Moving to Israel

NPR's Madeline Brand reports on the growing number of immigrants to Israel. The Israeli government provides tax breaks and cash incentives, especially for those moving into settlements in the occupied territories. Some Americans who are planning to move say the hardest part won't be dealing with the threat of violence, but rather it will be living their entire lives as a statement of what they believe. (5:37)
