When Reuven merely mentions the idea of Palestine becoming a secular Jewish state, Reb Saunders is ready to throw him out of the house and, as Danny indicates, Reb comes very close to doing just that. The conflict over Palestine once again highlights the importance of lines of conflict within the Jewish community.
