Judaism... a religion or a nationality. That's the philosophical argument for the ages. In the daily lives of Israelis, that concept is so opaque... so fuzzy, it's absolutely impossible to distinguish one from the other. I don't think there's another country in the world... that experiences such contortions over that concept. Even the Christians in Rome consider themselves Italian first. Maybe it's a factor of thousands of years of persecution or that age-old syndrome of roaming the globe. What ever it is... the manifestations that have evolved are so deep-rooted in the Israeli psyche, that I'm afraid it will be extremely difficult to unravel.
