Right on! I was actually embarassed watching Noa Tishbi making her pitch to Allen. Allen's image of what it means to be Jewish is so narrow and negative, and so far from the Israeli reality of what it is to be Israeli, with all its richness and complexity, that he probably would not be able to see Israel as it is in any case. Israel does not need Woody Allen, and Israel might not be good for Allen, who does not seem to want to open himself up and look at things that don't fit in with his specific, American Jewish self-mocking way of expressing his Jewishness. We don't need him, and he doesn't need us, and it's all OK.
