    I came for the UK like the man in the picture, but I'm secular 40 years ago . He,and many other of the Anglo immigrants are religious. They go and live in the territories. Cause trouble to the local inhabitants, and contribute nothing to the advancement of making Israel a modern multi cultural state. What Israel has always dreamed of since its inception. Is a vast influx of Jews from the English speaking countries, who are mainly secular. The amount of American & Canadian Jews in Israel stands at around 200,000. This out of a N.American population of some 6 million. Can you blame them. Why should they give up their largely comfortable lives. To live in a country that is torn by strife, both internally and externally. By the end of this century about half of those US Jews will have been lost. We must make peace with justice for both sides. Otherwise eventually all the diaspora Jews will be GONE.
