The biggest mistake diaspora can, and is making, is that notions that prevail among Jewish individuals or groups around the world must be recognized and accepted by the Israeli public. As a legitimate independent country, if you wish so, only Israeli residents, voters decide what’s in their best interests.

(“Kol Israel Areyvim ze ba-ze”) – All Jews are responsible for one another. This is an ancient call, valid for all generations.
