It is rediculous to have anyone other than Israelis vote for the future of your country. You are a real nationality and only people who live there, participate there, are from that culture (and I don't mean jewish but Israeli culture) should have a say about what direction Israel should go. It is not healthy to have Israel so dependent on the US, it erodes its sense of identity and people here in NYC start believing that they have as much a right to dictate to the Israeli goverment than you do. PEACE.
