    An Israeli also made a similar suggestion to me, that if there was an influx of European Jews it would reverse the extremist trends that are becoming the norm in Israel and hopefully lead to a 2-state peace agreement. What Israelis like this fail to realise is that (1) if Israel wants to destroy its moral core and even find itself ultimately subsumed into a single bi-national state why should the burden of saving it have to fall on diaspora Jews (2) the Israelis that are leaving the country are more likely to be those who oppose the country's religious extremists and ultra-nationalists. Why not first address the problems that are causing these people to leave.
