I know people that escaped.
What does that mean?

The US has a far more reasonable entry policy than Israel now

Either way, you are proving my point, the more the merrier.

US might be simpler, but there's no accommodation for recoverees not to get 2 doses.

I am not really following the visitor rules closely, as I am a dual citizen.

I generally agree. The more the merrier, but one has to be aware of drawbacks. For US expats taxation is a drawback. Visiting Israel with an Israeli passport makes VAT an added cost.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

US citizenship is expensive for expats earning money.
Depends if they're biz owners or regular salaried ppl
Regular salaried, taxes in Israel are a bit higher (although males/females have diff net tax rates), but having US citizenship gives a lot of benefits via the child tax credit.
Biz owners have extra complications due to the GILTI tax, plus all the extra reporting

Add in that self employed people in israel are taxed as buisnesses.
I'm pretty sure that if the  IRS can prove that you denounced us citzenship to get out of your tax obligations, it wont be pretty, but we'll have to wait for a tax attorny here to confirm that.
also renouncing us citzenship costs close to 3 grand.

On a side note I just heard on the radio Shaked saying that from 2023 Israelis will no longer need visas to the US

https://jewishinsider.com/2021/11/inside-israels-push-to-join-u-s-visa-waiver-program/

Quote
Yet major obstacles exist to Israel’s inclusion in the program. The percentage of Israeli visa applicants rejected annually remains high, well above the cut-off allowed and, in the past, American officials have raised concerns about Israel’s treatment of Palestinian-Americans at its borders, among other things.
