Yisrael Harel is one of the founders of Moetzet Yesha and has been one of the leaders of the settlement movement for decades. What he writes here is so painfully obvious that I regret that it even needs to be said. We can live, albeit wounded and vulnerable, without Netzarim; we can't live for long without an army.

The only line I disagree with is his claim that the problem with Kachniks is their failure to agree that the State represents the beginning of the redemption. It might or might not be, but the insistence of certain people -- like Harel -- that they know that it is, is part of the problem not part of the solution.

Perhaps bringing back the pure idealistic religous zionists from their outposts in gaza and into mainstream israeli society will have a postive benefit and help bridge the divide

I seem to recall that Rav Amitakl called the rioters at Yamit, 'Satmar.'

Cut out the heart and use a heart and lung machine. Just the same. Dialysis instead of kidneys? Come on!
