I don't see the problem. Israel is supposed to be a Jewish state isn't it ? So it's not unreasonable to follow the Torah as given to the Jewish people on mount Sinai. These laws have endured from then till now. If you don't want to follow them, that's fine. If you're halachically Jewish you'll still be Jewish. I can't see how it's right for someone to come along and say oh that's too hard for you, it's okay, do it ( or don't do it) and we'll still say you're following the laws. Imagine if someone came along and said, oh you're in a hurry? Well, run that red light and we'll still say you're following the law. My sister in law left her country of residence in order to convert. Her conversion took several years. Today she is completely accepted as Jewish and I dare say she would be accepted in Israel. If you're going to do something do it right!!
