40% of Israelis thinking of emigration: Survey

Press TV – December 15, 2012

A new survey shows more than a third of Israelis want to immigrate to other countries due to economic problems and spiraling cost of living in the occupied territories.

Citing economic opportunities as the main reason, the poll conducted by Israeli newspaper Haaretz said that “almost 40 percent of Israelis are thinking of emigrating” to other states.

The survey came as the ailing economy of the Israeli regime has taken its toll on politics.

On October 15, Israeli parliamentarians voted to dissolve the Knesset and hold snap elections on January 2013 after the gridlock among different coalition partners over the passage of the 2013 austerity budget.

In recent months, Israelis have held protests against a package of sweeping austerity cuts, which the regime of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says were necessary to reduce the budget deficit and protect the economy.

Netanyahu has formed committees to address the demands of the anti-austerity protesters, but the demonstrators say no single concrete step has been taken.

Netanyahu has also ruled out the idea of spending from outside the budget for economic reforms, a response that Israeli protesters say disillusioned them.

In October, a survey conducted by the Israeli humanitarian aid organization indicated that some 75 percent of Israelis fear that their economy may collapse, which shows a huge increase in the figure compared with that of 2010.

The poll also showed that 78 percent of those surveyed said the Tel Aviv regime has no plans for fighting poverty and bridging the widening social gap.

  1. This would be a step in the right direction and hopefully will materialize sooner than later?

  2. Only economic reasons are causing alienation among the occupying Zionist in Palestine. Not the conduct of the blood-thirsty Israeli government?

    By comparison look at the horrible living conditions forced upon the Palestinian people by the Zionist Israel, especially in Gaza; and yet they stand their ground, for the love their country, they are a people, and it is their land.

    These imported persons in the West Bank that terrorize the Palestinians overtly, brutally, continuously; are not satisfied with they comparative life of luxury, and like the Israeli Zionist just want more money.

    How much does the US Government GIVE to Israel each year? Is it $3,000,000,000.00 (3 billion dollars) year after year? Or is it 5 billion dollars?

    That is not a loan, gut a gift. Plus billions more in military weaponry to add to their nuclear arsenal of WMDs.

    I as an American, am adamantly opposed to the repatriation-immigration of Israelis, dual citizens or not, unless equal aid is given to the Palestinian people, for repatriation to Palestine, and to take residence in the town and villages their families were terrorized out of in the 20th century.

    Further, it is time for knowledgeable Israelis to honesty tell what they know about 9/11. The price to pay for coming to America, must be the truth at minimum.

    • @puredemocracyrevolution, That’s why we call them the usurping Zionist entity. By the way your comment is right on target.

      • Dear B. Benhamid,

        Thank you for the concurrence. I read with appreciation your post on this best of all places to post. And I apologize for not proof reading my post. I write in a stream of emotion, often perceiving where that flow with take me. I speak the same way; extemporaneously in a passion. And it is often insightful for me! But, being dispassionate would mean a mechanical ability that is just going to be deleted if I read it, anyway. I do cringe when reading them. And the verbosity is just part of that driving force. On radio, I get on a roll in full passion that I could not have written out and read with the same impact on the listener.

        But, back on topic, I do not want any former South African colonist who moved to the West Bank to come to the United States. They adopt Hebrew, Judaism, and Zionism; in a completely mercenary and no-imperialist way that is disgusting. And what difference their is in others coming from Europe and the US, on the same conditions, and willingness to terrorize and murder Palestinians to occupy their land; are not welcome here from my point of view, as expressed. I think the vast majority of Americans would agree.

        The problem remains of finding a way or place to go. Why not ‘”GO BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM”

        I know that slogan has a ugly history, and one I have never used in reference to anyone, but its seems most apropos under the circumstances, of their own making. Is that where the term, “the wondering Jew” came from. Exiled as a pariah? The post WW2 sympathy mat was withheld by war criminals Roosevelt and Truman, with Zionist co-conspiracy to force European Jews into Palestine or concentration camps. And this time they did it to themselves for sure! The attack on the USS Liberty to get a false-flag attack by LBJ to nuke Egypt with hydrogen bombs in 1967, and 44 years later, 9/11. The Neo-Cons are the Jewish peoples worst enemy, if not the government of Israel itself!

        • The telling thing about this poll is that these usurpers really do have no emotional ties to the land they live in. One does not need to tell them to “go back where they came from,” they will opt to do so on their own if they are not given every advantage and comfort in carrying out their Zionist crime.

          Many of them, especially the settlers in the 67′ occupied lands, are from New York and other US locations.

          • Usurpers?!… Does the name Judea mean anything to you?!… As for emotional ties, 40% of Gaza “Palestinians” want to emigrate:

            Does that mean these “Palestinians” are usurpers too?!…

            As for going back, why would 2nd, 3rd and sometimes even 4th generation Israelis go back to the same Arab lands where they were kicked out from?!… And, what makes you think that 2nd, 3rd and sometimes even 4th generation Israelis would be welcomed to their former countries?!…

            Indeed, what makes you think that such an option even exists?!… 2nd, 3rd and sometimes even 4th generation Israelis have intermarried among themselves… The result being that, today, there are practically no “Polish”, “German”, “Moroccan” etc Jews…

            • Your logic is identical to that used by the crusaders.

              The crusaders that did not return to Europe eventually assimilated and lived at peace with the indigenous population.

              The same fate awaits the “Jewish” usurpers.

  3. Aletho,

    You are right! In fact, I can not recall anyone ever missing them after they left. I grew in Chicago and live in California. People wanted the troops to come home, but not the Jews from Israel to my knowledge.

    New York is a toxic slum now from the storm. The place is a tragic mess for most of the inhabitants with black mold epidemic, utilities down, and anarchy mounting from deprivation and suffering.

    Skokie is where much of Chicago’s Jewish community moved too 40 years ago. Chicago itself is under the Zionist control with Israeli Mossad agent Rhem Emanual now the cities mayor. The police department has always been brutal thugs, more like gangsters, who have been militarized like police forces throughout the country, and I fear the IDF (Israeli “Defense” Force) being brought in as NATO allies as death squads to clear neighborhoods to waves of Israelis to occupy.

    Things are so bad, that we have to look at what would be a “worst case scenario” for doing less would be living in denial of the nature of the beast. I would not want to feed them ideas, but doubt anyone could possibly surpass them in that area. The use of DU in Gaza, alone proves now criminal insane the Israelis are. And of course that includes the Obama administration in-spite of its theatrics with US-Israeli dual citizen Netanyahu. They have nuclear delivery systems and could hit Russia to instigate a counter-attack against the United States, “to bring down the whole world with them” the threat made by a senior Israeli for public consumption. Being unsure which madman said it, I have to leave it at that. If anyone can source that, it was in an Arizona newspaper about a decade ago.

  4. The Samson Option is Israel’s deterrence strategy of massive retaliation of world destruction with nuclear weapons as a “last resort” against nations whose military attacks threaten its existence, and against most major world capitals, regardless of alliance.

    According to United States journalist Seymour Hersh and Israeli historian Avner Cohen, Israeli leaders like David Ben-Gurion, Shimon Peres, Levi Eshkol and Moshe Dayan coined the phrase in the mid-1960s.

    n the 1973 Yom Kippur War, Arab forces were overwhelming Israeli forces and Prime Minister Golda Meir authorized a nuclear alert and ordered 13 atomic bombs be readied for use by missiles and aircraft. The Israeli Ambassador warned President Nixon of “very serious conclusions” if the United States did not airlift supplies. Nixon complied. This is seen as the first threat of the use of the Samson Option

    In 2002, the Los Angeles Times published an opinion piece by Louisiana State University professor David Perlmutter which has been seen as justifying a Samson Option approach[29]:

    In 2002, the Los Angeles Times published an opinion piece by Louisiana State University professor David Perlmutter which has been seen as justifying a Samson Option approach[29]:

    Israel has been building nuclear weapons for 30 years. The Jews understand what passive and powerless acceptance of doom has meant for them in the past, and they have ensured against it. Masada was not an example to follow—it hurt the Romans not a whit, but Samson in Gaza? What would serve the Jew-hating world better in repayment for thousands of years of massacres but a Nuclear Winter. Or invite all those tut-tutting European statesmen and peace activists to join us in the ovens? For the first time in history, a people facing extermination while the world either cackles or looks away—unlike the Armenians, Tibetans, World War II European Jews or Rwandans—have the power to destroy the world. The ultimate justice?[30]

    In 2003, Martin van Creveld thought that the Al-Aqsa Intifada then in progress threatened Israel’s existence.[31] Van Creveld was quoted in David Hirst’s “The Gun and the Olive Branch” (2003) as saying:

    We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force. Let me quote General Moshe Dayan: ‘Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother.’ I consider it all hopeless at this point. We shall have to try to prevent things from coming to that, if at all possible. Our armed forces, however, are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.[32]

    Ron Rosenbaum writes in his 2012 book How the End Begins: The Road to a Nuclear World War III that in the “aftermath of a second Holocaust” Israel’s surviving Dolphin-class nuclear missile submarines would retaliate not only against Israel’s attackers, but “bring down the pillars of the world (attack Moscow and European capitals for instance)” as well as the “holy places of Islam.” He writes that “abandonment of proportionality is the essence” of the Samson Option.[33]
