If you have a foreign (European) passport, use it and go. I left Israel, where I earned just enough to make it through the month (but not enough to pay off debts). Now, I live and work in the UK, where I make much more and my wife found a part time job as well (she didn't find a job in Israel even though she spent years trying), and our combined monthly income simply doubled. Life here may be a bit more expensive, but not that much, and I for sure did the right thing.
