    Isn't the purpose of the State of Israel to protect Jewish imnigrants from discrimination based on nationality and descent? Why bother having a State of Israel if you are going to discriminate against a certain group of Jews? Israeli banks froze the accounts of dual US-Israeli citizens. Isn't that a crime against the State? Is Israel going to allow a foreign country to invade it's sovereignty to steal their citizens assets the way the Nazis did? It's the exact same thing. If Israel was in existence before WWII and the German government asked the Israeli government to hand over the assets of German-Israelis, would the Israeli government have done that? I am a US citizen whose eyes are wide open. I will not make Aliyah because this FATCA thing has proven the State of Israel to be a joke.
