    It's high time to amend the laws to become citizens. All too many olim come here for the convenience, and not a thought of loyalty. In the States, and I believe in other countries, there is a grace period of 5 to 7 years, giving the future citizen to become knowledgable in the language (very important), and the history and and pure loyalty to your newly adopted country. There are exams before the people are granted citizenship, and it's a proud moment. To provide shelter for any others, with all the help, isn't fair, while they complain of not speaking or understanding. When an elderly person requests help in Russian, that's fine, but there are many who ask if you speak their language, living in their old surroundings in a new country, and demanding all, and complaining about the culture and quality of life here. The entire country suffers from they burden they put upon everyone else.
