    'The distinction between Israel and Jews is bogus.' There you are then. How -- logically -- can a Jew be accepted as a good Frenchman, or a good American, or a good anything else? Israel is always his country now. Even if -- like Goldstone -- he has never lived there. Ultimately, this runs up against the problem that you can't have your cake and eat it too. It's really quite a common problem. If I want to take advantage of Canada's great health services, I really have to move there. I can't just SAY I'm Canadian -- I have to spend at least 180 days in the year there. Canadian identity -- and Israeli identity -- is not a coat one can take off or put on at will. Either a Jew is an Israeli, or a Jew isn't an Israeli. That SOME Jews have decided they are Israelis shouldn't impose any burden on other Jews. At least, I would prefer that to not be the case.
