    I understannd the article and the subject is of great importance to me. I do have a problem discuussing this candidly with the anti-semitic likes of Davey Vickery and others who by no means are interested in my welfare. It is important to remember that most American Jews see Israel as a "Refuge". Like a safe deposit box to be opened when necessary. they travel o Israel on organized tours and speak to politiicans annd visit Army bases. all this to check out thhe arrangements for that horrible day when they may be thrown, once again, into exile. As for AB Yehoshua, he is a writer and has a habit of seeking PR. what I would like to see is visitors to Israel seekinng out thhe culture and the arts. Makinng more contact with the common-man as well as patting the back of soldiers. As for L:inncoln's point, the americann Jew is no more likberal than the Israeli. My wife hates the American "fake smile" the"bullshit" "have a nice day", and a genral vaccuousness.
