    Amiram Barkat's article is indeed partial. Albeit I do subscribe to his conclusions when it comes to American Jews, it should be emphasized, that there is nothing further from tne truth when we analyze the french jews's attitude and strong ties with Israel, mostly from the Sefardic majority population living in FRance. Their feelings contradict the American jews's. The latter, a recent poll showed, do not feel an particular tie toward Israel. Being a Sefardi living in the USA, I, very unfortunately, found myself confronted with a harsh discrimination steming form the american jews, who view any non american jew, as a foreigner at best , and as an ennemy at worse. I experienced this harsh discriminatory attitude during my long residency and fellowship training inthe USA, AND later on, while living in Miami where the 2 communities do not mingle. We Sefardic jews i n Miami live separated from the American mostly Ashkenazi jews as Cuban americans live separated from the Anglo saxons.
