700,000 Jews are considering leaving Europe

The European Jewish Congress has publicized a shocking poll: “A third of the European Jews think of emigrating”.

That is 700,000 people.

    As a believer that Jews should be able to live anywhere they darned well chose, I also temper that with the realistic knowledge that any Jew living in Europe is on borrowed time at the hands of Europe’s most recent surge of immigrants.
    Get out while there is time.

    So, million Muslims in, 700,000 Jews out…I am thinking average Euro IQ drops about eight points.

    But, add to that the fact that the smarter, non-Jewish, Europeans are going to look for emigration options and the cost is even larger.

      The numbers of native Britons emigrating is staggering. It is an often overlooked part of the demographic change in Europe.

    Actually, Israel is winning even if it takes in a fraction of these 700,000. Within the last week, drillers found a third large natural gas deposit in the nearby Mediterranean, so the energy needs of all of these newcomers will be met.

    Europe is making real refugees out of Jews again. Congratulations!

    And with them goes how many jobs?

    Where are they all going to go? Israel is not a very big place, and if they come here they will be looking at moving again in a decade.

    Some French Jews have moved to the UK in recent years, about a thousand each year, but that can only be an interim move for a small part of the community.

    $10 says Canada won’t accept any of these refugees – after all Jews are never refugees – when they move to Israel they are called Zionist Imperialist Colonists – when they flee the Arab world they are ignored (i.e. the 800K that fled Muslim lands who had their belongings and properties confiscated) and when they move to the West they are called immigrants.
    They would enrich both Canada and the U.S. and their immigration to Israel can only be considered a demographic bonus.

    700,000 is half not a third. A third would be about 450,000.

    How many of these refugees will PM Selfie accept into Canada? These are refugees in the full sense of the word facing religious persecution in their home that is being sanctioned by all European governments. Come on Junior get out of the mosque and announce a resettlement plan for Jewish refugees.
