We have many Jewish friends. None of them support Israel in the middle east and it puzzles us because we (Wife and I) support Israel. No one ever explains it, either. They change the subject.

When I was younger, I never owned my part-Irish heritage because of the terrorist fighting in Northern Ireland. I didn't know enough about the issues to understand what was going on, so I disavowed the whole thing. Perhaps many American Jews are the same way -- they are ethnically Jews, but do not practice the Jewish religion and do not feel any obligation to be stereotyped into taking sides into a war zone. I'm not saying this is good or bad; just sayin.'

Dittos to your comments.

Our Jewish friends that either don't support Israel at all or it's so weak as to be non-existent.

Jewish friends and acquaintances consider me radical, like "ultra-conservative" Jews in Israel and think I'm only supporting Israel because I want to convert Jews!

Of course, those Jews of whom I speak, know nothing about their heritage and certainly understand nothing at all about their religion!
