    I have heard so many people in the US say how we would be better off with a parliamentary system. You are the second person in a week, in different contexts, criticizing parliamentary systems. The other person is from India and blames apathy of the young in India on the parliamentary system that allows so many minor parties to have a say. I have never really thought of it that way.

    What a vast majority of people in and out of Israel would love to see is the religious groups in Israel losing power. I am thrilled their exclusion from serving in the military is being lifted. Most Israelis I know detest the religious Jewish communities as parasites. In that sense you are absolutely right: the parliamentary system allows the religious right in Israel way too much power. Is the loss of their exclusion from military service a sign that their grip is loosening? Will that help I wonder?
