    I am from the US. When I was young I served in a combat unit in the IDF for three years, and many months of reserve duty in Lebanon after that. After the army, I worked a few years in Israel and paid taxes there... Before moving back to the States. I don't demand a say in Israeli affairs and I have much more skin in the game than most US Jews like Dennis Ross who make a living off the issue but have never so much as sacrificed a cocktail party for Israel. However, I will say this; Israelis want and need the support of diaspora Jews. Collectively (Israelis and diaspora Jews) far outnumber those claiming to be "Palestinians". Together, our claim to the Jewish national homeland is stronger. Decided, we are weaker... So yes, we must find a way to incorporate the entire Jewish people in the ongoing effort to secure Israel's future... But we must always defer to those taking the real risks on the ground. Dennis Ross and company do not fall into that category.
