    Apparently Rogel is “not leaving” at present since there is not another place on the planet that meets his vision and exacts so little of a price for just the sake of being.

  2. David says:

    Stay or leave, whatever…. I LOVE LIVING HERE! Sure, my Israel isn’t exactly perfect to me, but it is so much more wonderful than anywhere else. What would make it better, some may ask? Well…maybe…it would be better if some individuals did leave. I’d be willing to try this out if they are.
