The name of this article should change to Russian-born Israelis or Israelis born in Russia.--Nitsansh 17:23, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

No--"Soviet Union-born Israelis." Or, for those born before the Soviet state was formed, "Russian Empire-born Israelis" (which includes both Russia, and Russian-controlled occupied lands. The name "Russia" is not a generic term for all the countries of the former Soviet Union. A huge portion of Israelis from the former Soviet Union were NOT born in Russia, but Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Lithuania, Kazakistan, etc. For example, Avigdor Lieberman was not born born in Russia, but in Moldava.
