This article is spot on. The reality is that Israel's brand of Jewish values and Jewish identity is not in sync with historic mainstream Judaism and its values. The most radical ideas and streams of Judaism are slowly taking over the soul of the country (as in our historic past - end of Second Temple period and the Bar-Kochba rebellion) and leading to the not too distant future demise of the "Third Commonwealth". Why should sane, forward-looking American Jews wish to connect themselves to the Israeli-Jewish insanity? In the end the mix of nationalism and religion are a dangerous cocktail. The ((sraeli) Jews are not inured to this.
