As a Jew and especially as a Rabbi it should be clear to you that Israel is your home and where you belong. It is unfortunate that it required a demeaning situation for you to realize this. Please make yourself an example for the other Jews in Iraq and around the world and speak of the importance of Aliya - not just to run from trouble, but on the positive side, to come home and do your part to build your country, to bring the final Redemption. Kol Hakavod to you. May many more of our family return home.
