    Chief Rabbi Amar courageously states the truth about the Reform movement - whose "rabbis" in the USA REGULARLY officiate at weddings in CHURCHES - with the full blessings of the Reform "chief rabbis". One important difference between Israeli (and some other) Jewish secularists and the Reform (and Conservative) activists is that the former are happy to follow no religion while the latter are hell-bent on inventing a new one. American Jews have some need for reducing their guilt in acting completely un-Jewishly and Reform "rabbis" are happy to provide all the necessary permits - for a fee, of course. Israelis, though, don't ask for anyone's permission to act as anti-Jewish as they feel like and so have no need for R and C. Reform and Conservatitve ideology and practice do not appeal to Israelis, but the increasingly militant R & C representatives in Israel are indeed digging their claws into the country (often siding with Islamist Palestinians, curiously enough). Rabbi Amar sounds a valid warning.
