    enough already trying to defend those who went back on their word. this subject is divisive and those who try to justify the status quo can quote statistics and fashion arguments until the cows come home; in polite society, agreements are meant to be kept.

      It’s not the Orthodox parties who went back on their word. At some point the idea that the American liberal movements should officially be in charge of the new place was added in, and that would lead to their ability to change Jewish standards in Israel to match their own (which are, let’s be honest, non-existent).

      Furthermore, the “agreement” was obtained via lies and coercion. Surely you do not believe such tactics should be legitimized by demanding the results stand when the falsehoods are unmasked.

        i believe both natan sharansky and the learned members of beit hillel. and btw, liberal jewish movements have standards that change, perhaps too quickly; in reality, many standards change, even traditional ones.

    I beg to differ – this has nothing to do with Jealousy. As always, since Mattan Torah, this is an attempt to alter the D’var Hashem. These elements know darn well that in Eretz Yisroel they’ve had little success and are not deserving of more space at the Kosel. They also know that as long as Jews adhere to the totality of Torah, including Torah She’b’Al Peh, they cannot be seen as legitimate.
