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.

    The pic used for this BCF post is that of a true wack-job, one Giorgio Tsoukalos:

    whose stated job is that of an advocate for the idea that aliens were the principal driver of human development in ancient times (and modern times too). His claim to fame is that of appearing often on this crazy History-channel TV show, “Ancient Aliens”, which promulgates the above thesis. At any rate, his crazy hair-do, and the way he spouts off about aliens, is a bit much to take, and has created some internet parodies of the guy.

    I watch “Ancient Aliens” just for the fun of seeing and hearing stupid things, much like one would watch WWE wrestling. In one AA episode, that featured Albert Einstein, the show states that his path-breaking papers were written with the help of ancient aliens, since no human being could have written them.

    Having said this about poor Giorgio, he is not in any way an anti-Semite.

    No, Jews emigrating to Israel do not give Islamic radicals what they want. The latter want Jews dead. Israel gives Jews life and a more populous Israel is a stronger Israel. However, Jewish emigration shows up the host diaspora governments as incompetent or worse.

    Fight? Fight who? First the crazies who want to kill them then the government that will throw them in prison for defending themselves? Jews should leave France and let the crazies fight it out with the government over who to pogrom next. The political class always takes care of itself, they’ll be fine.

    We should encourage/pressure our politicians to prioritize European Jews who want to come to Canada and accelerate their immigration process: it’s a win-win!

    Jews shave no obligation to any Nation , especially ones where they have been hounded for centuries
