    You forgot to add that these Iraqis who left Iraq were refugees from an invasion gone wrong by US (and its putative coalition headlined by Blair the puddle). In addition to the ones who were "allowed" to settle in syria and jordan (usually only the ones with family, means and skills) there are another almost 1 M refugees at the borders who live in abject misery, with nowhere to go. Total number of refugees generated by the mindless, failed oil grabbing barrons of the Bush white house are estimated at over 4 M and growing. If you did not include Kurdistan and the pure shiite areas of the south, you'd find that well over ONE HALF of the Iraqis were displaced and become refugees, in addition to the 1/2 M + who were killed and murdered. many of those were palestinians who happened to live in Iraq. Now, for you Chick, this is all a cause for celebration, and these are the very techniques you'd like to see emulated by Israel. The so-called "quiet" migration of Iraqis was anything but quiet.

For French teen studying in Israel, it's all about being a Jew among Jews

Arrivals / Departures: Anti-Semitism in France is certainly not the reason why this teen chose to come to Israel; an Israeli whose relatives perished in the Holocaust finds living in Berlin 'perfectly fine.'
