Median Jewish Aliyah

Median Jews in the Middle East lead a precarious existence as oppressed and in Iran persecuted minorities. The opportunity to immigrate to Israel will be welcomed by nearly all Median Jews in the Middle East. Remaining in their current countries of residence is certainly not an attractive prospect. It is impossible to say in advance how fast Median Jewry of the Middle East will relocate to Israel but what is certain is that virtually all will eventually do so. Furthermore, the standard of living is much higher in Israel than in other countries in the Middle East and the economic incentive will certainly contribute to the attraction of Aliyah (immigration to Israel). In fact, Israel is now ranked as one of the 20 most economically developed countries in the world. Remaining as oppressed minorities in Muslim societies will in practice not be an option for Median Jews in the Middle East.
