the Jews if they succeed?
According to PLO officials those who were there before the mass Jewish immigration in the late 19th, early 20th century will be allowed to stay, but will have to follow Palestinian Law, which of course is a veil for saying Shar'ia law, which relegates Jews to second class citizens with absolutely no human rights....as Ayotollah Khomeni said, "Human rights is a western concept. It doesnt exist in Islam".. It doesnt exist because Islam is a religion of obligations, and not rights.

First, that was CBN, not Ynet.
You really dont care at all what the facts are... you basically look for any weakness ie; source quoted, or a possible mistranslation...anything that can be used by you to delegitimize the basic facts.
Let me guess, it was translated by zionists?
heres an islamic souce, which finds nothing wrong with islamic law being instituted in Gaza (but of course for the political vipers out there, reality needs to be denied)
Source: YNet news
And BTW, your CBN article WAS sourced from Ynet.. Maybe read your articles in future.
Keep in mind that Israel is the only democratic nation in the Middleeast. If you want information about secretive regimes like Hamas, it will only come from an Israeli source, mainly due to its need to know what the Hamas regime, and the PA are saying, and doing.

Well, if your definition of "democratic elections" includes throwing the opposition of the roof tops
Might not be a bad idea in some countries
