Religion and Divine Dispatches
In Israel, everything seems to be political. Or historical. Or religious.
Jerusalem is the most important location for Jews and Christians and one of the most importants for Muslims.
But it’s not only about the monotheist religions themselves – there are much more questions and even clashes inside the different religious movements.
Almost every fifth Israeli Jew is orthodox – but this is also not a homogeneous group, there are subgroups like the Hasidic Jews, the Modern Orthodox Jews or the members of the Heradic Judaism.
Nothing exposes religion more to the reproach of its enemies than the worldliness and half-heartedness of the professors of it.
(Matthew Henry, Presbyterian commentator of the bible, 1804)
