    Like most secular Jews - including those that are the great majority of the Israeli population - I am firmly in favour of separation of church/synagogue/mosque and state. But that's not the point. We Jews are a nation, a significant proportion of whom admittedly adhere to a particular religion. Israel is the nation state of the Jewish people, not the religion. Neither Hitler, nor the Tsars nor the Islamists worried about whether or not Jews were religious; their intention was genocide, not terminating a religion.
