Israel I

Did you ever think of going to Palest... to Israel?


Did you ever consider going to Israel?

I was in Israel. You mean permanent?


No, I, I tell you the truth. I was in Israel four times. I like the country, but I don't like to live there. I got a better taste, you know, of living, you know.

But you knew your brother was there?

Yeah, my brother yeah, but he passed away.

When was that?

He passed away in 1977. I got a call one time in the night. And my luck, my passport was not valid, you know. I had a passport here all the time, valid passport. I didn't know it was not valid, you know.

So you couldn't go there?

No, I couldn't go to the funeral. I went after. I got, got my new passport for five years.
