    Why the confusion? The left wing and secular Jews would never come live here. They like the idea of Israel, but they have no love for the land or the true meaning of being a Jew. They like their BMW's and their bacon, lobsters and shrimps too much to even think of coming here. Many that I know think that Israel is a place with donkeys and camels walking all over, and that we are in a constant state of war. Many have also told me they are afraid to come here because they have family and business responsibilities and they believe the pictures from the news and really think it's just a constant war. I am being very serious. Friends and family of mine are AFRAID to even visit here, let alone move here. They still think people get blown up on buses every day. Thank G-d for the "right wing" that you call it that has been able to stop this for the most part for the past few years, but MANY American Jews still think it is dangerous here, and what would happen to their families and their business if they were blown up? Even the ones who come would never leave behind their cushy lives and tough it out here. Liberals like to talk big and tell us how to live, but when it comes to walking to walk, forget it, it will never happen. Obviously there are exceptions, but as this article clear states the ONLY ones who will come here are right-leaning people, and that will never change, so again, why the confusion? It's very simple.
