Russians Leave Israel
By Micah Halpern
Israel granted refugee status and citizenship to about 6,000 Russian Jews. they were obviously also granted the Right of Return.
As refugees, these new Israelis receive even more benefits than those granted to a simple oleh or Jewish immigrant.
These 6,000 Russians were granted the same refugee status as Ukrainians who were truly escaping for their lives. The Russian Jews were not escaping. But they lived with the fear that they may be targeted in Russia simply because they are Jews.
Now, 2 months since the invasion into Ukraine and the arrival of Russian refugees to Israel – 1,800 of these Russians have returned to Russia with their new Israeli citizenship plus the cash and other benefits given them by the Jewish State.
As you rightly imagine, Israel is not pleased. The Israeli government, you could say, is livid.
The Russians all flew back on either El Al or Israir. They are the only airlines that fly from Tel Aviv to Russia and the tickets are extremely expensive. Not to mention that the flights from Moscow to Tel Aviv were paid for by Israeli taxpayers.
These 1800 people are clearly not refugees … that is obvious by their return.
They exploited Israel to get an Israeli passport - a passport that is more respected in the Western world than a Russian passport.
