    religious freedom is the respect afforded to people who want to keep their religion. if you choose you don't want to be Jewish you don't have to. if you feel you do and you want to bring your kids up that way you can choose to do so and be supported by the state. as a definition of democracy, is "A system of government by the 'WHOLE' population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives." you guys seem to think that your opinion is the only and correct one. guess what? we (religious jews) argue in fact we think you are entitled to have an opinion and we are too. you can live your, lives build yourself "state supported" schools, and we can too! secular is not the only right lifestyle, it's one of many right lifestyles the question is who you ask. Israel is not a racist state! it lets Arabs dress the way they want and teach the quran to their kids, it funny to hear Jews complaining that we teach our kids judieasm in Israel!!!!!!! good lord!! this is ridicules
