You have a lot of nerve to write this. There are more Jews in the US
than in any other country, including Israel. Antisemitic sentiment is
rampant throughout the world, including the US, but the Jews have found
a refuge in the US like nowhere else, outside Israel (which the US
supports wholeheartedly, much to its peril, and rightly so). Jews have
access to the highest economic and social positions in the US. True, a
Jew isn't likely to be elected President, but neither is an atheist like
me. Would you prefer that there were no "acceptance and assimilation of
Jews and Jewish culture in the U.S."?
