Unity, Achus in Hebrew, is a key strength, perhaps the key strength.
There is no greater concern over the current situation in Israel, in particular the moves of the government, than the damage to achdus (unity).
A government making the kind of drastic decisions it is making has a responsibility to lead the people, direct the nation to it's line of thinking. Not bully the people and demonize the segment that disagree's.
The people are truly in turmoil and internal disagreement with each other, and this has worked it's way down into day to day interactions.
It's a bad situation. Regardless of the result or whether you agree or disagree with the direction, serious harm to the Israeli national psyche is occurring.
