Congratulations to you Axel. No Israeli citizen is demanded to sympathize, be loyal or be a follower either of the Synagogue or of the country's political class. I am against Israel asking for recognition of the obvious and even of the not so obvious. I'd much rather Israel concentrated on legally defining its borders in collaboration with the Palestinians and its neighboring countries. I As a descendant of someone who fought in your country's army during WWI and got you know what for his pains the next time around take it from me that I know what I am talking about.
