Israeli Jews Know Best

I feel bad that Gary Rosenblatt feels the “job” of supporting Israel is getting harder every day (“Frustration With Israel Is Growing Here At Home,” Editor’s column, Jan. 8).

First of all, supporting Israel is not a job — it is a responsibility. Second, supporting Israel is not getting harder for real pro-Israel Jews; we understand that there are differences, but they do not matter in the long run. What is getting harder is understanding American Jews who think they know more about what is good for Israel than Israeli Jews. Chutzpah to the max.

To be fair, it should also be noted that there is growing frustration in Israel with the American Jewish community. With so many Americans still supporting Obama, being in favor of the Iran fiasco and supporting J Street, the Israeli frustration is warranted.
