    The dangerous silence of decent religious Zionists


    Because Klein wrote about the religious Zionist movement as constituting such a threat, all that remains to do is to clarify what this religious Zionism is, and what the dangers are within it.

    As a result, there is no single definition today that describes all the religious Zionists who describe themselves as religious Zionists.

    There are oxymorons like Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked; nonreligious religious Zionists; and closed-off ultra-Orthodox figures like Rabbi Zvi Tau and the "Party-line" yeshivas.

    There are religious Zionist gays, as well as homophobes like Rabbi Yigal Levinstein.

    Almost every one of these voices has a movement, group, community, minyan, institute or study circle, and 13,000 people are members of the Facebook group "I'm a religious feminist woman, and I also have a sense of humor."

    The religious Zionism of today is the microcosm of Israel's identity crisis and split personality.

    The main problem is the masses of decent people, present and former members of religious Zionism, who know better and yet remain apathetic.
