Thank you to Gary Rosenblatt for such an important and amazingly articulate column, “Frustration With Israel Is Growing Here At Home” (Jan. 8).
He summed up so well how I feel and the problems I see. Israeli governments — especially this one — focus first on how to keep their coalition together and next, on how to plan the coalition following the next election. Sadly, the long-term good of the nation is not a priority.
This hungering for personal power and failure to provide for the good of the Jewish people is so contrary to every Jewish value. So I often wonder if the Israelis who continue to put up with this fiasco are increasingly placing the very future of the Israeli state at great risk of failure.
I have begun to think that if the Israeli gov’t does not change some of its direction, there is a serious risk that we could see increasing groups of American Jews feeling that they must protect their welcome in the U.S.
