People arguing that Israel owns nothing to Diaspora or that Diaspora owns nothing to Israel are both stupid. In Diaspora or in Eretz, we Jews are all Am Yisrael and have to respect each other. For the first decades of its existence, Israel could not have existed without the human and financial help of the Diaspora. But now the state is strong and a majority of Jews (halakhic) live in its homeland. So it becomes the duty of the Jewish state to assist its Diaspora. But attitudes such as those shown by Sharon, Ilan and so many Israelis will not help. If the state of Israel does want to assume the leadership of the Jewish people it should respect the Diaspora.
