Israel vs. Cincinnati

A man checked into the hostel the other day and said:

“I don’t understand. I made Giyur (converted to Judaism) and came to Israel and I see that everyone’s walking around with tattoos and not keeping Shabbat. Why did you come to Israel, then? You can do that in Cincinnati.”

I don’t even have words to start a coherent response to that.
