News and views on Israel, Zionism and the war on terrorism.

February 21, 2003

Some good news:

It looks like MAFDAL and SHINUI have been able to reach understanding on several issues, including military service for yeshiva students, civil marriages, and subsidies for large families. Historically, MAFDAL has been the most progressive religious party in Israel. The party was led for many years by Yosef Burg (father of Avraham Burg, member of the Labor party), who was one of the most admirable figures in Israeli public life.

Hopefully, this will signify the beginning of new understanding between the moderates on both sides. (IBA radio)
