0.3% of Jewish Population of France Leaves in 3 Months


If France didn’t already have one of the largest Jewish populations in the world, in no small part because of the flight of Middle Eastern Jews from the Muslim world, immigration on this scale would have more of an impact.

As it is, it’s fairly significant.

The number of French Jews emigrating to Israel rose nearly four-fold in the first quarter of the year and could touch a record in 2014, a Jewish organization said Monday.

The Jewish Agency for Israel, a global body responsible for the immigration and absorption of Jews into Israel, said 1,407 people left France for Israel between January and March against 353 people a year earlier.

The number of French Jews leaving for Israel has been growing steadily. A total of 1,907 left in 2012 and it rose to 3,280 in 2013.

If these numbers are correct then half as many French Jews got out in 3 months as in all of last year. It’s not entirely clear what would have touched off this jump. It may be a growth in local Muslim violence that did not make the national news.

As it is, it once again demonstrates that Islam is incompatible with diversity. A growing Muslim population displaces other ethnic and religious groups who flee its intolerance.

Many of France’s Jews fled Algeria and Morocco. Now they have to become refugees from Muslim intolerance all over again.

    France is in serious trouble, and a majority of the French are still asleep at the wheel. When Jews start to leave, it’s a serious wake up call. If the French are smart, they will reflect on what happened to Germany at the end of WWII. Sticking your head in the sand and being “willfully ignorant” usually ends very badly.

        How can we help? The world can’t just stand by in apathy and denial again. Decades of reviling the Nazi Regime and now it’s being tolerated to happen all over again. Not a world I want to live in.

      • Carlos_Perera

        Or like the elves leaving Middle Earth in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

      • Wolfthatknowsall

        A very apt description. My grandfather used to work in the coal mines of West Virginia, when they still used that simple but effective method to tell them when it was time to go … quickly.

        I used to live in the same neighborhood, in Chicago, in which a Jewish man and his family lived. They saw the “handwriting on the wall” on Kristallnacht, and finally managed to get permission to leave Germany on … ahem … August 29, 1939.

        There’s going to be an explosion in Europe, and it will likely start in France.

    • Gee

      Unfortunately the French hate Jews just as much as the Muslims do.
      Like the Christians in Muslim countries – they seem to think that their similar attitudes toward Jews will allow some sort of protection from Muslim oppression they will find that once again when the Saturday people are gone, the Sunday people are their next target

      • Texas Patriot

        Unfortunately the French hate Jews just as much as the Muslims do.

        A couple of years ago I got hold of a book called Purity and Sin in Ancient Judaism (Oxford University Press, 2000) by Jonathan Klawans. Fascinating read. It talks about the high priority placed by Judaism on the values of “ritual purity” and “moral purity”. So it’s really no wonder that Jews have always been thought of as a people set apart from the rest. And of course, what people don’t understand makes them nervous and afraid. A lack of effective communication always results in misunderstanding, and that usually leads to fear. And the next step after fear is usually hatred. Hatred of Jews is an old story, but hardly surprising.

        • tickletik

          The hatred actually has it’s roots in the Greek philosophers. Before that it was just normal fighting between competing cultures. But those guys just couldn’t let it go at that. Between us and them it became a serious culture war and the subsequent Roman wars were mostly a result of Greek influence and hatred.

          total bastards.

        • Chavi Beck

          If this were the reason for antisemitism, then the more Jews assimilate the faster antisemitism should go down. However this has not been the case. Nobody was more completely assimilated than Germany’s Jews back in the day.

          • westie

            Did not the German & International Jews declare war on the nation of Germany in 1933? That’s assimilation? How about the US Jews that spied for Stalin? Time to remove the mote!

    • NY girl

      Already 7 or 8 years ago, I met French Jews who desperately wanted to leave France and emigrate to the US, but found it impossible.

      Israel is a small country, making it difficult to start over professionally and economically, thus only .3% of Jews are willing to uproot, for now.m If the US were to open their borders to them, the numbers of Jews leaving France would have been much higher.

      • Texas Patriot

        There is probably a greater need for Israel today than ever before. Fortunately, with Israel’s newly discovered oil and natural gas wealth, together with Israel’s superior intellectual and technology capital, it should be possible for Israel to create a fantastically secure and productive society and become a beacon of hope for Jews around the world.

  • Ban Liberals

    They should ALL leave, and by doing so leave France to it’s Muslim invaders, occupiers, and destroyers.

    France, like the brainless dolts (pardon the redundancy) in the UK, Belgium, Sweden, etc., is committing suicide by Islam.

    Jews should flee as fast as they can, and emigrate to Israel — where Muslims and Islam and Sharia will never become supreme as it has and is, in Muslim Europe.

    • john spielman

      God bless Israel!!!!!


        G-d Bless America too!!!!!


      “Ban Liberals” AKBAR!

      A REAL Liberal should be a decent person.

      The FAKE “Liberals”, the regressive progressives are the enemy of humanity and the friend of Islam, Socialism.

    • Drakken

      Having worked with French special forces, The Legion and Marine Commandos, they can be extremely ruthless and brutal when they need to be. The French are waking up to the horror in their midst, hence the rise of the right and the left are running scared. Violence in a muslim dominated town is always beneath the surface and ready to coming to a boil at a moments notice. Vigilante groups in the smaller towns are now becoming more frequent and now the French police are starting to turn a blind eye to them for their hands are tied by the leftist politicians. There will be a civil war sooner or later, all it is going to take to kick off the festivities is the catalyst.

    • tickletik

      We’d be doing the French a serious favor as well. When we properly take back our homeland, we will be giving a signal to all indigenous people to do the same. To have pride in themselves and their own culture.

    Around the turn of the century, when La Penn was crucified by the French for daring to speak about the evil of Islam, I guesstimated France would fall to Islam circa 2035-2040.

    I do not blame the Jews for getting out while they can. Only an ignoramus white liberal refuses to see the true nature of Islam. Eventually it will be open season on Jews in France.

    When Ronald Wilson Reagan asked the French for permission to use their airbases to go after Khadafy, (spelling?), the French said no.

    When BB, Bridget Bardot spoke out against Islam France fined her.

    The French are going to get a taste of reality sooner or later.

    Glad I’m not French.

      lepen is a naz i.

      You don’t trade one form of evil for another.

      You defeat BOTH evils.

      • Drakken

        Le Pen isn’t a na-z-I. She is a nationalist, first, second and third. She sees the writing on the wall and is trying to get ahead of the coming troubles.

      • Drakken

        Le Penn is not a naz I, she and her movement are nationalist. The French left are scared to death of the gains she is making in towns and cities across France.

      • Atikva

        Don’t talk nonsense. If you have forgotten what national socialism was, I haven’t. Neither has Tad Gilad, who recently fired back at someone wildly using and abusing the word “nazi” to define anyone disagreeing with him. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/180536#.U3Pqj9JdUgi

    I just hope they decide to scrap their nuclear capability before Mohammed’s black flag flies over France.


      Same applies to the UK.

    • James Mayer

      It never will; stop being such a pessimist. Europeans are organising, and are going to come out on top…

      • Drakken

        Finally! Someone else who gets it.

        • Notalibfool

          Agreed! The day when the European masses rise up against their oppressors will be here soon.

          • Drakken

            It is coming, when it happens, it will be sudden and take everyone by surprise. Make no mistake, there is a bloodbath coming.

          • Notalibfool

            Yep, and it all could have been avoided simply by using common sense. Too bad Europe’s leftist leaders have none.

  • Manaphy

    Hopefully this trend will continue. Jews are parasitic scum, and France is much better off without them. My greatest dream is Europe without Jews.

    • Notalibfool

      I admire Jews. They have made countless positive contributions to western society and have survived centuries of discrimination. Israel is a bright light in a sea of violence and darkness.

      Why are some people are so afraid of Jews and Judaism? Are they just looking for a scapegoat? Trying to compensate for some personal issue? Completely delusional? Some combination of the above?

      • tickletik

        Ever seen a fat slog of a pig in a classroom, the kind of kid you know is abused by his parents and picked on by the older tougher members in his gang? A total worthless wreck of a human being. And then he sees the smart kid from the good family sitting properly, friendly, a good guy. But, and this is key, that smart kid is a bit insecure, a bit uncertain of himself. A bit self loathing as well.

        Well, at that point, the fat smelly, stinking ugly, hated pig of a child will make it his mission in life to inflict all his self hatred and self loathing on the little nerd. He’ll blame him for everything, he will play every psychological game he can to mess with that kid and have everyone turn on him.

        That right there is anti-semitism in a nutshell.

        It ends when the little nerd decides to step up and take care of himself like a human being.

        why do people hate the Jews? its in the Bible. they are Gods chosen people and the devil hates them because of that. So if you hate the Jews just know who’s side you are on. Jesus came from the Jews and if the Jews do not return to the land because it is no longer there for them then he can’t come again and if that happened it would make the God of the Bible a liar which we know he is not. Therefore we know who inspired Islam. Who was it that Muhammed said he met – an angel?

        Galatians 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed

        2 Corinthians 14,15 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

      Keep dreaming, your lousy piece of trash. We too have a dream, which is to see you scumbags leave America so that we can breeze a cleaner air. But we know that unfortunately vermin never totally disappear, so we’ll put up with burying you where you belong, under 10 ft of manure.

      “My greatest dream is Europe without Jews.”

      Give it another 20 years. And 50 years after that it’ll be a Europe without Europeans.

      • Manaphy

        That is only because of Jewish-created immigration laws, which were designed to import millions of Africans and Muzzies into Europe and make Whites a minority.

        • Notalibfool

      And we have a live one. Go ahead: Tell us what you really want to see happen to all Jews in the world.

      Why do you hang out here if you hate Jews so much anyway? This is a Pro-Jewish/Pro-Israel site. You would be more at home with your fellow troglodyte scum on VNN or Stormfront…

  • antioli

    Perhaps France should protect it’s citizens from violence and religious bigotry
    France should make it a priority. In other European countries Islamic violence not only attacks Jews but attacks every one especially women. Yet even those countries have not targeted violent Muslims . They all seem to have a case of Hillary Denialitis which denies that Islamic violence exists at all.
    To Please C A I R they could target Apostate Muslims who would be the only Muslims who would commit violence. The real Muslims who do not commit violence would be left alone.

    • Drakken

      To rid ourselves of Islamic jihadist, were going to have to get rid of every last muslim. That day is coming sooner than anyone could anticipate in Europe.

  • tickletik

    Not enough. They should be moving out faster. Buy homes and start buildings in the homeland. Enough already, enough. It’s time to rebuild and take control of the destiny God is handing to us
