Mr Strengo has made an intelligent and rational argument. I agree with him wholeheartedly! But as several respondents have pointed out, we are then left with the problem of how to ensure that Israel remains a Jewish state, i.e., the state of the Jews. If we are able to thrash out the question of what makes a Jew a Jew and what makes a Jewish state a Jewish state, the way will be clear for separation of religion and state in Israel. Dare we hope?
