Jews often lament the holocaust and imagine how different the Jewish population of the world would be today had it not happened. They don't take into account that a lot of Jews saw what was coming in Europe and made every possible effort to leave ahead of the war. Had that not happened, there would be a lot fewer Jews in the world today. There are some similarities between Israel today and Europe of the 1930's. The threat to the Jews is there, even if the means to enact it are not (yet). Still, Israel is potentially the deadliest place on earth in the near future. Israel's predictions of a "second holocaust" may ultimately become a self fulfilling prophesy. Individual Israelis have their own lives and their own futures to consider, just as those that fled Europe did.
