33% of Israelis thinking of reverse migration
An opinion poll shows a large number of Israelis are unoptimistic about their future, with many challenges worrying them.
A report by Israeli journalist Noam Dvir for Israel Hayom revealed that Israelis are "concerned by societal rifts" and the "rising cost of living", according to a poll by the "Pnima movement", which is working on addressing the rifts in Israeli society.
According to the report, around one-third of Israelis (35%) said the occupation is not treating "bereaved families" properly, adding that 60% of Israelis aged 29 and under were of that opinion.
Rising cost of living
The poll's findings show that 33% of Israelis have thought of reverse migration over the last year. 66% of Israelis aged between 18 and 24 said they were thinking about leaving, compared to 53% of Israelis aged between 25 and 34.
As for the issues behind their thinking of moving, 40% said the reason was the high cost of living, 22% cited the security situation, and 18% said societal rifts. 43% of Israelis living in "Tel Aviv" said they were most concerned by the rising cost of living, while those living in occupied Al-Quds said they were concerned by societal rifts.
"Israel" will destroy itself
The former Minister of Internal Security of the Israeli occupation, Avigdor Kahalani, stressed on Saturday that he fears the fate of "Israel" after one generation, adding that "internal problems will destroy it."
Kahalani said in a cultural seminar with journalist Roi Katz in occupied Bir Sabe' that "Israel" is not prepared for what is to come, and in ten years, the situation will be worse.
He mentioned that the guns aimed at Iran must first be directed to the inside, i.e. at "Israel" because today it is deteriorating, expecting pedestrians to start holding guns, according to the former Minister.
Kahalani stressed that the political circle in "Israel" is thinking of its narrow interests only and that every party thinks of ending its mandate peacefully. He believes that the government is so preoccupied with its survival that the long-term plans are neglected, expressing worry for the fate of "Israel".
