    but all the other horrible events that came before it. And also alot of Jews are secular and likely to absorb or marry out, thus decrease the population. Neither do Jews want to walk around feeling unsafe for being Jews, or ridiculed for their culture or harrassed by proseletyzers either. So hence its a variety of reasons including the Holocaust, which was indeed the last straw, but dont forget all the other stuff that came before it, the pogroms,blood libels etc, and random acts of anti semitism, not to mention Arab expulsion of Mizrachi/Maghrebi Jews whom now constitute a high percentage of Israels Sabra population :-)
