WOW.. author really doesn't udnerstand Amercian Jewry at all. Their lack of understanding on Israelis has NOTHING to do with democracy and opportunies in Israel (nice editorial line there for Haaretz though!). American Jews are a minority, their grandparents came from countries where they were minorities and persecuted. To see Jews living in a Jewish country, with no fear that the governemnt will take away your right to live as a jew (see San fransisco trying to ban circumsision), while kicking your enemies ass at the same time, mesmirizes US jews. Being a minority binds the jewish community together. Israels can not understand what it is like to be a minority (i.e. weak) and don't understand how being Jewish (i.e. a minority) is a bonding experience. Democracy and opportunity and Israel's neighbours having nothing to do with it!!!!
