Israel is the realization of the Jewish Nation's hopes. Anyone who lives in Israel and wants that to be eliminated from the national anthem SHOULD fail. If others wish to add to the national anthem, a line such as "nefesh yehudi "v'shel kol ezracheyha", homiya" then go ahead. But it would be wrong to eliminate the Jewish content, or for someone of the Judge's stature to not recite the anthem or remove the Jewish content.
