    I'm actually talking about the rising ultra-orthodox Jews, whom the secular and orthodox Jews are becoming more and more afraid of. Don't get me wrong, I'm not equating the level of both sides' violence and hate, because that's impossible if you know some basic facts. I'm merely opining that the extremists on either side use many of the same tactics and ideology. I've been fearing for a long while that Israel will become a nation oppressing its people as prolifically as Iran or Saudi Arabia are doing now, but in the name of Judaism instead of something else. The demographic trends of far-right extremism in what's supposed to be a secular nation are truly scary, and that's what I wanted to convey mostly.
