    The "learned" fabbi for some reason has forgotten that one of the tenets of the Zionist movement, at least at one time it its history was the Negation of the Galut. "The Old Man" said that Judaism was bound to go into oblivon in the Diaspora, and he even quoted the Talmudic statement that a Jew who lives outside of the Land of Israel is tanatamount to being an Idol Worshiper. Yeah, that most secular Jew who didn't claim to beleive in any form of religious Jewish expression. If you look through Halachic Judaism, there is hardly a place where the Centrality of the Land of Israel is not at the forefront, the "two" days of holiday because . . . the prayer for rain in the Land of Israel, the mentioning of the Temple in Jerusalem in most of the prayers . . . That a large number of American Jews are not well versed in the above cultural content, well . .. . that says darsheni, no?
