Will Bad Economy + Obama= Aliyah Surge?

An interesting result of the recent victory by Barack Obama and the global economic slowdown maybe a potential surge in North American Aliyah. Let's face it, if you are Jewish and you have little job security, or no longer even have a job, why stay in the US? Why not make Aliyah with Nefesh B'Nefesh?

Even though Israeli is likely to experience an economic slowdown as well, we are still talking about 1-2% growth, compared to negative growth in the US. I have many friends who were always fence sitters re: Aliyah, but they have told me that over the last month or two they have really starting thinking about taking the big step.

I have helped counsel, financially, many olim and the fact is that with some proper planning, you can actually be ahead of the game financially living in the holy land. Keep in mind that while salaries maybe lower, the cost of education is a joke compared with sending your kids to Jewish schools in the US.

Maybe now is the time for you to make Aliyah?

Why blame Aliya Jews collapsing USA by moving money to India? Carolignian Brzezinski spawned Zia al Haq, Khomeini, and bin Laden - breaks up superpowers via Aztlan and Kosovo as per Joel Garreau's Nine Nations. Brzezinski, Buckley and Buchanan winked anti-Semitic votes for Obama, delivered USA to Pope's feudal basket of Bamana Republics. Michael Pfleger and Joe Biden prove Obama is the Pope's boy. Talal got Pontifical medal as Fatima mandates Catholic-Muslim union against Jews (Francis Johnson, Great Sign, 1979, p. 126), Catholic Roger Taney wrote Dred Scott decision. John Wilkes Booth, Tammany Hall and Joe McCarthy were Catholics. Now Catholic majority Supreme Court. NYC top drop outs: Hispanic 32%, Black 25%, Italian 20%. NYC top illegals: Ecuadorean, Italian, Polish. Ate glis-glis but blamed plague on others, now lettuce coli. Their bigotry most encouraged terror yet they reap most security funds. Rabbi circumcizes lower, Pope upper brain. Tort explosion by glib casuistry. Bazelya 1992 case proves PLO-IRA-KLA links.
