I do agree on some points. However you are wrong about the UK Jewry. They are not wimpish. They support an Israel that does not exist. For Israel has changed. The majority of diaspora Jews are shocked at the behavior of the far right, for what they read or hear in the media may well be the first sign of the times. Israel was once the shining light. Now its a mere flicker of a candle. A third intifada is about to unfold. Countries that were once our steadfast allies are aghast over"certain" affairs. That includes some damming accusations by the Goldstone Report and of of the overkill in the second Lebanon War and OP.Cast Lead. Sure, it was not on PM Netanyahu·s watch. However, the far right have in fact taken over daily government affairs to the delight of the media and the enemies of Israel. This state of political mayhem has caused a rift in the Jewish Diaspora. Far greater than many think. Have a nice day in sunny South Africa. Shabbat shalom from sunny and snowy Swiss Alps.
