Israel’s political left wing wants to adapt the ‘light unto the Nations’ bit from Tanach to conform with the prevailing stated aspirations of Western civilization – the great social causes of equality, affirmative action in matters of employment, housing, etc., and civil rights. These great principles championed by
I had, in my past, several Jewish bosses, all recipients of Ph.D.’s, all university professors, and all above it all. All were the grandchildren of Yiddish speaking emigrants from
Throw it out; replace it with something of worth, like the US Constitution. And the US Constitution is worthy in the extreme, but not in the Jewish State of Israel as a replacement for Torah, and not as a device that is used to spare self doubters from the facts and needs of their lives, and not as an excuse to subjugate the Jewish Homeland into a state of capitulation to the Jew haters.

On what is the liberal Israeli political opinion based? Certainly not on equality (equality under law). The Arabs will have none of that where Jews are concerned. Got Dhimmi?
The entire argument for the establishment of the Jewish State of Israel is Torah – HaShem’s revelatory commandments. The entire argument posited by the ‘liberals’ – the anti-religious – is a negation of Torah – Mordechai Kaplan’s Judaism as Civilization, ‘know-better Judaism’, Humanistic Judaism, the ‘Judaism’ of embarrassed Jews. These are the Jews who have succumbed to the propaganda of the Jew hating world and who want to prove their detractors wrong by showing the Jew haters that we can do it too – Nobel Prizes and more published scientific papers per capita than anyone else - and that we too are a loving and compassionate people, like Christians, and we can prove it – we’ll sacrifice ourselves and our State for the benefit of others. Please don’t hurt us – we want to comply!
