    Mr. Eldar ignores, or simply does not see, that there is a growing disenchantment amongst American Jews with Israel's march to the extreme right. This creeping alienation is based in religious identity. What are the moral values of Judaeism? Are they humane, and humanitarian rooted in human decency? Or are they the ruthless and rapacious values which seem to rule Israel today? Israelis seem to believe that no matter what they do American Jews will approve blindly. Support was much more unflagging when Israel and American Jews shared common values.
