    This bizzare arrangement is certainly not good for just any other country which has no foundations of religious significance. Israel is unique among all the nations, obviously with holy turf as well as history. You cannot separate the two. If one is a non-practicing Jew, these issues are irrelevant. If you are a jew of action then you know our existence is based on a contract which has lasted for thousands of years and is equally relevant today. We are doomed if we try to copy-cat the other nations. For your information, if you want to push aside your own particular bias, Israelis, by and large do accept the G-d/ People/Land connection and have a keen respect unfortunately conform jews lost or never had. Many of the secular sephardi Israelis many not observe all mitzvot, but they have diehard commitments to our heritage and will never have anything to do with the conform song and dance shows. they know truth! Step within the lions boundaries and expect to hear irrational loud roars- it insures survival. The same holds true for our historic people. Conform Jews have been declawed, and defanged and will never survive as a Jew in the world's jungle. True Torah education can make you a king of the jungle once more.
