Modern Orthodox... that's a new one for me! I must say that it sounds very good, the man has ideas for how to get the Haredim to do military service and make life easier in general for those immigrants who either are not Jewish or cannot prove their ancestry. He would be an invaluable ally to Netanyahu in forming his coalition government!

Interesting. Question: is this guy trying to somehow water down Judaism as has been done to Christianity here, or is he just trying to bring the orthodox and non-orthodox Jews together?

It is great to see love and truth shine. A new bottle for new wine. We are indeed tin end times.

I’m unclear how the Modern Orthodox group differs from the Mizrachi/Religious Zionists. Rav Kook himself was very warm to the non-religious. Maybe just Yahoo News pushing ‘reform’ like they do on the Catholic Church?

It should be pointed out that a lot of haredim are non-Zionist and are ambivalent about the secular State of Israel. They see themselves as living in the Land of Israel and would attempt do so even if there were no measure of Jewish sovereignty over the land.
