Israel launces ad campaign that insults Jewish-Americans
A Israeli ad campaign suggests living in America will kill the heritage of Jewish-Americans.
Jeffrey Goldberg writes in The Atlantic.
I don't think I have ever seen a demonstration of Israeli contempt for American Jews as obvious as these ads.
The idea, communicated in these ads, that America is no place for a proper Jew, and that a Jew who is concerned about the Jewish future should live in Israel, is archaic, and also chutzpadik.
The message is: Dear American Jews, thank you for lobbying for American defense aid (and what a great show you put on at the AIPAC convention every year!) but, please, stay away from our sons and daughters.
NOTE: Chutzpadik--showing chutzpah; not showing due respect; impudent; impertinent; brazen
