    To Rabbi Yoffie: Dear Sir, Why don't you don't you simply enjoy your American way of life and leave us alone? You are there. You are well integrated US Citizens. We here are Israeli citizens - living a decent life and continuing to build a wonderful country. Next week we are voting -not you. It's that simple. Please try to worry exclusivelly about your congregations in the USA and continue bothering G-d in any way that you like. PLEASE LEAVE US ISRAELIS IN PEACE. Having served in the front lines during three wars and 36 (thirty-six) years of reserve duty here, I know that I can rely only on my fellow Israeli soldiers. You have absolutely no say here - just as I have no say in the USA. Your donations will not bring back the many friends that I have lost in the Army. As an ordinary, secular Israeli citizen, I'm really not really interested in any dialogue with you, so spare us the statistics. You have not earned the right to advise Mr. Netanyahu on religious matters. Your letter to our prime minister reads like a bloated hypostatisation, full of polite Chutzpah.
