You may be able to apply for an Israeli visa via another country near Bangladesh that have diplomatic relations with Israel, but you need to go there in person as far as I know. If you get the visa then fly via another country not direct to Israel. Also ask Israeli Immigration not to stamp you passport when you arrive there.
If you feel that this may cause trouble for you in your country, then i strongly suggest that you do not go. Also please note that you may face trouble at the Israeli airport/border too. Please refer to the 2 following discussions in Israel Forum in Tripadvisor where this was discussed and I shared my experience at the border:
