At an event last week, a freshman Democrat from Minnesota made a reference to “political influence in this country that says it is okay for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country.” Recently I attended a 3 hour long Bas Mitzvah. One hour in the rabbi was leading us in a prayer for the Israeli military. Two hours in we were singing a song for “our” country and I frankly sat there wondering which country we were actually singing for!
Coming off of the holocaust I completely understand why Jewish people need a plan B.
