US Jews don't get it. The tables have been turned and it is they that need help from Israel, not the other way round. Israel is head and shoulders above the US in technology, research, and defense. America seems on top because it has 336 million people (Israel has 7 million). On a per capita basis Israel outpaces the USA far and away. The question US Jews ought to ask themselves is whether they really believe they are safe, for the long term, in the USA. If you think this is a crazy remark, try reading the accounts of Albert Einstein, Max Born, and even Fritz Haber in the early 1930's. They were as convinced that Germany was the place for them forever as American Jews today. And they were educated people. Very educated. Before the US economy totally tanks and everyone turns on the Jews there, a smart US Jew will get over to Israel, find a job, and get settled. Don't wait.
