Discussion about Israel’s lack of unity
Opinion from the Internet about Israel’s unity measured through the army and kibbutzim:
Simply saying. We really couldn’t care much for your uneducated criticism anti-Semitism and anti Isrseli opinion. We did and overcome, resurected from the ashes of the holocaust, the Arabs enemies who raised to wipe us out. With so called, unbonded IDF, and the top quality commanders from the Kibbutzim which those days were the cream of crops of our reborned resurected nation.
We managed though, to build a country from scratch. That is in spite of the fact that we gathered from 70 different countries. We are aware of the differences and discrepancies in our new sociaty, it takes times to reunite us totally. So far we are very proud of our achievements, regardless of the facts that we are a collective of different cultures, but Judaism is our super glue material which targeted our DNA to rebuild our Jewish Zionist state.
Just tough luck. Go and grow bananas in alaska.
We created our dreams with our hands and sacrificeded 27,000 of our best sons and daughters to achieve independence from 5 Arabs invaders in 1948, we defeated these armies again and again. Last front massive war when we are attacked on two fronts, in October 1973, both armies of Syria and Egypt were pushed almost to their capital to be capitulation on their knees and begged the Russians to a cease fire.
This so called unbonded army in your ignorant term with it’s soldeirs who gathered from 70 different countries, and many commanders sons of the unbonded kibutzim lost 2,500 soldeirs.
Probably I didn’t express myself properly.
I am Jewish, I am extremely proud of what Israel has achieved in such a short time and I am working on making aliyah as we speak.
I didn’t say that the IDF is unbonded, I said that the bond achieved in the army disappears after the army service is over, as the youth - some of them leaving for overseas for years of permanently - settles into a society that is fragmented at the seams.
Historically we are held together by the external hatred from others while we fiercely fight amongst ourselves and endanger our own existence.
I don’t know if your read true historic accounts about how the Nation defeated, decimated itself before the Romans actually invaded and destroyed Jerusalem. And looking at the present Israeli society from the dysfunctional, self-serving government, political parties and different parts of society hatefully protesting while others ignoring any instructions to care for the well-being of others, there is a danger that we can repeat what happened more than 2000 years ago.
Due to the lack of unity, constantly undermining each other Israel might have wasted 4 years of the most favourable American President to secure its borders and create sustainable peace as a Democrat administration will probably turn the clock back to where we were 4 years ago.
All of Israel’s past and present achievements can crumble if we don’t establish the original unity and mutual responsibility - without waiting for the external hate, pressure to increase (it is already increasing against Jews worldwide!)
And then we haven’t even started to talk about our historic role towards others, showing how to unite above differences, live in mutual guarantee despite mutual distrust, hatred.
Especially in a time where our previous lifestyle is collapsing with all the non-essential, excessive industry, consumption disappearing, the weekend doesn’t need our startups, Nobel prices, they need to know how to survive through mutual responsibility and connections above and despite everything that separates people.
This is what Israel needs to show, and we have to show it now in the extremely fragile, volatile state the world is in! And it is specifically so because we are from all “70 nations” because we are not a Nation like any other, but we become a Nation only when we revive, secure and constantly strengthen our unity against all odds! That is the true constitution of Israel.
