Another 5,000 Jews Quit France For Israel


Another 5,000 French Jews emigrated to Israel last year, figures showed Monday, continuing a trend that has seen tens of thousands quit the country after a series of attacks targeting the community, AFP reports.

The Jewish Agency of Israel issued the update as France marked two years since attacks on the Charlie Hebdo magazine offices and on a Jewish supermarket in Paris, where four shoppers were shot dead.

Daniel Benhaim, who heads the Israeli-backed group in France, said that insecurity had been a “catalyst” for many Jews who were already thinking of leaving.

The 5,000 departures in 2016 add to the record 7,900 who left in 2015 and 7,231 in 2014. In total, 40,000 French Jews have emigrated since 2006, according to figures seen by AFP. Read more.


  1. Baruch Hashem they are getting out while they still can. France will implode very shortly. Very soon there will be a Muslim majority.

  2. I’ve heard that quite a few French olim are coming to the conclusion that they were better off in France and moving back there. Does anyone know anything about this?

  3. Now it’s time to make israel safe from terrorism. Expell all Arab terrorist families including those in jail now to Syria. Bring in 100 thousand Chinese construction workers and build hundreds of thousands of one and two family homes all over empty land. Stop building twenty and thirty story buildings that only make it an easier target for missles. Spread the population out. There is room for every Jew to live like a king not a sardine in a can. Widen all roads on highways so accidents will decrease. Arabs in gaza and elsewhere should be encouraged to go to Europe. Europe wants israel to give up its land to Arabs. Simple, flood Europe and its allies with another two million Arabs. The Arab would love Europe over gaza. Get hundreds of boats to transport them. Europe will be forced to let them in. Europe will beg israel to stop sending Arabs and even kick in big bucks to israel to pay them off for non shipments.
