    NBN's taking credit for the increase in Aliyah from North America from only 1,653 Olim in 2001, the year before the founding of NBN, which also happened to be the height of the 2nd intifada, to over 3,980 Olim making Aliyah via NBN in 2010, (NBN interestingly doesn't give the number of Olim in 2002 - probably because it was a small increase over those coming in 2001 and the 2010 number is much larger and more impressive) is a classic example of NBN taking credit for something underserved by them. They then claim to have helped 33,000 olim make aliya since their inception which was 10 years ago which means they average about 3,300 olim per year and use the number of olim from 2010 of 3,980 to claim that they more than doubled the number of annual olim from before they existed which again was due to the 2nd intifada. I would like to see a breakdown of olim by year not only for every since their inception but also for every year in the 90's as well so we can compare and see what increases NBN has really made.
