Judaism is a cultural and religious identity, which must not be equated with Zionism, a political movement.
I'd ask Chile, or Argentina or maybe even Canada or others if they'd like to have us and accept us as their guests, and build a new Zion built on peace rather than war.
"Gospel music kicks much ass and is a beautiful way that people praise God. It's a rich musical wellspring of American Music, with which I am deeply in love. It's a scene where amateur musicians can perform with national stars and it is a reminder that the earth is full of wonderful musicians."
It is my understanding that a large part of why Israel actually was created (not ideologically but practically) was that Zionists knew that it suited America's strategic interests for them to be there in the Middle East. They knew that they would not be abandoned as a simple matter of, perhaps, savvy politicking. This was part and parcel to the Zionist movement's success in advancing its goals post-WWII (although certainly not singularly responsible), but even more a part of why Israel has received the kind of support that it does ever since. $51 million a day is a big investment.
