yerushalayim30% of respondents to an Israel Channel 2 survey said they would emigrate if an opportunity arose. In the past two weeks, since the end of Operation Protective Edge, leaving Israel has again become a main topic of discussion.

  1. The real question should be: “How many people would pack out and move to Israel if they could?” I’m sure those numbers would be staggering.

  2. So what’s new?
    It’s always been this way. That’s why the USA imposed a visa requirement on Israeli coming to the USA. Israelis who came to “visit” would “forget” to leave.

  3. The signs of the IMMINENT GEULAH are LOUD and
    CLEAR.
    SO WE ARE ALL GOING TO ISRAEL very soon.
    Let’s increase in acts of goodness and
    kindness. Another Mitzva, another act of
    Chesed which will arouse Hashem’s mercy to
    FULFILL HIS PROMISE to AM YISROEL and BRING
    THE ULTIMATE GEULAH IMMEDIATELY!!!
    B’CHESED UVERACHAMIM AMEN!!!
