    "...Who gave you the right to affect change in a country in which you refuse to be a citizen," I am a citizen. Served in Zahal, 1983-88. Unlike yourself, my status as a citizen doesn't prevent me from rendering an honest appraisal about the true nature of Israels relationship with American Jews. "... If and when J Street supporters wish to affect change in Israel they are welcome to move to Israel and participate in the entire fabric of life here," I'm afraid thats not how it works. From now on this is a business transaction. You want to live in a villa in Ariel? You want us to lean on our leaders so they'll lean on the UN for you? Thats nice. Whats in it for us? "...It is insulting to read an American telling us, Israelis, how to conduct our lives while she/he is sipping coffee at Starbucks in the United States" I never go to Starbucks. I will not speak in latin to order a lousy cup of coffee.
