Over 50% of young singles that make Aliya through either group from the West leave Israel within 5 years. That should be the main scandal. Who cares how much money is spent to get them here, if we can't retain them. NBN lies to people saying that their retention rate is 97%, utter nonsense. Most who go back to the USA don't call up NBN and say "goodbye", they have no idea about the horrible rate of flight. Israeli Governemnt money should be spent on organizations that help retain people in Israel. But don't give a shekel to the Jewish Agency's ConnecTLV, they are even worse than NBN. More private organizations should be supported, run by passionate people that aren't paid American salaries.
