Such a long article and very few facts. Understandably, since as far as I can ascertain there are no precise figures for any of this. Officially, an emigrant from Israel is one who has been out of the country for over two years, (half a million) and as so many Israelis go abroad to study, or on a contract for a few years, this means nothing at all. That those already abroad (the real subject of the article) waver, is obvious. As for the observation (not more than that, therefore) that the majority of those who leave are of Ashkenazi origin, and more highly educated, this too is patently the case - the others would have no chance of either residence permits of work. The article therefore proves nothing but that people quizzed in such 'enquiries' (those relating to sensitive subjects) rarely speak frankly, but underlines the fact that if the country continues as at present (constant warfare, limited economic opportunities, and - not mentioned in the article- a geopolitical environment chronically unstable,) emigration of young, talented Israelis is bound to increase.
