1. Kibbutz Givat Oz ...

.... is also dominated by people who emigrated from Brazil. It's a lovely kibbutz, located two kilometers east of Tzomet Megiddo.
2. Believe me.

Jewish Brazilians are really good people. They always help each other. They are reliable and honest. If you are a Brazilian oleh, like them, they never try to entrap you asking for a money loan and then - don't pay. They don't do this. They don't want to trouble you at ulpan, speaking Portuguese all the time with you; they are not invidious of your learning. That's why I love Brazilians abroad and that's why I never run away from them.
3. I thought Israel was their homeland

....and they just brought their Brazilian culture with them (and very nice too!)

I was being ironical at my last comment, of course (I was talking about fake Zionists that go to Israel, for any suspected reasons) - BTW, Mr .Aranha, (it means spider) - he was an antisemitic. During Vargas regime, they refused visas for Hungarian children that perished at Shoah. There was a secret document stating Jewish refugees were "undesirable people" here in Brazil - on the other side of history, there was a great woman, Aracy de Carvalho GuimarĂ£es Rosa, who is a Righteous Among the Nations. She was wife to GuimarĂ£es Rosa.
5. Oh, stop!
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (10.14.12)
I love Brazil and I love Brazilians. I travel a great deal to Brazil. Yes, Rio can be dangerous -- but so can New York. It's a question of reasonable caution. While I love Rio, and Sao Paulo, and Recife, I spend most of my time on business, in Santos and Itajai. The cuisine, the people, the warmth and the friendliness are unsurpassed. Brazil is a wonderful country.
6. To N 5, Sarah B.

Thank you, Mr's Sarah B. As a Brazilian citizen, I feel myself happy for your comment. When you want to comeback to Rio, my home will be at your disposal. Salutes.
7. ....homeland?
Jon m. ,   Jerusalem, israel   (10.15.12)
I think if you would ask the kibbutznikim where is your "homeland" you would get a very differnet answer...
8. we are very PROUD !!!
Natan ,   Israel   (12.23.12)
Yes , we have double nationality , but to be a Brazilian is a state of spirit , that NEVER goes away . Homeland ? This is the place where you live , just like that . I am very very proud to be a Brazilian , and I live for 30 years in Israel . I am still a Brazilian !
9. it was only a matter of $$$
Natan Galkowicz ,   Israel   (12.23.12)
My father and mother arrived from the concentration camp , direct to Brazil , and the only condition to get into Brazil was a payment of $2000 by person . The Jewish Agency paid for everybody . This was a pure business , and have nothing to do with antisemitism . I lived in Brazil for 27 years , and NEVER got any problem . I still have great Brazilians friends . In Argentina , the story is totally different ..... they receive also Nazis AND Jewish . Yes , in Argentina you do have antisemitic people ....
