Not sure why the OP wants AA to fly to TLV...

I guess there's the advantage of a nonstop flight and the ability to use eVIPs.

Yup. You're clearly confused.

You receive Gold status (basically) if you fly 25,000 miles or 30 segments in a calendar year. Either you have it, or you don't. Having "AAdvantage" just means that...
