Its a mighty scary thought though.
Only the religious, and one with a very deeply mystical/emotional awareness of G-d can achieve that level of trust and faith in G-d. This is why it is
so important for Israelis to become more religious (which has been happening) or in the case of the Haredim, growing in population numbers to
eventually take control of the country. I see this scenario no more then 10 years away. By that time, the religious would have taken control of the
state founded by irreligious secular Jews; a suprising turn around im sure, and the secular will either emigrate; or in a worst case scenario, fight
the new government.
This is what i see happening to Israel. This is why Israel is currently systematically killing Rabbis (a vast majority of whom have died in car
crashes in the last few years; it is known that a common way to kill someone without getting in trouble is so mess with their brakes, or some other
part that results in a car accident) and persecuting religious Jews. I just hope there isnt a civil war between their ascendance and eventual take
over of Israel government.
Also, and i happen to take an interest in this, Israel will undergo a constitional makeover. It wont go straight (atleast i think it would be wise not
to) into a theocratic government. I think Muslims and Christians will be accorded rights, (more then either have given the Jews) but Israel will
identify itself more as the Jewish
state, and will regard Judaism as the nations religion. In this scenario Israel will resemble more of what
Herzl initially intended; a state connected to its religious and historical foundations (something the weizman, Labor crowd excized from the Israeli
spirit. Eliad is an example of it) then what Rabbi Meir Kahane intended; which is a full blown theocratic state.
Even though Kahane might infact be justified, on a religious basis (in terms of Rabbinic thought), the world would probably regard such a dramatic
change in Israels government as a negative, and will then start a propaganda campaign of misrepresenting what this means; palestinians will be further
victimized, and Jews transformed into modern nazis (an irony im sure all nihilists/satirists would enjoy).
