Why Steve Bannon likes nationalist Israel but dislikes internationalist American Jews – Peter Beinart – Haaretz 23.11.16
Trumpian right discovers what Jews have known for a century: that Zionism is built, in part, on the rejection of Diaspora Jewish identity. You can believe that Jews are a malevolent force in the United States and still love the Jewish state. It’s easy.

And see:

Illiberal support for Israel: antithetical to Jewish values and Israel’s interests – Lara Friedman – LobeLog 22.11.16
Make no mistake: for too many in the right-wing Jewish establishment, ‘pro-Israel’ has developed into an illiberal ideology in its own right... Nobody in the Jewish establishment can be permitted to make common cause, in all of our names and for the sake of a vision of Israel’s future that we reject, with the enemies of everything we hold dear.

Coming storm for Jews in the age of Trump?
