Israel and israelis have built a jewish consciousness that is different from that which arose from the ghettos in Europe and became the trademark of diaspora judaism. It is a pity that american jewery is contributing a vast influence of diaspora judaism to meodern israel by sending all kinds of religious misfits to Israel. Let us keep judaism israeli and modern... Let us try to build up Ahad Haam's ideal of turning Israel into a navigation help for the diaspora (and not the other way around!).
