    Amin, you don't seem to get the fact that all Jews are connected to Israel and our security, wherever we are, depends on the existence and religious legalities of this state. Whether you are a Jew in Israel, a Jew in Canada, or a Jew in Timbuktu, the state of Israel, established in 1948 by the U.N. a la independence of India in the previous year from British rule, is the Jewish homeland of all Jews whether in Diaspora or living within it. This is the reason, for example, the Law of Return, a policy which provides every Jew the right to immigrate into Israel, as a result of persecution throughout our history, and anti-semitism. Israelis do not want to occupy the Palestinians, and this is what the peace process is all about, Amin. Once again, Jews and Arabs coexisted in this region, and we have more commonalities than differences. I imagine, to be continued...P.S. I have dual citizenship.
