I do not consider myself as an ultra orthodox Jew. I am a Chabad Chasid. I don't like the term "ultr" nor the term "orthodox". I don't like labeling a Jew. And I agree that Judaism belongs to all Jews, including so called "secular". But your generalizing and painting all religious Jews with one brush is troubeling. There is only a small minority of religious Jews who do not believe in being gainfully employed. There is only a handful of those who do not serve in the army. And regarding honesty, I invite you to visit the prisons in Israel. Would you find there many "ultra Orthodox" thieves, murderers, rapists etc? I don't mean to say that there are not at all, but a much smaller proportions than amongst the secular Jews. A life based on Torah, does produce more honest people.
