I am thankful to the State of Israel for being there. I am thankful to the brave Israelis who have made this a reality. As a medic in the US Army in WWII, we went into six newly liberated camps where I found my mispocah--mostly dead-- few still alive. I prayed with them at age 19, for Eretz Yisrael. I was sad for the six million that might have made it if only for being born ten years too soon. I would rather be a lifelong Zionist than say Kaddish every day.

Practice what you preach
Please, do not get confused between facts and opinions. The facts are that overwhelming majority of citizens of Israel is strictly against this kind of migrations. In short get as many immigrants as you can, put in your own house and provide for them on your own. Put your money where your mouth is. Do not touch the public purse you have no right to do so.
