Israeli expats in Berlin appeal to Merkel for help in encouraging 'aliyah' to Germany

Israeli expats in Berlin say they have appealed directly to German Chancellor Angela Merkel for thousands of work visas to accommodate the flood of Israelis who would like to immigrate, Channel 2 is reporting on Friday.
The operators of a controversial Facebook page which was created to urge and facilitate the migration of Israelis to Berlin told Channel 2 on Friday that they have received over 9,300 requests from people wishing to leave the country.
The page, titled "Olim le Berlin," ("ascending to Berlin"), first caused a stir last week when it posted receipts from Berlin supermarkets highlighting the disparity in the prices of produce when compared to Israeli groceries.
