Aviela Deitch made Aliyah as a teen as a strong Zionist. Twenty years later, her home and community of Migron was destroyed by the Israeli government.
Aviela says, "I feel betrayed and a horrific sense of disappointment. We were rooting for the home team and the home team was the Israelis . . . It's a different picture when you're actually here.

You can't make it better unless you participate as much as you can to make it the way it should be." She adds with irony, "You can't have the army who is defending us, and for the most part they do defend us, be the enemy!"
