Your comment:
Israel was reborn as a State in 1948, after the Shoah decimated the East of Europe of six million jews, most of whom were religious people. So, even if the State was brought into being by secular socialist jews, it was important for a "State of the Jews", to revive religious Judaism by allowing a -small- number of Torah students. Since then, their numbers increased exponencially, becoming an unbearable burden. A similar law ought to be drawn for the equally non participating israeli arabs- 20% of the population- who should do their share in defense of their country, or be considered a 5th column.
