Exodus: Almost 10,000 Jews Fled to Israel From W. Europe Terror
Europe imports anti-semitism
I guess there was not enough anti-semitism in Europe so the West decided to import millions of Muslims.
(New American) - In 2015, almost 10,000 Jews — the highest annual number ever — fled to Israel to escape the escalating terrorist attacks in western Europe. The exodus is double the number of Jews who left just two years ago, and nearly 8,000 of them were from France.
France has the third largest Jewish population in the world, approximately 500,000. However, nearly 800 Jews also left Britain last year, and large numbers also moved out of Italy and Belgium.
France has of late been the prime target of terrorists, such as the attacks in Paris on November 13, which killed 130 people on the one-year anniversary of the murders of a dozen employees at the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. The killings at the magazine office were presumably in response to several satirical cartoons published in Charlie Hebdo depicting the prophet Muhammad — actions considered blasphemous by Muslims.
Following those attacks, a self-proclaimed Islamic terrorist also killed four customers at the Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket in Paris. Hundreds of French soldiers then began patrolling Jewish neighborhoods, and continue to do so until this day. French officials cite sobering statistics that more than half of all the reported attacks have been directed at Jews, although Jews make up less than one percent of the population.
In Marseille this past week, a Jewish teacher was assaulted with a machete by a teenager from Turkey. After police arrested the young man, he proclaimed that he had acted in the name of ISIS. This latest attack has prompted a local Jewish leader, Zvi Ammar, to advise fellow Jews to refrain from wearing their traditional skullcaps (known as kippas), at least until there are “better days.” However, other Jews and French officials fear that such a reaction would be seen as giving in to the terrorists.
A July 2014 march in Paris, announced as an event to support the cause of the Palestinians, turned instead toward the looting of Jewish businesses, while perpetrators shouted anti-Israeli slogans.
