Many American towns and cities are named for Biblical places. In those places, there are no laws preventing Jews from living and thriving. Not far from my parents is a Jericho, where unlike in the real article, there is a Jewish community.

As you know, I live in Shiloh, BibleLand, which bothers the American government. The American State Department doesn't want Jews living in our Holy City. I'm not interested in living in any of the imitation Shiloh's, like in California, Alabama, Florida, Georgia or more.

In Alabama, there's a small city named Dothan, which has a Jewish community that is trying to beef itself up by offering a $50,000 package for Jews to settle there. The original Dothan/Dotan is a Biblical site. It's where Joseph's brothers sold him.

Now, I think that Jews should live in Israel, the HolyLand, Bible Land, and I find it very ironic that davka, Dotan is offering money. If you're interested in Dotan, why settle for the imitation? There's a Jewish community in the Shomron, Mevo Dotan.
