You threaten to take away that nostalgic notion that they belong in Europe: the Israeli singer in the Eurovision, the Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball team’s victories in the European league – and you’re seriously impeding their way of life.
Secular Israelis, much like that girl from Oshkosh, perpetually feel that they should be someplace else. That’s why there are so many Israelis where you live: they’re someplace else.
Stop any Israeli and ask them which they’d rather give up, participation in the Eurovision or East Jerusalem – I expect the results will be surprisingly even. If not worse.
