    Whilst you are quite write that U.S. Jews should give some thought to their relationship with Israel, matter regarding which, although to a lesser extent, concerns all Jews in most countries, the vital issue is that Israel must give very deep thought to its relationship with the U.S. In a moment of deep crisis for Israel the great paradox is emerging, ie., that the "blank cheque" given to Israel could become a nightmarish "greek present". Israeli leaderdship cannot be so naive to beleive that such support will never be withdrawn. When the definition of national interest is redefined by the White House it will become apparent that the write wingers in Jerusalem undertook grave political and military actions under the delusion of impunuity. Israel deserves to survive and must do so; the road to consolidation of that still young State lies in the adoption of intelligent and rational policies and the clear perception that Israel needs friends and respect in as broad a base as it can get.
