    You have my attention. What is to be done? I too see the drift between Israel and American Jewry. The anonymity afforded by the Internet allows people to spew, and you can therefore see right in this exchange the problem. American Jews are expected to offer automatic and unquestioning loyalty to whoever happens to be running Israel. Give money. Give support. Take a trip. At the same time Israelis are not even bothering to conceal their very low estimation of American Jews. And here we come to a huge difference. In one community you have people living in a society not ruled by clerics, and in other you have one where rabbis have a rather ridiculous say over a person's most personal decisions. In one you have individualism and in other you have a form of national collectivism. And now you have the PM who apparently thinks that it would be interesting to have a US government that cut spending on the needs of Americans and increased spending on Israel- as in the type of expense involved in a war. Hmmm. I wonder how that will come out
