I was recently listening to a Podcast of Hakira Negdit, the legal radio program from Galei Zahal, and one interesting topic came up.
It was basically about the attitudes of younger Israelis (15-20 or something) towards Israeli Arabs, democracy, etc. and the claim was being made that those children who had gone through the Religious (Zionist) school system did not consider democratic values to be particularly important, and viewed Judaism as an alternative to democracy rather than something which can coexist with it.
We've had a similar discussion before, on what it means to be a "Jewish and democratic state." That discussion, however, presupposed that Judaism and democracy are actually reconcilable. We've had the argument put to us by Kahane and co. in the past that the two are incompatible, but that was an argument made from a Zionist perspective ("would you allow the Jewish state to be voted out of existence?") rather than a religious one ("can Rabbinic authority and the precepts of the Torah be reconciled with a liberal democratic system of government?").
