    Landau thinks it's merely a matter of nonOrthiodox Jews objectinjg to Orthodox Judaism as a state religion. It goes much deeper than that. It's an objection to religious and nationalist bigotry of all sorts. Orthodox Jews do not own the Wall, it belongs to all Jews and you can't say the same thing about the Vatican or St. Paul's cathedral. And the State of Israel belongs to all peiople who are citizens without being subject to Orthodox tests. Jews who think it's ok to drive on Yom Kippur ought not to have to deal with a barrage of rocks from Haradi thugs. Arab citizens of Israel are riight to seek equal protection of the laws and should not be told that their children should not register in Jewish kindergartens or that they cannot live in a Jewish neighborhood. Arabs in the West Bank should not be told that they can live there in an area that Israel is infomrally annexing but they can't vote. Anat is saying no to all religious and nationalist bigotry, and we say no along with her. If the religious nationalist bigots think that we are being naive, or self hating or whatever their excuse du jour for religious nationalist bigotry, we are saying no to that as well. If they think we are not being supportive of Israel, they should understand that we think precisely the same of them.
