Could you even begin to imagine the prospect of suddenly being forced to evacuate your cosy apartment, leave your community and cosy little job for a"n uncertain future?." Well, I'm a recent oleh, so I can imagine leaving my community for an uncertain future. However, in my decision, I didn't voluntarily move past the Green Line, to an area that I knew the government always said was negotiable according to UN Resolution 181 and UNSCR 242. I didn't decide to be one of 8,000 people controlling 20% of a small region with more than a million people. I didn't suck down the tax dollars of ordinary Israelis so that I could either a) follow my religious fanaticism or b) live cheaply in a large house on the beach while my neighbors are crammed into apartments. Most importantly, I wasn't offered $150,000 to $400,000 more in tax dollars in order to make my move easier. I had some sympathy for them, before they tried to stop democracy.
