Without the Jewish brethren in America how much support does Yehoshua think the U S would give Israel....duh NOT! The various Jewish organizaions in the U S have given money and political clout to help Israel. I have 2 cousins in Israel and they are quite worried as to the theological mindset that the Israeli government is headed. We Jews in the U S are now being told "we aint very Jewish" ...."we know nothing about Israel" "we have abandoned our religion" etc etc Meanwhile the Israelis I know who live here do not want to go back to Israel...The last time I was in Jerusalem it looked like it was becoming an ultra orthodox shetl....We jews in the U S like our Reform Judaism and would miss the Mets and the Giants anyway.
