Emigration to Israel doubles in five years

The number of Dutch people emigrating to Israel doubled over the last five years and was back over the 400 mark in 2007, reports the Volkskrant on Friday, quoting figures from the national statistics office CBS.

The number of emigrants to Israel was more or less stable at around 400 from 1995 to 1998. After reaching a low point of 216 in 2002, the figures started climbing again, reaching 423 last year, the paper says.
