Gideon Levy's argument is based on at least two fallacies. He states that,"first and foremost " ademocracy needs to guarantee the rights of a minority. Perhaps Levy never heard of the inicorporation in the American Constitution of the prevention of the tryanny of the minority- something that, had we had it, would prevent the Haredim from from exercising their power out of their numerical proportion. Secondly Israel was created as a Jewish state and declaring loyalty to that is no different from an American candidate for citizenship having to declare an oath to the U.S. Levy's handwringing is not appropriate.
