"Top U.S. Reform rabbi to Israel: Freeze East Jerusalem building" - Haaretz Earth to America, come in America. America, Israel's ruling clique does not even consider anyone Reform or American as a 'real' Jew. Now days even Orthodox conversions are considered suspect in Israel. No 'conservative' or 'reform' person is certain to be considered a 'real' Jew by the Ultra-Orthodox who control the definition of 'Jew' in Israel. The Haredi are quite certain 'secular Jews' are in fact not really Jews at all. And Israel's government seems to deem that the Haredi are right. The idea that an American Reform 'rabbi' could even be a real 'Jew' is alien to Netanyahu's Israel. And any opinion of an American Reform Rabbi is null and void.
