Should They Stay? Jew-Hating Islamists May Be Chasing Jews from France

For the first time since World War II, the number of Jews emigrating from France to Israel exceeded those coming from the U.S. to the Jewish State. Anti-semitic incidents were on the rise well before the world heard of hostages in a Kosher grocery during the three days of terror around the attack on Charlie Hebdo. Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu invites French Jews to flee to France, but some Jews say that just gives the Islamist radicals what they want. Do Jews in the diaspora have an obligation to stand and fight this new wave of Jew-hatred, or is it starting to look enough like 1930s Germany that they should pack their bags and go up to Jerusalem? Scott Ott, Stephen Green and Stephen Kruiser consider the options.
