The intewebs seem to be a buzz over the Israeli ads encouraging Israeli children not to become involved with American Jews. What do you think? Did you find the ads particularly offensive?

I think they were hypocritical. They're afraid Israeli kids living in the U.S. will turn Christian when most of Israel celebrates Hebrew holidays in a purely secular manner, and that American Jews will be callous about Israeli secular holidays, which by definition are neither religious nor American holidays, so I don't see the huge deal.

I can't believe anyone was stupid enough to give that a green light. The American Jewish lobby is what keeps America friendly with Israel. And Americans are a large source of donations to Israeli charities. To say nothing, historically, of the money American Jews gave Israel to help the country get off the ground.

Just as it was lucky that there were Jews in Diaspora in Babylon and Persia both before and after the fall of the First Temple, so it's lucky that there are Jews in Diaspora in America.
