Caroline Glick Comes Around.....................from Dan Friedman

[There was a time when Jewish patriot Caroline Glick would look to America's Jewish community to support the Zionist cause in Israel. More than once, I advised it was a waste of time. I am happy to say she has changed her mind and has finally accepted the sad reality. This is pulled from her recent column in the Jerusalem Post, ISRAEL, AMERICAN JEWRY AND TRUMP’S GOP. df]
"This then brings us back to BDS.
The only way to diminish the groundswell of American Jews who are becoming hostile toward Israel is to defeat the forces of political BDS on campuses. To do this, Israel should turn not to the Jewish community but to evangelical Christians, the Trump administration and the Republican- controlled Congress.
As for the American Jews, Israel needs to stop viewing the community as a resource and begin to view it as a community in crisis. To this end, the most significant contribution Israel can make to the American Jewish community – particularly to non-Orthodox American Jews – is to encourage them to make aliya. Assuming that current trends will continue, the only way non-Orthodox American Jews can have faith their grandchildren will be Jewish is to make aliya."
