French Jews are fleeing a wave of anti-Semitism and moving to Israel, the United States, and Canada.
Is it any wonder that the Jewish community in France may be feeling uncomfortable? Incidents of Anti-Semitism have been on the increase and now,with the outbreak of Muslim violence throughout the country, the handwriting is on the wall. In some cases, literally, where acts of desecration of Jewish monuments and temples have occurred.
The French have been in denial about all of this, Jacques Chirac telling a Jewish editor, "stop saying there is anti-Semitism in France. There is no anti-Semitism in France." Just as the recent riots are the result of a “profound malaise” and not the criminal mischief of Muslims, Chirac continues to play the perfect Frenchman in denial. Even the recent burning of churches during the riots has done nothing to slap Jacques back to reality.
First they came for the Jews, then the Catholics and Protestants and soon Chirac, it will be your turn. But don't worry it's only the Muslim malaise. Keep fiddling while Paris burns.
There is an interesting article at Canada.com regarding the French Jews and their latest exodus.
