It's a wonder they are surprised

Israel youthIsraeli media are beating their collective chest over the recent Dahaf poll of Israeli Jewish youngsters. Surprisingly (to the journalists), 70% of the youth prefer security to democracy. Indeed, just 14% think that democracy is important, and 66% support right-wing parties.

On the other hand, only 33% support Israel as a Jewish state.

The picture is clear: decades of anti-religious brainwashing have made Israeli youth jingoistic. They value strength for the sake of it rather than as a means to maintain a Jewish state.
