...Last year I have to say that I am sorry that you feel this way about Israel. For a Jew, Israel is the only place where a Jew can live with his people - even with all the bullshit that causes many Israelis to leave mostly for economic reasons. It's a tribal thing Armand, I feel sorry for you that you do not feel the connection. I take it that you have never been here? Try it sometime!
