Israel's right-wing adopts two policies when dealing with diaspora Jews. It encourages those who share its views to lobby their own governments on Israel's behalf and to support and donate money to those organisations which it deems acceptable. Those Jews who are not prepared to toe the party-line are simply greeted with much verbal abuse in the hope that we will shut-up and give-up. When Amos Oz addressed the J-Street conference he told of how American Jews had said to him that in public all Jews should present a united front so as not to give ammunition to our opponents. He said fine - but why can we not all unite under the banner of J-Street rather then Aipac!
