Some [O]fficial answers:
1. Last year Nationals was a fault, we admitted it and made a free "Draft compensation" which included product with total price about 50 shekels at least (1 revised, 1 invasion, 1 tempest booster and also 1 random booster for prize). So you got back your money. If you didn't participate in "Compensation draft", it's not Oryan's fault - you HAD the opportunity to do it. I participated myself.
2. Last year you had cards from 2 drafts. I agree that just pulling the cards without playing them is bad, but well - you cannot make everyone happy, and i'm sure that rare-drafters with 0 points were MORE THAN HAPPY from that draft
3. In Israel, if you are "new repatriant" (ole hadash), you get the citizenship immediately - in the airport directly (I also got it this way and all people from former Soviet Union can backup my words). So he doesn't need to live 10 months here like in USA or something to get citizenship - enough that he counts as Jew and he can get citizenship immediately. This is called citizenship by "hok a-shvut" (O citated the full law and it has hok a-shvut inside).
4. This year Danny Yossef is really the organizer, no kidding. Please address all complaints to him, not to Oryan. Oryan has hired Danny and is paying him money, so obviously Danny counts as official person now.
5. Criterias about top 25/ 50% etc. are dictated by WotC and not Oryan. You can read those here - I posted excerpt from WotC policy:
12 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
National Championships are the highest-level events for individual countries. National Championships determine national teams, which are invited to the World Championships. All National Championships are run at REL 4 and are DCI-sanctioned with a K-value of 40. Most National Championships are invitation-only tournaments; a few are open tournaments.
Each National Championship is open only to those DCI members who are citizens or have been residents of that country since January 1 of the year of the National Championship.
Players may compete in only one National Championship per season. If a player competes in a National Qualifier tournament (such as a Regional Championship, city championship, open tournament, or other tournament offering an invitation to a National Championship) in one country, he or she may not compete in National Qualifier tournaments or National Championships for another country until the following season.
Invitation Criteria (Open National Championships)
In those countries that hold an open National Championship, all players that meet the eligibility requirements (listed above) for a National Championship may compete.
Invitation Criteria (Invitation-Only National Championships)
In countries that hold an invitation-only National Championship, that country's invitation list comprises the following:
That countrys current National Champion.
Members of that countrys current national team.
The Top 4 finishers from that countrys previous National Championship.
The current World Champion (if residing in that country).
The current Pro Player of the Year (if residing in that country).
Players (from that country) with Pro Tour Players Club level 2 or higher.
Winners of invitations through National Qualifier tournaments such as Regional Championships, city championships, open tournaments, and so on.
That countrys Top 10, 25, 50, or 75 DCI Compositeranked players who were previously uninvited. The number of players invited in this manner (10, 25, 50, or 75) depends on the size of the Magic-playing population in the country (see below).
The following countries invite 75 players based on DCI Composite ranking: Germany, Japan, and the United States.
The following countries invite 50 players based on DCI Composite ranking: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Chinese Taipei, Colombia, England, France, Greece, Hong Kong, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Peru, Philippines, Portugal, Russian Federation, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, and Thailand.

The following countries invite 10 players based on DCI Composite ranking: Bulgaria, Ecuador, Estonia, Ireland, Macedonia, Scotland, Serbia and Montenegro, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Uruguay, and Wales.
Countries not listed above either have an open National Championship (no ratings-based invitations awarded), or do not have a DCI-sanctioned National Championship.
