Declaring that Israel is disintegrating, the author argues that the fundamental cause of the disintegration is "a normless or irrational conception of democracy that clashes with Judaism and renders it impossible for Israel to achieve the national unity required for survival in a hostile Arab-Islamic environment." Recognizing the fundamental tension between conceptions of Israel as a democratic state versus a Jewish state, he opts for moving in the direction of the latter, rejecting such democratic concepts as a state made up of citizens, pluralistic government that listens to the voices of the Arab or the secular Jew, and other such dangers to the Jewish state. Only when Israel is based solely on the religious laws of Judaism, he argues, can it effectively deal with the populations around it that are destined to remain hostile and ruled by dictatorships.
