Young Jews on American campuses are raised on values of freedom and democracy. They cannot support and certainly not explain a country in which half of the people under its rule do not have the right to vote. And it will only get worse without a two states for two peoples solution. AND... Those who do not mind losing the support of our Jewish brothers in the US should consider the possibility that Israel may lose the US aid needed to maintain our qualitative military edge and to fund the Iron Dome, Magic Wand and Arrow batteries. Not to mention the US veto in the UN and Washington's behind-the-scenes diplomatic activity to protect us. All this may stop if America's Jews do not support us. Consider, for example, Congressman Gary Ackerman, a Jewish Democrat from New York who has introduced pro-Israel legislation in the House of Representatives. Speaking at the Israel Policy Forum gala in New York on Monday, he said Ehud Olmert, who also attended the event, "did not piss on the presidents shoe" when he visited the White House during his tenure as prime minister. "Its only common sense," Ackerman said, alluding to PM Netanyahu's visit to the White House about a year and a half ago, during which he criticized Obama's comments regarding the 1967 borders. The crowd laughed, Ackerman didnt. The congressman was even blunter in referring to Lieberman's recent comments at the Saban Forum. The foreign minister claimed that if the Palestinians "achieve their GDP of $10,000, we will achieve peace." Senior American officials who attended the forum were stunned by Lieberman's comments. Every US Jew, including Ackerman, heard what Lieberman said. "Somebody who is a very prominent politician who is not in this room commented during his presentation that part of the problem in dealing with the Palestinians was that they've not read Voltaire or Jean Jacque Rousseau and that they don't have a gross domestic product of $10,000 a person, per capita. And that's why you can't deal with them. And when they reach that level, then we can talk to them," Ackerman said at the gala. "How demeaning is that? How disrespectful. How do you get somebody to have confidence that you view them as an equal if you have that kind of attitude? How do you bring them to the table? And where is the table? And why should they show up at the table if thats the attitude? If we were deciding how to split a pizza and on the way to the table I ate three pieces, you'd start to wonder why the heck should you show up to the table? Its about dignity and respect. Ackerman is a Jew who loves Israel. He has done more for the Jewish state than many of those who are writing rude and hateful responses to this article. We're losing America's Jews - Israel Opinion, Ynetnews seems to me someone on this very board has been cautioning the ardent zionists of this as long as three years ago. something about having grown up in post war europe and how children with NaZI parents bearing the shame of their ancestors. this was about a two years after that person said that "anti-semitism" was way over used and was losing its effect and four years before the israeli foreign ministry decided to go with"jew hater" as an alternative. maybe "american jews" should also consider who they alienate besides their own children with their attitudes. i very sincerely doubt that any of the pro-palestinian posters were so adamantly anti-israel before they came to this place and places like it and encountered such arrogant and derisive jews as those who read this post. today, i could care less if israel was wiped of the face of the earth. i didn't get there on my own. i had some enthusiastic kosher guides.
