>>I can't believe that East End Jews were trying to emulate Americans! <<

I haven't worked my way all the way down the list so someone may have already 
given a better answer than this.

Bagels are not American. Not even specifically Jewish-American. They are 
European. They are NOT, however, middle eastern. Ergo Gili's comment that 
they didn't show up in Israel until comparitively recently.
