Arab media have been celebrating the results of a survey released yesterday that showed that 27% of the Jewish population in Israel would leave the country if given the opportunity.

Among secular Jews the percentage who would leave is 36% while among the religious it is 7%.

I don't have the actual survey questions so I can't comment on how it might have been understood by the respondents. The survey was commissioned by Masa Israel, which is trying to strengthen the connections between Jews and Israel.

But while the Arab media has been emphasizing that poll, for the most part they have been ignoring another press release from yesterday, showing that Israel ranks 11th worldwide in the "happiness index."

Israel ranks higher in happiness than nearly every country that Israelis are known to like to emigrate to, like the US, UK, France and Germany. (Canada and Australia are the major exceptions.)

So putting the two surveys together, it sounds like many Israelis would want to leave - if they could find somewhere that is significantly better.

Meanwhile, Palestinian Arabs are leaving by the tens of thousands every year.

And if you compare the happiness of Israelis against her neighbors, well, there is no contest.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
