A good article, as it has a strong human touch, and the feeling and emotions of these people are described vividly. But politically it's an outrage, these people must leave Israel, properly compensated or become citizens with an oath of allegiance. And still there's this nagging feeling - why don't they emigrate to Syria if this is their homeland? Or they are waiting to liberated by an honourable Syrian army? But then they're a security threat, and must be trated as such. Of course they prefer to be where money is good? Final thing - the whole country and Knesset were shocked when a group of Russian-speaking Nazis was arrested here, Shitrit even demanded to change the Law of Return ( while majority of Russians are loyal citizens opf Israel, and do the military service). After this article there must be an outrage too, but will there be one?
