Today the majority of Orthodox Zionists in Israel are caught up in a warped version of Judaism, originally promoted by that latter-day Nathan of Gaza, Tzvi Yehudah Kook, that sanctifies land, power and Jewish exclusivism.
You noticed, I'm sure, the gentle, considerate method of presenting his opinion.
a. What exactly are Orthodox Zionists?
b. What exactly does "warped" mean? Can left-wing views be described as warped, too?
c. "Nathan of Gaza" was Shabbtai Tzvi's promoter. Who was/is Rav Tzi Kook promoting?
d. Is that really "exclusivism" that is being sanctified?
e. How does the Israeli Left differ from what Gorenberg criticizes when it comes, for example, to peace with the Pals.?
And from the Knesset committee meeting held on the Sternhell bombing, more examples of Left-wing thought patterns:-
MK Zehava Gal-On said that it was not enough to merely condemn the attack, which she said was "the result of the establishment, which is scared of the settlers, collectively closing its eyes."
She said the settler community had representatives in positions of power who legitimized violence and hooliganism, adding that, whoever allowed attacks on Palestinians and soldiers to happen also allowed attacks on intellectuals.
MK Dov Henin (Hadash) said, "There is no doubt that there is a connection between the occupation and all the trouble and sickness it creates, and what is happening in Israeli society."
Again, the collective accusation.
