for the law prohbiting boycotting products from the settlements, or for the rabbis who say don't rent to Arabs, or for the rabbis who get Arabs fired for flirting with Jews, or for the rabbis who would sacrifice individual rights for which Jews have fought for centuries on the alter of tribalism not to mention their own power. Israel was compelling as an act of self redemption of a persecuted people. As a home for chauvinists and religious bigots, it's leaves me and many others cold. The present goverment rubs in ones face again and again the perspective of the chauvinists and bigots. Do they really expect loyalty of the diaspora in return (other than the minority of right wingers in the diaspora). Can't wait for the orthodox rabbis to tell me that I'm not Jewish and that if I wanted to come to Israel, I need to convert, unless I can get birth certificates going back seven generations proving Jewish mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers, and so on.
