Some thoughts on Prediction

Reader comment on item: Romney vs. Obama vis-à-vis Israel
in response to reader comment: The Exodus

Submitted by Eli Modiin (United States), Sep 9, 2012 at 15:37

Not implausible, but most likely not on the grand scale. Several pathways for possible US Jewish body/brain/capital drain: (i) rich individual left a-la-France trying to safe their capital from high taxes, both income and corporate. This is of course assuming that taxes in Israel will have become lower than in the US; (ii) professionally oriented and tradition-keeping Jewish individuals left, assuming that employment situation in the US has further deteriorated; (iii) Religious Jews of national orientation left, as they are doing anyway; (iv) some of Israeli expats left for all of the above reasons. I see no chance for Democrat/Obama voting Jews leaving US for Israel - they will wait to see their Utopia dream implemented and in full blossom.
