'In any case, they seem to be as reluctant as the Iranian Jews to go to Israel in spite of attractive incentives' Very few Jews have ever emigrated to Israel if they had a good alternative. Look up how many Jews have emigrated to Israel from the US -- or any country where they were economically secure and not subject to persecution. By and large, Jews have only gone to Israel when they have had no choice. This absence of choice has often been engineered by the Zionists themselves. In particular, see the 1947-48 influx into Palestine and the exodus of Soviet Jewry in the Seventies. In both cases, steps were taken to prevent entry into the United States or anywhere else -- except Israel.
