    Mr.Gitlin, you state: "It's time we began asking deeper questions about the philanthropic and political ramifications of this war and our relationship with Israel, before the next crisis erupts." The backing of American Jews these past 60 years with money and political interventions with Congress have never been enough. We have become too dependent on American directives. The fact is that because America tells us what to do, the PA and Hezbollah, Fatah and Hamas and now Iran all have joined forces to kidnap, kill, maim and murder out people. Gush should never have been evacuated and any thing Olmert and CO. does is negative. Israelis are Jews,but lack proper JEWISH EDUCATION. That's why the secularist leftists have taken control of ERETZ YISROEL, they are not AM KADOSH. Jewish History cannot be taught without Torah, Mitzvot and Midot. And there are too many Yordim in USA who are glad not to fight in IDF. In '67 many american Jews joined IDF,during Yom Kippur war every Jew davened. NOW?
