    Who on earth would they be directed at if not the Jewish community? Here's another take on it Netanyahu Government Suggests Israelis Avoid Marrying American Jews - Jeffrey Goldberg - International - The Atlantic





    As you will see at the bottom of that link he was not alone in his assessment that

    Jewish Federations Take Stand Against Israeli Ad Campaign - Jeffrey Goldberg - International - The Atlantic

    showing that the Jewish Federations of North America agreed with him and that no doubt is why the ad's were pulled.

    Interesting,so if you are Jewish you are only half a Jew if you live in the USA.This thinking I was told about by a friend (Jewish) circa 10 years ago......the ultra orthodox Jews have this scale of how Jewish one is.depending how far from Israel you live. tor
