I should not have to be forced to live by their religious rules and laws. History has proven repeatedly that Theocracies are the most oppressive forms of government. To survive Israel had better relegate religion to its proper place – in the home and Schul. Keep all of it out of my life!!!!

Israel is the home of the Jewish people and we must insist that we keep the the laws of our religieon and not have hametz available during Pesah.

IN ISRAEL – PUBLIC LAWS OF KASHRUTH SHOULD BE RELIANT UPON THE “TORAH TRUE VALUES” WHICH ARE UPHELD BY ORTHODOX JEWS. THIS EROSION IS A DISGRACE. WHEN ISRAEL WAQS FIRST ESTABLISHED DAVID BEN-GURION SPOKE TO A LEADING RABBI IN JERUSALEM ABOUT A SIMILAR PROBLEM. HE ADVISED DAVID BEN-GURION TO ALLOW THE ISRAELI LAW TO REFLECT THE TORAH’S VIEWPOINT SINCE IT WAS THERE DOMAIN. DAVID BEN-GURION AGREED AND EARLY ISRAELI LAW FOLLOWED THE TORAH IN SUCH MATTERS.
THIS DECISION IS A DISGRACE AND SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO EXIST. HOW CAN A JEWISH STATE ALLOW NON-KOSHER LAW TO EXIST. THIS IS A SHANDA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Polls show that a majority of Jews in Israel (orthodox and secular) do not buy hametz on Passover and do not want to see it publicly displayed.
