The X-Factor of Alevi Immigration to Israel

While Median Jewish emigration to Israel from Iran and Iraq will no doubt be rapid indeed once the gates are opened and nearly all 3-4 million Iraqi and Iranian Median Jews are highly likely to immigrate to Israel within the course of a year, Median Jewish immigration to Israel from Turkey is likely to be significantly slower due to the much higher degree of economic development in Turkey and the general state of freedom of religion in Turkey due to power of the Sabbatean-controlled Derin Devlet, Turkey’s deep state domestic intelligence apparatus. Furthermore, no one knows how many Alevis there are in Turkey. Estimates of the Alevi population range from 8 million to 25 million. What is clear however is that the vast majority of Median Jews in Turkey are Alevis. What will be the yearly rate of Alevi immigration to Israel? No one knows and it is furthermore impossible to predict or calculate.
