    If I want to be part of the peoples of Israel, I fully accept it's constitution its basic order: The Torah Israel is meant to be a Jewish state. If I want to become an Israeli citizen, I must accept the this order. Either I am already Jewish or I do the Gijur. I am asking, what happens, if citizens openly rejects the basic order of its country. Here Israel is caught between a rock and a hard place. It should answer this question. But if it would answer in favor of the Jewish state, the whole planet would cry out. If it would answer in favor to the separation of state and religion, it would cease to exist. The issue is, that Judaism is not just a religion, it's a social order that defines the Jewish peoples.
