In the United States, it is relatively easy for one to marry outside one one's ethnic group because one has been acculturated in the same system and cultural environment as those of other ethnic groups. Moreover, one speaks the same language as well. One of the things that most facinates me about Israel is that the people there have virtually no interest in anything Jewish, as all of it has been expropriated, cynically or otherwise, for ideological or political purposes. The same is true for Jewish people: When a Jew comes to Israel, no one is interested in him, but a gentile, American or otherwise, they are fawning all over him or her. If one's native language is Modern Hebrew, then the only non-Jews available for marriage who speak that language are Arabs, and in Israel, that would be taboo.
