Exodus of French Jews expected (Jewish Agency to assist in the rescue of thousands of French Jews)
new24.com ^ | 13/06/2004 | Tisha Steyn

Jerusalem - The Jewish Agency is bracing itself for the immigration of tens of thousands French Jews into Israel as a result of a growing anti-Semitism in France, a spokesperson for the organisation said on Sunday.

Senior government officials including Immigration Absorption Minister Tzippi Livni, cabinet director Ilan Cohen and the president of the quasi-governmental Jewish Agency, Sallai Meridor, met last week "to work out how to come to the help of potential Jewish immigrants from France", Yaden Vatikai told AFP.

Vatikai said that a report compiled by the agency had found 30 000 out of France's 575 000-strong Jewish community were considering immigrating to Israel.

"We are multiplying our efforts to encourage in this case, particularly with an information campaign," he said.

Jews living in France say that they are victims of a growing tide of anti-Semitic crime.

French Justice Minister Dominique Perben said last week that 180 anti-Jewish acts had been recorded so far this year, including cases of assault, arson and verbal insults.

His ministry said no comparison was available with previous years because this was the first time that anti-Jewish acts were being recorded in such detail.

Vatikai said the situation for French Jews was becoming increasingly "difficult".

What would be nice for a lot of American Jews (or others) who have businesses here in the USA would be to gather some sort of list of the would-be emigres and what they do for a living, how good their English skills are, etc. This way, people here could try to hire them and allow them to come legally to America as well.

I have a number of French expatriate Jewish friends. The French Jews are not only leaving, but the ones I have spoken to have some very strong feelings about the Arab-muslim population here in America.

They are indeed leaving France.

"They are searching the French Nation Railroad for boxcars"

I read recently that realising how much money it would make, it was this very same company that had lobbied the Germans and Vichy to round up the Jews and ship them to Auschwitz. In providing little food and by using cattle trucks, the company made a fortune out of this tragedy.

When they realise the extent of anti-Semitism in Canada, hopefully not many.

Yeah, because we all know there aren't any Americans who might be employable, such that this suggestion to discriminate on the basis of religion and national origin is justifiable.

They are a hugely successful and talented people. I would imagine they would create far more prosperity than they would take. In recent years, American Jews have founded companies like Dell, Intel, Cisco and Oracle. If French Jews could only do half as well, the U.S. would be getting quite some deal.

Creating jobs is not what the original poster was suggesting. I'm all for allowing people with capital into the country to start businesses, but the suggestion was to give them special treatment in terms of employment. One makes sense, the other is simple discrimination.

All 575,000 Jews must be out of France by the end of this decade. The combination of leftist anti-semitism and Islamic hatred will make it impossible to be a Jew inside of France by then. I'm glad they have started to wake up and get out.

With so many Jews in the exile having to flee for their lives again, does it really make sense for Sharon to be making portions of the ancient Biblical Jeiwsh homeland judenrein?

Something tells me the Jews of the world are going to need every square inch of the Biblical Homeland soon. Sharon and all the secular Zionists, as well as the peaceniks, had better think long and hard about this.

"These are not historical posts.
This is today."

Yes, it is bad, very bad, and likely to get worse. I was reading something about Anne Frank the other day, and learned that her family went to Holland from another country (oh, now I can't remember which one, maybe Austria? Frank is a pretty German name) and thought they would be safe there. Look what happened to them!

I feel that this growing anti-semitism is a very, very bad sign for us all. And evidently some Saudis have already decided to just kill westerners where ever and when ever they find them.

All in all, not good. Still so far, not too much Islamoviolence in the USA, could the terrorists really fear Ashcroft as much as the lefties seem to? Or is this just the calm before the storm?

I agree. What a great propaganda coup and humanitarian gesture if President Bush offered the Jews of France asylum in the U.S.A.

FDR refused admittance to European Jews during the Hitler years. After the war, many of the survivors came to America and brought with them wonderful talents. Music, art, science, education all greatly benefited.

Take it how you want, but let me set the condition for their acceptance. First priority is that they drop the Leftist politics of hating Western Civ and Christianity if they for some stupid reason imbibed that poisonous ideology. We need more Alan Dershowitz Democrats like we need Bubonic Plague, not at all.

Yup, the French should pay their Jewish citizens to stay after all they are the last buffer between the Moslimes and the non Jewish, non Moslime citizenry.
Good luck to the Jewish immigrants where ever they go. The remaining French will live to regret their leaving.

It would be a mistake to be the last to leave. The Moslems, now at least 10 percent (and maybe already as high as 20 percent) of the French population are breeding like rabbits. After they finish off the Jews they'll go after the Christians next.

Your tagline is incorrect.

Reagan won 489 votes in 1980, and 525 in 1984, which is 1014 electoral votes.

But in 1976 he received one vote from a Washington State elector, bringing the total to 1015.

If France is so anti-semitic, why are there 575,000 Jews there now, when there were barely 70,000 around 1930? Seems it must be a fairly good country for them to receive so many immigrant Jews.

It is precisely because of people like you that six million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust. After all, if countries like the U.S. had allowed Jews to emigrate there would have been no Jews left to murder.

Huh! So it's the US's fault now that 6 million Jews died?
Junta was speaking her mind and I support her theory. If that's not okay with you then too bad. I can't stand the automatic anti-semitism stuff that comes out if one speaks ones mind. junta is correct, the majority of the Jewish population are lefties - that's a fact. Another fact is we contribute 3 billion of our tax dollars to Israel - the 25% you speak of can be deducted from that sum. All of that being said the Jewish people are welcome to the US but I for one will not be told to shut-up.
