    When someone says that 700k israelis have left israel, it is important to understand the statistics. 1. It is natural, that in a country with high immigration, a certain % will not adapt and leave after a short time. But since those leaving do get automatic citizenship, they will by default be counted as expat Israelis. For example: if a Bosnian came to Switzerland and lived there 10 years, but did not get citizenship, after returning to Bosnia he will NOT be counted as an expat Swiss. The russian jew WILL be counted as an expat Israeli. 2. 700K also includs arab israelis, not only jews! 3. 700k also includes unaccounted people who have died since, thus the figure is lower, around 600k (IL Central Bureau of Statistics). 4. 600K is the amount of expat Swiss, a rich country with the same pop. size as IL. 5. Migration in search for opportunity (work, health, marriage, etc) is normal and does NOT imply ideological emigration.
