French Jews are converting to Islam and even joining ISIS

According to reports from Jewish leaders in France, there is concern about a rise in conversions to Islam from within the Jewish community.

According to reports from Jewish community leaders in France, there is growing concern about a rise in conversions to Islam from within the Jewish community, with the active encouragement of French Moslems.

Sammy Ghozlan, head of the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Antisemitism in France says he knows of cases where entire families converted to Islam. The 15-year-old daughter of a Jewish doctor wrote that “all the Jews must be killed” after converting.

In many cases the Moslem recruiters who wish to persuade Sephardic Jewish youth to convert, entice them by pointing out their joint background from Islamic countries and the difference between their culture and that of the French Christians

    Better muzz than dead, I guess. And better to be a member of the privileged class (muslims) than the despised and disempowered one (Jewish/Christian) in French society. So it’s understandable. Still, I rather hope that these convert-cowards continue to get treated abysmally and discriminated against by their wonderful newfound friends in the religion of peace, despite their embracing the ideology of hate. It would serve them right.

    These are Jews that graduated from the bottom of their class.

    Wow, talk about surrender…

    On the other hand, a 15-year-old does not have a mature brain and is therefore not capable of making rational decisions. It’s super tough to be a parent these days, with all sorts of poison out there.

    Why do I suspect that they are all secular and at best “cultural” Jews? Ignorance of history carries a big price.

      JINO’s seem to be the majority these days. Sad.

    Something very strange is going on. Yesterday, when I saw this story, I also happened to read a story on another topic in the Jerusalem Post. The story was about the apparent kidnapping of babies born to women who had come to Israel from Islamic countries in the early days of Israel. The children were given to childless Ashkenazi couples. However, as I continued to read, I noticed some serious flaws in the narrative (my background is that of a professional editor), so I mentally filed it under “fairy tale” and started to ask myself why the JP would publish such a piece.

    Now, you will probably agree that both Arutz 7 and the JP are credible sources.

    I have no answers, but I have a hell of a lot of questions. Here are some (my list is far from complete).

    Is there a culture war being waged between the Ashkenazim and the Sephardim?

    Is there a religious war being waged between the observant and the secular?

    Have destructive trolls entered the ranks of respected news outlets?

    Is sowing seeds of dissension within the Jewish community part of the ploy not only to destroy Israel but also Jews in the diaspora?

    Bottom line: be very careful about what you read, regardless of the source.

      I tend to take these things with a grain of salt. All serve in the military, where they are thrown together and come to respect one another if not form friendships. A clear indication is the position of Ethiopian Jews. If there were racial disturbances, the world would instantly know about it thanks to the beady-eyed media.

      there are such rumors about jemenits but no evidence, not a single one.
      the ashkenazi jews of the 40’s 50’s have been beter educated
      and lived under beter conditions than jewish refugees from arabia,

      you have of curse stress in between the groups but they
      intermarry today and you have trouble to deside
      who is ashkenasi and who sefardy today.

      the last marriage i visited in israel was ortodox between a guy with
      hungarian-romanian-lybian-tunesian ancestors and a
      girl with russian-georgian ancestors.

      in ultraortodox comunitys you still have a light division beause the jung
      people have no conections to eachother but it is breaking apart because
      the ultraortodox comunitys organise more and more together.

      i am sure that ashkenasis in the 50’s had beter perspective to adopt
      than a sephardi but not now.
