Legal Immigrants from America
Most American bloggers spend an enormous effort in protesting the massive foreign invasion of their country. Millions and millions of illegal brown skinned illegals are squeezing out Americans from their jobs and neighborhoods, they say. It is definitely not my problem and I am a bit skeptical if it is a problem at all since America has full employment, there is no real unemployment, and the country is the most prosperous one on Earth, there was never such a rich and happy country ever. In my opinion, it is excellently governed (just compare it with any country from Afganistan to Zimbabwe) and leading in every technological and scientific field. A paradise. They don't know how good they have it. And having grown up in Latin America, I am very fond of Latin culture and people. Vargas Llosa's Pantaleon y las Visitadoras is the best satire I ever read, I enjoyed it so much that now it is physically impossible for me to agree with Steve Sailer and Dennis Mangan's lack of love of Latins.
What I am leading to is that at least in the matter of Jewish immigration, they can be relaxed. There are a number of very salient Israelis who made good in America, but the numbers show an increasing trend of Jews leaving America for Israel. A 33-year high in immigration from North America is expected in 2007, with some 3,500 Americans and Canadians expected to move to Israel this year, according to a report released by Nefesh B'Nefesh. This year's forecast represents a 10 percent jump from the 3,200 North Americans who immigrated last year. Most are under 35 years old. The trend is very clear. Count Gregory Potemkin, empress Catherine the Great's minister, better known for his fake villages, prophesied that the "problem" of Russia's Jews will be solved by one third assimilating and dissolving within his immense country's body of human mass, one third will emigrate, and one third will be destroyed. Two hundred years after, it is so clear that more than antisemitic he was prescient. I hope American Jews will not suffer the same fate. The pics are from the airport.
