Why Do A Third of Israelis Want To Leave The Country?

A third of Jewish Israelis would leave the country if they could, according to a poll conducted by Masa Israeli, a group looking at the divisions of Jewish society in Israel.

It found that secular Jews were the most likely to want to immigrate, with 36% saying they would leave the country if they could. Orthodox Jews were the least likely to want to immigrate; only 7% said they would leave.

The poll, which was reported by the Walla! news site, found that while 44% of secular Jewish Israelis identify as Israelis foremost, 83% of traditional and 90% of religious Jewish Israelis identify as Jews foremost.

The poll was conducted ahead of a conference called the “Israeli Journey to Change” in the Knesset which is looking for common ground in Israel.

“The survey data indicates a problem with a sense of identity, connection and belonging to the people, to the land and to the state among a growing part of society in Israel and that reality already has created a rift and split in all of Israeli society,” said Masa Israeli director, Uri Cohen.

    Think you mean “emigrate”.

    You have to wipe away all the myths and government propaganda first, but when you do, you find that for most of its inhabitants, Israel is not a good place to live.

    A poor economy, dependent upon immense foreign subsidies.

    The subsidies come in many forms, but who believes subsidies continue forever? They don’t.

    An armed camp with constant tensions and fears plus the fact that any children face conscription into an occupying army.

    Prices are high, and some things, like housing, cannot be afforded by large numbers.

    Life is much, much better in other places where many Israelis can go because many are in fact dual citizens.

    You cannot live forever eating and breathing ideology. It grows tiresome to say the least.

    A government constantly driven by extremists who always hold, and will always hold, the balance of power. Israel’s ultra-Orthodox and Settlers being are cut from the same cloth as any unthinking extremist groups you care to name anywhere.

    A future declining population without new immigration, but what is there to attract numbers of immigrants? And the world pool of potential immigrants is quite tiny with only something like 15 million Jews in the entire world.

    A future growing population of Palestinians, people who, owing to their lesser economic state, have more children which is the natural pattern for populations everywhere.

    People who also must unavoidably harbor some resentment for what you have done to them, done to them owing to nothing they ever did to you.

    The need to learn a genuinely useless language in the schools, Hebrew being about as useful in the world at large as Mohawk or Welsh.

    Just living in a society heavily, heavily dominated by soldiers, security services, and police. It is in fact a garrison state not so very different than what the Crusaders established centuries ago. This is not a lot of people’s idea of a good lifestyle environment.

    Indeed. Leaving Israel is emigration. Of course, when you emigrate from one country, you usually expect to immigrate into another. I hope they don’t choose Australia. We have enough annoying arseholes here already.
