It may be a bit too generous to conclude that the motives of Liad et al. are not antireligious.
Don’t underestimate the ability of secular nitwits (Israeli or American) to devise a harebrained scheme under the guise of “progressive” thought to undermine religious observance.
If the Green Hanukia morons had any intellectual honesty, they would have been advocating for Israelis to cut down on CO2 emissions by observing the Jewish Sabbath and not driving on Saturday. Just think, 52 days out of the year with zero auto emissions. The reduction in CO2 would be many magnitudes greater than from abstaining from lighting one lousy candle.
I’m an advocate of environmental conservation, but I’m also religiously observant and not a moron and therefore I can see through the bogus logic of these secularists.
Not driving on Shabbos gives Jews the opportunity to observe a religious mandate of inestimable importance while at the same time reducing pollution. Simple.]]>
