The foundation of the United Kingdom is set in Paganism. Christianity became the dominant religion but in 1670 with the restoration there became a seperation of church and state. Religion has a guiding hand within British Society but it is not the deal maker that it is in Israel. Where the Religious far right have the reins of power, totally out of proportion with the number of religious nutters in Israel. Gideon Levy is correct, Israel although not been a theocracy in the Iranian sense is certainly a semi theocracy with the superficial trapping of a western democracy.
