Israeli Official Reveals Reason behind Slowing down of American Migration to Israel

Palestine Chronicle | August 10, 2020

An Israeli official revealed on Monday the reason behind the slowness of immigration applications of Americans wishing to move to Israel.

According to the head of the immigration department at the Jewish Agency, Shay Felber, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has instituted a new policy on Americans wishing to migrate to Israel in the last few months.

“Every adult applying to immigrate to Israel from the United States is required to undergo an FBI background check, and an apostille –international notary certification – must be attached to the document that confirms that the applicant has no criminal record,” Felber was quoted by the Israeli daily Haaretz as saying.

In the last ten years, immigrants to Israel from North America have been exempted from this background check. This rule did not apply to immigrants from other parts of the world. But recently things have changed.

“Three months ago … the Interior Ministry announced that it was suspending the long-standing agreement that had allowed for the United States to be exempt,” Haaretz reported.

While Israeli officials have not revealed the reason behind the US decision, one possibility is that Americans with criminal records used their migration to Israel as an opportunity to escape the law.

“All documents required for aliyah (Jews moving to Israel), such as birth and marriage certificates, as well as proof of one’s Jewish background, must be apostilled,” Haaretz reported.

“But except for the case of FBI background checks .. the process is usually very quick. Obtaining apostilles for criminal background checks in countries other than the United States was also relatively simple.”

The Israeli official has also said that the Jewish Agency is working with the US to reduce the waiting period and to smooth out the migration process following the FBI’s decision.

“Felber told the Knesset Committee for Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs that Israel had in recent weeks submitted a proposal to the FBI that would dramatically speed up the process,” Haaretz reported.

  1. “Three months ago … the Interior Ministry announced that it was suspending the long-standing agreement that had allowed for the United States to be exempt,” Haaretz reported”.

    It is WAY overdue for the USA to disallow Dual Passport holders in the American Government as well. It is outrageous that people with “Dual Loyalties” have flooded the American Government. Israel does not allow Dual Passport holders in the Knesset, but the USA has lost its Sovereignty, because it does allow them in Washington.
    Wake up America. Take your country back, from these “Aliens”…..and don’t let the label, “Anti-Semite” cower you, just be “Pro American”……

  2. The first comment deserves a “Bravo!” and certainly has that from me.

    There must be no more Jewish/American criminals escaping prosecution by fleeing to Israel. Those who have already gone, stay there. It deserves them and they deserve Israel.

    Those criminals who have inflicted harm on America, by their actions on Israel’s behalf, I say, “No more!” If their actions are criminal here, let them be prosecuted for the crimes.

    It’s enough that the dual citizens, American/Israeli citizenship, it’s enough that there are elected officials in Congress whose first priority is something such as the vile Ms. Lowey, as she said to give money to Israel. All of them are traitors to America.

    They serve a foreign government. Again, they are traitors.

    Israel is not an ally to America. It and its minions are the opposite

  3. Good comments above. I’m not sure I understand the implications of this “new policy.” Surely, this report points to vigorous and expedited efforts to “smooth…the process.” I also can’t figure, if the US FBI initiated the change, why …”the [Zioentity’s?–the US doesn’t have an “Interior Ministry”] Interior Ministry announced that it was suspending the long-standing agreement….” Who’s driving the train? — I suspect it’s the Zioentity, of course, as always, here avid to emasculate any deleterious effect on any Jew/Zio.

  4. Immigration to the entity has fallen right off in recent years. It may be that there are some decent people who don’t fancy living among genocidal megalomaniacs who imagine that they are the master race.
