    The Jews in the Diaspora, especially in the US and Europe do much better than the Israelis, they can be proud of enormous achievements in numerous fields. On a visit to London last year I was watching a group of Israelis behave themselves in such a disgraceful way in a museum, exhibiting rudeness and lack of manners and minimal respect for all others, something I have witness Israelis do numerous times all over the world and in Israel, that I thought to myself that it's the Diaspora that should feel like Israel owes it a great debt not the other way around. Beyond the financial and political support, Israel would have been just another Levantine, third rate nation. It's the Diaspora's influence that still keeps Israel, although barely, above the rest of the region's shoddy countries.
