Those who deny the right of Diaspora Jews to speak out are basically saying that Israel must cease to matter to us. Or worse, that we must shift with every wind while we detach our brains from our wallets. I haven't seen the right wing in the diaspora being quiet, either. Usually, the rabbinic pulpit is very noisy in defending the biblical real estate argument. Why shouldn't Jews care about the moral actions, or immoral actions, of our fellow Jews? Or are Israelis not to be considered Jews when it comes to shaming us? I note that the internet stuff telling us how many brains there are in Israel never cease. How can we shut off our minds and consciences?
