    ABJ and his ilk, having found themselves to be out of tune with most Israeli Jews, are now trying to make hay with this topic, ironically after having failed to mobilize mainstream American Jews to support their naive "peace" plans and naive Arab/Jewish brotherhood slogans (I too wish they were realistic dreams). The Canainate slogans of fifty years ago, of a Hebrew rather then Jewish nation, have not made much progress in Israel either. I wonder what kind of research Barkat has done to support his claim that "the vast majority of the hundreds of thousands of Israelis living in the U.S. do not participate in the life of the Jewish community, do not attend its institutions and do not contribute a thing to its existence." This is an absurd statement, unless limited to Israeli students and recent arrivals in the US. Interestingly, the second generation Israelis in the US are quite heavily involved in the Jewish communities in the US, and in their support for Israel.
