I am actually both Israeli and American and AB Yehoshua just got me hot under the collar with his stupid remarks. It reminds me of Israelis in my youth when I was an olah hadasha and they were so incredibly holier than thou about being sabras. They could do with alot less bluster and a drop of humility, especially when speaking about fellow Jews. That and the fact that the sacred cow of outside Jewish contributions should be recognized. Without the diaspora's $$ there would be no Israel. Every hospital, museum, park bench, tree, university and many many businesses (most recently Buffett acquisition)was built with foreign funds and they shouldn't forget that fact. AB Yehoshua and his crowd would be in a sorry state without the diaspora Jews who he thinks are somehow lesser Jews.
