    doesn't make it a "state secret". The number of Israelis outside the country are precisely known and they number slightly over a million. The difficulty that the Israeli dream entails is not for everybody, but having just lived in Israel for the past 3 months (I was involved in a high-tech startup), I can tell you that Israel is not anywhere near "imploding". The social problems are solvable and I personally met many of the people who are working towards this goal, as well as many others (such as programs for universal high-tech education, employment training for the ultra-orthodox, political activism / youth parliaments, etc). Like many young Jews, I am well aware that there are many (like you) who desire to see Israel fail, whatever that entails. But there are many like me with a positive outlook and the will to work hard - and this, I believe, is far more powerful than the former. To see the positive in any situation ("make the desert bloom") - that will carry us through.
