they were Zionists. Most who came to Palestine were "pushed" to it, and not "pulled" by it. Nonetheless, I cannot blame poor Jews who leave in order to be able to make a living. Indeed, even Jewish law states that one can only leave if (a) they cannot make their bread in Israel, or (b) they cannot study Torah by the powers that be. But those who leave just because they can "advance their careers" or because life in Israel is fraught with many serious frustrations.

In the final analysis, the country will belong to those who love it enough to stay and tough it out. Israel is tiny and will never be able to compete with the likes of America or even Germany for those who desire big mansions and such.
