I consider this whole topic moot. First of all, a large percentage of American Jews do feel a connection to Israel and Israelis; and further I am sure that a large percentage of Israelis feel for the Diaspora Jews. The issue I feel this topic needs to address is the disappearing American Jew. Intermarriage has plauged our people; I love Israel, but as many Israelis would hate to admit, Israel is dependant upon the American Jew for political and financial support. So I think that the American Jewish community through social acitivites (I purposely exclude religous activities becasue those Jews are not what we are worried about) the Jew we should worry about are those who are only connected to Judiasm socially and culturally, those Jews who often marry non-Jews, sadly like most of my friends. So if I were an Israeli, i'd be concerned not only about the fate of the Diaspora, but the disappearing American Jew.
