This is a sorry revelation. Being a Canadian, my approach and attitudes to Isreal are similar to my American friends and relatives. WE support Israel wholheartedly, but sometimes not without reservation. Begin's entry into settlements in the territories was considered by many in North America to be a disastrous mistake, which it indeed was. But don't forget that non Israeli Jews play an important role in lobbying their governments in favour of Israel: not an easy job today.Without diaspora Jewry Israel would not exist today. Diaspora Jewry also has something to say about Israel's public relations efforts; in a word, they stink. They are totally ineffective, if not non-existent.WAKE UP ISRAEL!!!!!
