I do not live in Israel. But I do have a son in Israeli's military. Seems to me that I find so many expat Israelis in the US, and when I ask why they always respond: We can not live decently in Israel. That being so, to neglect domestic and social needs--as does my country under the excuse of security/defense needs--is to lose many potential soldiers, needed to defend Israel.
