After 23 years, emigration from Israel takes off

This week, for the first time since 1984, more people emigrated from Israel than immigrated into it. Since mid-1980s, Russian aliyah temporarily reversed the long-term trend where more people left Israel than came in. At least 500,000 and probably close to a million Jews emigrated from Israel, mostly due to insecurity, economic hardships and lack of job opportunities. Polls indicate 60 to 80% of Israelis sympathize with those who leave the country. Sohnut seeks to offset the trend by bringing to Israel non-Jewish immigrants and the people with a single Jewish grand-grandparent.

Emigration from Israel is the sign the government should pay their attention to as soon as possible. If they continue their policy of war and killing, one day there will be no one left to make war and kill. Emigration from Israel is the characteristics typical of many countries nowadays demonstrating how dissatisfied people are with what they have at home.
