Bring Israelis Back – What for?
by Steven Shamrak.
Israel is trying to persuade hundreds of thousands of its citizens living overseas to return home (about 650,000 Israelis live abroad). The project, dubbed "coming home", will try to lure Israelis living abroad to come back with tax breaks, employment and small business loans. "Every Israeli, even if he lives abroad, is Israeli at heart and knows that his home is here. I call on all Israelis to return home," Olmert said.
This is another misguided publicity stunt of the desperate, politicly bankrupt government! First of all it should be "Every Jew…" not just Israeli, Mr. Olmert. And the way things go there will be, G-d forbid, no Israel to come to, as corrupt, leftist self-haters continue the implementation of the current policy of national self-obliteration!
Jewish Israelis have been leaving Israel and Jews are delaying their decision to make Alia not because of the need for financial incentives, but mainly because of mafia-style bureaucracy, absence of National pride among politicians, artificial economic and political hardships which are imposed on people in order to hide wide-spread governmental corruption and, most importantly, due to lack of direction toward the future establishment of Eretz-Israel!
At the same time, the governments of Israel have become expert implementers of the "Divide and Conquer" principle, another reason why many Jews left Israel. Some 50 years ago it was Ashkenazi vs Sephardi, 30 years ago "Russians" vs Sabres and "Moroccans". Lately, the self-hating ruling elite has been using Secular vs Religious Zionists ('Extremists') card. As soon as Jews realise that we share a common destiny, no one will be able to manipulate and divide us. The achievement of our National dream will become an easy task!
Jews always were drawn to Palestine because they knew that it is their land and that they could build a Jewish homeland on the land of their ancestors. During the War of Independence Holocaust survivors, who had just come to Israel, attacked enemy positions with wooden sticks, due to lack of the weapons, to make this dream come true!
