What is being said here by many is basically, seperate the politics and the religion. People are people whether they are the big shots or the ordinary
9 to 5's. We are just not ready for that yet. Look what happened, and what is happening when the state or companies try to minimise its role in
religion, in France banning the Burqa in the street, BA, banning the wearing of a cross for their employees, secularists saying it is all wrong and
people should wear what they like, feminists agreeing with the ban, saying that it is a symbol or religious suppression against women, and Burqa
wearers who want to wear one as a symbol of their faith and so on. Then by the same expressions, devout jews should not have locks, Yarmulkes or
tzitzits, (some fun looking for the last item) This then is basically what is being asked when we all generalise, like here and Israel and elsewhere.
Israeli people need to be defended just like any other country, you might not like their governments agenda, or possible hidden agenda, but most
ordinary people, as one poster already said just want to get on with their lives. It's always high profile minorities, who do have agendas...their
own, of any kind who mess things up, because governments spend too much time listening to them, and end up in a complete shambles.
