Your description of the Israeli society is wrong. On shabbat, the synagogues are full. And 15% of the society is ultra-orthodox (far away from those who only visit the synagogue from time to time). 75% of the population said that they would try to mourn Tisha B'Av... So let's not make false Lashon hara on the Jews. if we don't protect our brothers, who will? Also, the only thing reform does is teach how to be impolite atheists and Jewish antisemites (just observe American and Israeli-leftist Jews). Rav Amar is no Ayatollah, he is the person we should all seek to be.
