I believe in the separation of church and state very strongly. This is why I oppose the notion of ISLAMIC republic of Iran or ISLAMIC CEMAHIRIYA (public) of Libya or ISLAMIC republic of Pakistan. Israel on the other hand is not called Jewish republic of Israel. It is just Israel and despite some efforts by the fringe extremists it is still a secular democratic country where the Moslem Arabs are fairly elected to the Knesset, unlike Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria etc.
