Germany Angers Israel By Being Too Hospitable To Jews

Germany has bowed to the demands of Israel to become less hospitable to Jews.

Jewish Agency officials hailed as a positive first step media reports Saturday that Germany will stop offering unlimited immigration and generous social benefits to Jews from the former Soviet Union. According to the German media, starting in January 2006 only FSU Jews who are under the age of 45 and familiar with the German language will be eligible to immigrate.

Oh the irony.

I don't believe the US offers welfare benefits to FSU emigrants.

Just opportunities.

A language requirement and an age requirement. Interesting.

Generally the US should limit immigration to people under 40. There should be exceptions for say prominent scientists, however.
