Taiwan and Israel share some similarities in the geo-political arena, and surely more disparities between them...

Sun Lasting About 9 million Jewish-American population (including groups of affinity) is an "unfathomable" manifestation in the US. Many of them are relatively successful (be aware, could be a "positive" stereotype !) and quite "influential" in the US, in particular, the linguistic/communicative capacity - the most powerful weaponry to be a good warrior in the international battlefield - since English is still a strategically dominant language in this world. Mr. Natayahu said it all as a Harvard alumnus. You might notice that his opponents (or enemies, if you like) might not have the similar opportunities or "life chances" as he enjoys ! I think he speaks better English than that of those "elected" special interest groups bravo-ing him in the Capitol Hill - haha, my bias.

Stacy Paige Okay first you're not saying anything that the world doesn't know. 99% of Jews are successful and have been since the biblical times. Into doing we are less than 2% of the population of the entire world I would say yes it's very successful not quite sure what that has to do with Taiwan

Sun Lasting I see, mainly it is about the geo-political dimension. Taiwan faces a gigantic and formidable counterpart, and I think the pressure on Israel is no less than that of Taiwan. ( I am trying to be "neutral" ! ) I have friends and folks from different race, ethnicity, class, nationality, religion, and the rest of diverse groups.

Sun Lasting Similar risk taking, different scales: domestic vs. international - "RTW" (Right To Work to stir up national attention) and "address to the US 'partial' State of Union" (showering in the international lime-light).

Steven Deckelman Stacy Paige , I think she means that both Israel and Taiwan are (relatively) small countries (geographically) surrounded by much larger hostile forces.
