You are head of a wealthy European Jewish family in late 19th century. Your country just "liberated" Jerusalem area (modern Israel & Jordan) and slaughtered all Arab population there, and are now looking for volunteer for repopulation. As a Jew, you are looking forward to do so. Your government does not wish Jews to "pollute" the holy city again, but it would be bad for reputation to ban them altogether, so they set up some ridiculous condition specifically for Jews. Any Jewish individual that wish to migrate to Jerusalem area need to turn in 80% of their wealth in order to do so. The reason behind is because the government wish to reduce the economical influence of Jewish people, seize their property and give it to credible aristocrats. As such, they have already limit the emigration of wealthy Jews to other countries. Despite the ridiculously unfair terms, to the government's suprise, there are already thousands of Jews turned in their property and migrate to Jerusalem. As a Jewish person that wants to return to your long lost homeland but are not happy with the terms, what would you do? The government are too bound by reputation to force you into any choice.
