MASS EXODUS : Jews fleeing Europe amid anti-semitic attacks

Leading Jewish thinkers in France are warning that a doubling of anti-Semitism in the country and an alarming rise in anti-Jewish violence may lead to a new mass “exodus.” “Jihadism and Nazism… are two faces of the same evil,” Moshe Kantor, head of the European Jewish Congress, told a Holocaust forum in Prague on Monday, as he warned France was “close to” a new exodus. Immigration into Israel has nearly doubled since the start of 2015, according to the Institute for Jewish Policy Research. Israel’s summer operation in Gaza definitely didn’t help, but it is still the old fear of a sparked hatred that haunts Europe’s Jews. The Charlie Hebdo shootings and ensuing events, including the hostage-taking at the Jewish store, are a testament to rising fears. The alarm bells are even ringing out from the top of the Israeli government, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recommending his fellow Jews to come home to avoid anti-Semitism.

A mass “exodus” from France could see up to 600,000 Jews affected, as it is among the European countries with the biggest Jewish populations.


Jeremiah 16v14-16 - Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said, The LORD liveth , that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt ; but , The LORD liveth , that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north & from all the lands whither he had driven them : & I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers. Behold , I will send for many fishers , saith the LORD & they shall fish them ; & after will I send for many hunters & they shall hunt them from every mountain & from every hill . . .
