    Of course what you left out trumps anything that the Diaspora could ever give Israel....a home. Maybe in the US they haven't needed it(yet) but the millions of Jews who needed a place where they could openly be a Jew in the one place that every observant Jew dreamt of at least 3 times a day. Where a Jew doesn't have to decide between working on the day of rest or losing their job. Where a Jew does not have to slide of his kippa in case non-Jews see it. A place where there will be Jewish continuity long after American Jewry will have intermarried and assimilated itself into the memory. That is what Israel is and that is what the Diaspora owes a debt of gratitude for. As an ex-Diaspora Jew I owe Israel everything, and I came from a western country!
