The disease of social hatred

Israel has been contaminated by the European disease of social hatred in a way that is more pronounced than anything that transpires in America. We have been met in Israel in the space of several months with more blind prejudice and with more of what in Europe would amount to class hatred than we ever experienced in a lifetime of quite open and explicit Jewish identity in the United States. 
Israel needs some sort of national ideological mechanism that would work to eradicate this European disease. The biblical regime is sensitive to these problems in a way that a secular political system is not, which is why secular Israel is missing the boat on this score.
