    unfortunately, such situation is due to your system itself. your coutnry is not secular, nor is it religious. hence, they have the legitimacy to request such thing as no dominant system seems to exist. i am not criticizing , we have a similar situation but we decided to compromise alittle. it is a question of respect among each other. it does not work with extremists ofcourse. with everybody else, it works more than fine. isn't there a way to satisfy them. it is just one day a week after all. the same way people who are not believers or observant during ramadan at home make an effort as all our life organisation change drastically during that period but most people love it. don't you think it would be nice trying to discuss it with them and maybe find a way to accomodate them.. i understand you can perceive it as a nuisance if you don;t care about that but isn't a society about living all together? quite honestly, i am not a fan of your nation for political reasons but a question comes to mind. in which country do you expect them to be able to fully observe their rites if not in Israel? where can they go for that? no judgment here, everyone has their opinions and i am not really concerned as such but just wondering if a solution could be found without alienating your own compatriots because of their beliefs.
