Many Jews Prepare to Leave France for Israel

by Ben Shapiro

According to the Jewish Agency for Israel, over 5,000 Jews from throughout France attended a fair in the heart of Paris about immigrating to Israel. The fair was attended by the Chairman of the Jewish Agency, former member of Knesset, Soviet expatriate and dissident Natan Sharansky. 

“I cannot recall having seen such a massive number of people interested in aliyah [immigration] since the days when lines of people stretched out of the Israeli embassy in Moscow,” said Sharansky. 

The fair took place the same day as the election that rousted Nicholas Sarkozy, a reliable anti-Iran voice in Europe, from power, replacing him with the far less reliable Francois Hollande, a socialist with heavy ties to anti-Israel populations. 

The French Jewish community is comprised of approximately 500,000 people. Immigration from France to Israel has increased significantly over the past several years, largely due to upticks in perceived anti-Semitic feeling in the country.

This Anon101. Check out Rabbi Pinchas Winston's pdf book entitled "Drowning in Pshat". It is free right now. Talking about right now, Jew hatred has to raise to get Jews out of the Chul. Read his book and it will show you why Hashem is doing this. You can find his book here http://www.thirtysix.org/Thirtysix.org/Drowning_In_Pshat/Drowning_In_Pshat.html

Hopefully Anon101, the Toulouse pogram that already occurred and the results of Sunday's election will be all the bloodshed and all the convincing that we have to witness to bring hundreds of thousands of French Jews home to Eretz Yisrael. Dear G-d may it be so. Amen.
