Anglo-oleh warns potential olim: Israeli failings are hurting their end of the aliya proposition

Having immigrated to Israel 10-years ago from South Africa, 25-year-old Adam Segal exposes the harsh economic realities of moving to live and work in modern Israel.

Israel ain't what it used to be
in JPost.com


This land that we call home needs to be more than a mere ideological vision; I need to be able to afford to live here.


The average Israeli cannot afford to live in an average household.

Ten years ago, the people pushing hardest for me to come to Israel were the Zionist Federation and the Jewish Agency, despite their knowledge that many olim would not learn fluent Hebrew, and that many would be unemployed for months or even years. Many immigrants do not survive in their professions due to over-saturation, protektsia (connections), or language issues. Many immigrant children drop out of school, develop behavioral problems and, due to the elitist nature of the education system, may not get a university- level education. And still, the recommendation from the shaliach is the same: “Come home to Israel.” . . .

I call on the Jewish Agency to get involved in the housing crisis and create feasible solutions for the people who gave up everything to be here. Zionism will not pay the bills or put food on my table, and it definitely won’t provide me with the capital I need to house my family in the land that is supposedly my home. If you ask me to choose between Zionism and the well-being of my family, I will choose my family. They are my responsibility.  Keeping me here is yours.

"As Christians, it is our duty to stand-up to defend Jews, Israel & America from sharia," says Eric Jones at Pro-Constitution Rally in Dearborn



Christian, Eric Jones, stands alone to rally defense of Jews and Israel against the leftist and Muslim anti-Zionists in Dearborn, Michigan on Friday 17 June 2011.

Rabbi Nahum Shifren and Pastor Terry Jones advocate to Arab-Americans to observe American values & overcome anti-Zionism; Leftist-organized Muslims and Blacks taunt,"Send Jews back to Auschwitz!" Cops enable angry mob to thwart visit

Rabbi Nachum Shifren joined Pastor Terry Jones and Pastor Wayne Sass to draw attention to the bigotry of Muslim supremacism over Americanism - evident in large Muslim population areas around the world, such as America's largest Muslim community, in Dearborn, Michigan.



Left-wing activist organizers, By Any Means Necessary ("BAMN"), roused an aggressive protest to the No-Sharia for Americans Rally and absent adequate police protection for Pastor Terry Jones, physically impeded his contingent's march to the Arab Festival.



BAMN seemed to mis-interpret the political nature of the No-Sharia Rally, to rally opposition by accusing Pastor Jones and Rabbi Shifren of racism. See their flyer ALL OUT to Protect and Keep Safe the Arab and Muslim community!

The Muslim and Black protestors, however, readily exposed latent anti-Semitism within Muslim and Black cultures, swearing vulgarities at Rabbi Shifren, and cat-calling for him to "Go back to Auschwitz with the rest of your 6 million fucking Jews," belying BAMN's leftist, rally-organizer, Donna Stern's "anti-racism" mantra.



The martinet Dearborn Police, who chided me on the street for taking a still photograph (and who can be seen in the video with riot-gear clad officers) notably under-protected Pastor Jones' contingent as they attempted to walk to the Arab Festival. The BAMN mob were not prevented from getting directly in Pastor Jones' face, confronting him with signs and blaring megaphones.

Detroit-area radio-host, Phil Stargell, was offended by the police's kid-glove handling of the aggressive protestors, as he explains in this exclusive video:

NYC's "Jerusalem: United Forever" concert/rally delivers strong Zionist message: "The Land of Israel belongs to the Jews by right; Keep Jews in Jerusalem, Judea, & Samaria united under Israeli rule

Pro-Zionists rallying at NYC's Rally with a Message in Central Park cheered the Republican Presidential contender, Herman Caine, who resonated with their concerns about Pres. Barack Hussein Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's plans to acquiesce to Palestinian demands to ethnically cleanse pious Jewish communities from Judea and Samaria.


Mr. Caine, who topped Fox News' poll following last-month's Republican Candidates' Debate, joined notable Zionistic speakers who addressed the gathered audience of thousands for the 18th annual, pro-Zionist, "Concert with a Message" in Central Park- organized by Dr. Joe Frager and Dr. Paul Brody on June 5, 2011.

Marking the occasion of the 34th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, Israeli Member of Knesset, Danny Danon, head of the Likud Int'l movement, sent Pres. Barack Hussein Obama this message through the media - "Take your hands off the Old City. Take your hands off the Temple Mount & the Western Wall. We will continue to build the communities in Judea and Samaria. We will make sure that all the Jews will remain there. ... Come to live in Israel. We will make sure that the Jews will be able to live all over The Land of Israel."




Rabbi David Algaze of Queens synagogue Havurat Yisrael, tells Jews that Pres. Obama, while bending-over backwards to 'respect' Islam, cares not a twit about disrespecting the Bible in which he entrusts guardianship of His holy lands - Judea, Samaria, and Israel/Palestine - to the Jewish nation. He reminded those concerned that the land of Israel belongs to the Jewish people, and not to politicians or government- and Jews live in Judea and Samaria by rights, and not merely to maintain security.



Rabbi David Algaze accuses Obama's Administration of flouting the Jewish Bible, disrespecting Jews and Zionism, in his pursuit for 'respect' for Islam.

Menachem Begin Center commemorates today's 30-year anniversary of the Israel Air Force strike on Saddam Hussein’s Osirak nuclear reactor; Watch "Raid on the Reactor"

Joshua Hamerman, in The Jerusalem Post, describes the commemoration held at Jerusalem's Menachem Begin Heritage Center to unveil an exhibit about the June 7, 1981 raid on Saddam Hussein’s nuclear reactor in Iraq.
Code-named Operation Opera, the mission required IAF planes to fly more than 1,600 kilometers across Jordanian, Saudi and Iraqi airspace, and success was not assured. Prime Minister Begin gave the order despite opposition from then- Deputy Prime Minister Yigal Yadin, Minister of Interior Affairs Yosef Burg, Mossad chief Yitzhak Hofi, military intelligence head Maj.-Gen. Yehoshua Saguy, opposition leader Shimon Peres and others.

Meridor noted that exactly 44 years ago, he was fighting in a tank division during the Six Day War, when Israel’s military might was at its peak intensity for the time.

Some of Israel’s enemies, such as Egypt, came to accept the existence of Israel and chose peace, said Meridor, while Iraq did not, pursuing nuclear weapons because it knew Israel could not be defeated on the battlefield.

We must identify opportunities to make smart decisions that require courage and vision,” said Meridor, who praised the decision to bomb Osirak as well as Begin’s pursuit of the peace treaty with Egypt. “Begin was such a leader. He was unique.”

After the raid, Begin stated that Israel would never allow its enemies to acquire weapons of mass destruction, a concept that later became known as the “Begin Doctrine.” The doctrine is the backbone of the argument for a preemptive military strike against Iran. Israel also reportedly bombed a nuclear reactor in Syria in September 2007.
