PostSubject: French Jews flee to Israel   Mon Jan 12, 2015 8:43 pm



Paris terrorist's wife expressed sympathy for al-Qaeda


About 500,000 Jews live in France, and about 7,000 left for Israel last year, more than double those who emigrated in 2013, according to the World Jewish Congress.

"France has the world's third-largest Jewish community, and yet Jewish life in France will not have a future if the lethal threat posed by Islamic terrorists is not tackled effectively and quickly," World Jewish Congress President Ronald Lauder said.

French Prime Minister Manual Valls said, "There is a new anti-Semitism here."

"This new anti-Semitism comes from the difficult neighborhoods, from immigrants from the Middle East and North Africa, who have turned anger about Gaza into something very dangerous," Valls told The Atlantic. "Israel and Palestine are just a pretext. There is something far more profound taking place now."

Monday, at a mortuary housing the victims of Friday's shooting at a kosher supermarket in Paris, bereft family members, mourners and police surrounded four caskets bound for Israel, a common practice in the French Jewish community. The funerals will be held Tuesday.

As the caskets were carried to hearses for the trip to the airport, some family members draped themselves over the caskets, crying.

One young woman, Yohan Cohen, 22, raced after the hearse as it left the funeral home. A police officer caught her in his arms and hugged her as she sobbed.

The brother of slain Philippe Braham was embraced and comforted by almost everyone there, one by one after he broke down.

An umbrella Jewish organization in France, CRIF, is covering the costs of sending the caskets to Israel for burial.

The French government's response to deploy extra police reflects how the kosher supermarket attack was the most shocking violence against Jews here in recent memory. But it wasn't an isolated event.

"We're quite shocked and upset," Marc Lissak, a Jewish Parisian, said about the attack. "We have been living in fear for years, so we aren't surprised."

In May, four people were killed after Mehdi Nemmouche, 29, a French citizen of Algerian descent, opened fire in the Jewish Museum of Belgium in Brussels.

In 2012, another French Algerian, Mohammed Merah, 23, went on a multiday shooting spree, killing three French soldiers and attacking a Jewish school in Toulouse, leaving four dead, including three children.

Gabrielle Zeitoun, a frequent customer at the Hyper Cacher supermarket in Paris, said the government hasn't taken the threats seriously, even in specific incidents. In a hair salon last week, a woman said she found a Nazi swastika painted on her car Thursday.

"She called the police because she knew there would be a video of the incident due to the synagogue across the street," Zeitoun said. "But the police said that they couldn't just demand the video and put her off."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who attended Sunday's massive unity rally in Paris, said French immigrants are welcome and entitled to citizenship under Israeli laws if they think their native country is too dangerous.

"To all the Jews of France, all the Jews of Europe, I would like to say that Israel is not just the place in whose direction you pray. The state of Israel is your home," he said over the weekend.

Valls pleaded for Jews to stay, telling The Atlantic that "if 100,000 Jews leave, France will no longer be France."

Some are listening even as they vowed not to become defenseless victims.

"We are French Jews," said Peggy Fitoussi, a vendor at a Parisian street market. "We were born in Paris, so we prefer to stay in Paris. But we must be left alone. We shouldn't be attacked. ... We are going to defend ourselves."

France topped the list of nations most pessimistic about their economic future.

Of course, this is probably just a coincidence.

They should rename it "The Holocaust State" because we are going to be paying for it.

Hey Mr Bob -- You are a smart guy

If France admits to 700,000 Zhids, themn the real number is 1.4 million. But Bob, I thought Nazis killed off all the French Zhids?? Maybe the holocaust is just a jew bullshit fable?

French soil not good enough for "French" Jews? But it's good enough for WWI/II US soldiers (fingernails).

Could be. Despite having some French ancestors I gotta say that in general French people are pretty awful. Unfriendly, opinionated & blatantly hostile to tourists w/price gouging & curt service. A few nice enough.

BTW just sorta realized there's very few French tourists in DC. Tons of Chinese, Japanese, other Asians & scattered Euros but can't remember last time I heard a French accent in tourist areas. Few times I've met French tourists in DC they've always been jerks. Attempting pidgin French doesn't help though it helps in France. An article once said that French are sometimes afraid to speak English even though they might know a bit...traditional French language education supposedly so perfectionist that French were reluctant to speak imperfectly in a foreign language.

Anyway Hitler wrote how France had poisoned values from long ago.

Herr Gold,

Jews, would they lie to us?
