So in that crucial respect, Israel is nothing like Scandinavia, where religion plays almost no role in politics, to my knowledge.
Except that Israel's social policies are much, much closer to Scandinavia than they are to the Middle East.

Believe me, you don't. Israel isn't my area of focus but I still am confident enough about my knowledge of the area.

From Inglehart Welzel:
Israel .26 .36

That puts them as more secular than such bastions of religisosity as the UK.

You're right. I am not exhibiting much maturity...You're a jerk and a phony. But you are henceforth on my IgnoreList. I have no way of controlling my temper here other than ceasing to read the garbage.
I'd say the salient matter, then, is your lack of self control...
