    Zeev - in response to your questions, these highly ideological people, who only live their because it is the biblical homeland, have for some reason extorted massive tax breaks from the government, which means that the overwhelming majority pay little or no tax at all. If you take an average of 5 people in a family, it means that each family has been subsidized by about $250,000. Now just think what Israel would look like if that had been distributed equally, or given to those that need it or used to develop desalination plants. instead we have Givat Ochlim al gav hamedina, Chaim alheshbonchem and other wonderful assets
