The following excerpt from the article is possibly the stupidest thing I have read in a long time: "the people who really need there to be a Jewish state in the world are the non-ultra-Orthodox Jews." Why do Americans need a Jewish state that doesn't even recognize the majority of American Jews as real Jews? No, we don't need you at all.
