Simcha613: Most frum Yidden will stand for the America anthem because they are American patriots; not “so as not to offend people.” They happily want to stand for the Medina Shel Chesed, as Rav Moshe called it. OTOH, the atheist state of Israel, born and living in sin, carries no such allegiance among the Bnei Torah who opposed its creation and the Zionist’s continual policies. The frum living in Eretz Yisroel (that you’re complaining about) are not Israeli patriots.

If Christians are offended that a Jew doesn’t bow to the Pope when meeting him, as is customarily expected of those who meet him, we will still not grant the Pope that honor when meeting him in order not to offend others.
