    We know how wonderful is, we support it and are loyal to it-we didn't pay for it- It's true that we give money, but that isn't paying for it. The people living in Israel pay for it on a daily basis by living there. We help pay for it. Respect is something we all want, and you're right a little less bluster would be nice, but the fact is that the birthright program is wonderful and the kids who've gone on it return with a level of attatchment that may make for less "fifth jews". In the old days it was the various zionist youth movements that kept the attatchment going but they have fallen by the way-side for the most part. As well the orthodox jewish community always kept a strong bond, by orthodox I refer to the crochet kippah group. Replacing these two groups by a secular jewish community in the diaspora won't work becasue there is nothing to tie the communities.
