Policy, which was brought up recently by government ministers purportedly as a way to deter potential terrorists, was ruled out by state's top legal officials.03:29 10.02.16 | 0 comments
Although I've respected Rivka's post in the past, I agree with you about this. The interests of our own country must come first at all times. I can never understand it when I see posts from Jewish-Americans to the IDF saying "Thank you for protecting the homeland", and other such remarks. If their first loyalty is to Israel rather than to America, they should be living there. It's fine to have loyalty to two countries; I have dual nationality myself (British & American) and have lived in both countries and have a parent from each. But I was born in NYC, and on the day upon which the interests of America and Britain diverge (hopefully never) I shall of course choose America over Britain. But many Jewish-Americans seem to hold Israel far more dear as they live in America, and I don't understand it.
