I wonder why Israeli jews give such importance of being ( or not being ) jew. Yeah. The future ambassador might be jewish. So what ? Filkenstein is also a jew and that did not prevent him from praising Hezzbolla. Noam Chomsky is also jewish and a leading Israeli critic. To be a jew does not mean to be sympathetic towards israeli jews or israel.
