Mr. Oren is asking U.S. Jewry to defend Israel blindly. American Jewry is mostly liberal, that means they love Israel, but they also love human rights, fair play and a future where both Israelis and Palestinians can live in peace. Asking them to support Israel's apartheid policies, settlements that are guaranteed to kill any prospects for peace and the subjugation of millions under draconian rules is not what American Jewry is about. By asking for their support Mr. Oren indirectly admits that Israel's policies is widening the chasm between Israel and American Jewry. New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman is a case in point.
