Hard to divine what exactly is the bottom line of this Article. Seems to me that the key anomaly in Israeli social society is the lack of boundaries between religion and state. of course 95% of citizens would agree that the government supported space should have kosher food and that shabat is our day of rest (though we may differ on the definition of "rest") and the Jewish holidays are our national holidays regarding vacation time etc. However in all areas of personal choice and coercive interference, especially marriage and divorce, as well as enforcing our core values such as educating for modern life (math science English history comparative cultures Democracy) and values, and eliminating all of the make work jobs for the religious community (city rabbis dayanim, mashgichim, religious councils, hevra kadisha etc etc) which is basically hidden additional unemployment, all these are the big issues which sooner or later we have to confront if we want to survive.
