    An ever shrinking minority in Israel (GOD'S WILL BE DONE). As far as the thugs and airheads, they are truly that. I think that religious study including history and political science is sorely lacking and it does turn many middle eastern jews into airheads, vain and self-involved. I have no doubt I would have turned out that way if my parents raised me in Israel and not in America. Eshkanoozim are truly difficult to accept, because they are the most radical of all jews, causing untold and unknown harm to the entire nation. Yes, they outnumber mizrachim in the world, but not in Israel. The one certainty about them is that they are more likely to intermarry and disappear into other nations in a very short period of time, one or two generations is all it will take.
