Since the recent French terrorist attacks, the Jewish exodus from the country has picked up steam.
In recent news:
- Stephen Pollard says terror attack on Kosher store in Paris is no ‘fluke’
- ‘Every single French Jew I know has either left or is actively working out how to leave’, he said
- Experts believe that more than 100,000 French Jews have left since 2013
- France’s Chief Rabbi has said after a number of attacks on Jews in the past year: ‘Jews murdered were targeted specifically because they were Jewish’
A survey last year from the European Jewish Congress and Tel Aviv University found that France had more violent anti-semitic incidents in 2013 than any other country in the world. Jews were the target of 40 per cent of all racist crimes in France in 2013 – even though they comprise less than 1 per cent of the population. Attacks on Jews have risen sevenfold since the 1990s.
Natan Sharansky, the former Soviet refusenik who is now chair of the Jewish Agency Chairman, said last year that 2,254 French Jews moved to Israel during the first five months of 2014, against only 580 in all of 2013. That is a staggering 289 per cent increase, but in recent months the figure is thought to have increased exponentially.
