  1. This sounds like an excellent opportunity for Jews in a country that has many antisemites.

    The more Jews in positions like this the less power the antisemites will have to cause trouble and further if the Jews are honest and do the job with integrity as I am sure G-d willing, they will, it will be a kiddush H-sh-m also.
