Nothing appearing in Haaretz has changed any of Choni's attitudes over the years. Regardless of its logic, the call to all Jews to come to Israel is repeated over and over. Come home to land and God or die! OK Choni, let's go for it - everybody comes. Where are you going to put them, and how are you going to water and feed them? Lots will be old people in need of expensive medical care. Will they bring their Medicare with them? What if the young ones want to spend their lives studying the Torah and Talmud? Got the resources to accomodate them? After they all come, suppose really unfriendly hard-liners take over Pakistan and so take control of its nuclear weapons. Would it really be desirable to have world Jewery concentrated in one small geographic area?
