Two Planes of French Jews Immigrate to Israel

Two planeloads of immigrants from France arrived in Israel Monday, marking the largest French immigration to Israel in decades. The 330 new immigrants arrived at Ben Gurion Airport on two flights, from Paris and Mareseille, which arrived simultaenously. The mass Aliyah (immigration to Israel) was organized by the Jewish Agency and AMI, a voluntary organization set up by French Jews to provide assistance for immigrants from France, modeled after the Nefesh b’Nefesh Aliyah assistance organization which assists immigrants from North America. AMI grants financial aid to those who need to pay back loans or move their businesses to Israel, as well as stipends for students making Aliyah. Four Torah scrolls were also brought to Israel together with the new immigrants, signifying a continually increasing flow of France’s Jewish community toward the Jewish homeland. “France still has a Jewish population of about 600,000, but Aliyah continues to increase and we hope all of French Jewry will come home soon,” Bingham said, summing up the sentiments of those who addressed the new immigrants upon arrival.

Is there anywhere else in Europe where this sort of thing is going on?
France seems to have once again alienated the Jews.

Ah the French– the children of liberty, equality and fraternity.

French newspaper Liberation reports there were 970 attacks against Jews, as opposed to 601 in 2003. Most of the attacks came from individuals of “Arab or Muslim extraction”.

Actually the French has just released a report saying that anti-semitic incidents are dramatically (about 50%) down in comparison with the last year.

50 percent down? Possibly that's because there are now fewer French Jews for the Muslims to attack.

irene: more likely because the French started kicking the foreign mullahs who preach antisemitism out of France.

French aliya headed toward record numbers

Against the backdrop of rising anti-Semitism in France, the first two planeloads of French Jews making aliya with the support of the AMI fund will arrive at Ben-Gurion Airport Monday.

The 330 immigrants will push the total of French arrivals toward an anticipated 30-year high of 3,300 immigrants this year. Immigration from France has already risen 30 percent so far compared to the same period in 2004, continuing a three-year trend.

That Jews are yet again leaving France or Europe, is a sad day for Europe and France, and is a harbinger of major events to come, that will touch all are lives. It is like when one sees birds migrating south, one knows that winter is not far behind. I'm frightened.

I'm frightened that our politicians still do not see. They were the ones, who with their inane and ignorant immigration policies, let in millions of muslims into Europe, the cause of terrorism, economic dislocation, and now the emmigration of Jews from Europe. It is understandable, that our elites, having caused the problem, are now desperate NOT to acknowledge that a problem actually exists.

I wish Jews would stay in Europe and fight the tide of islam that has been imposed on us by our elites. Howver it is hard to blame these Jewish emmigres, considering what happened so recently in history.

pd111: Jews are always the canary in the coal mine, aren't they? Yes, this is a harbinger of much worse things to come. I think we'll win. Europe won't become Islamic in the end, at least not most of it. But it may become very deeply damaged by this.

Perhaps Europe's post-colonial and post-Holocaust guilt complex will be washed away with the blood of millions of Europeans.

Fjordman:

Yes, Jews are the proverbial canaries in the mine. It is unfortunate that canaries had to die in large numbers to alert miners of a dangerous substance in the atmosphere. This time, the canaries are quite literally flying south.
------------------------------------
This departure of Jews indicates that the real battle has begun.

Taqqiya and Kitman will now really come to play. Prepare for real lying from muslim spokesman and women. This will even go as far, depending on the Western nation and the circumstances, to abrogating certain verses in the koran (English or German versions but not the Arabic one), to suit the sensibility of that particular Western audience. The LLL will applaud and say that islam is reforming. Pres. Bush and PM Blair will claim that they have been instrumental in the Reformation of Islam etc etc

The global Jihad has made a huge investment in the West ie the ummah, its main instrument for the subjugation of non-muslim lands and soceities. It will go to any lengths to safeguard it.

Who knows how many Jews have left Israel for France during the same time?

pd111: if it makes you feel any better (I know this is not much of a consolation) this Jew has actually moved to Europe (from the US) 11 years ago and is here to stay.

I really do believe that Europe is stronger than ummah.
