Jews and all minorities (as well as majority populations) thrive better within a system that focuses on individual rights and liberty, protection of property rights and the free market system in general, not on ”group rights”, egalitarianism, and classic Marxist class warfare politics and socialism in general.
And I would add, especially since the election of a Marxist to the presidency who seems intent on placating the country’s 5-6 million Muslim population, Jew s will indeed feel the pinch. That’s the inconvenient truth about socialism, the nanny state, group politics and multiculturalism. This type of governing mentality is always elevating one group over the other for whatever the reason at the moment. I suspect that not only 5000 Jews, but tens of thousands of Jews are seriously thinking about leaving for safer shores.
NOTE: This new president says that he “hates the wealthy”, that shows you the mentality of the Left, always seeking out one portion of society to demonize and punish, while rewarding their constituents who vote from them. Class warfare is the bread and butter of the statist.
According to the Jewish Agency for Israel, over 5,000 Jews from throughout France attended a fair in the heart of Paris about immigrating to Israel. The fair was attended by the Chairman of the Jewish Agency, former member of Knesset, Soviet expatriate and dissident Natan Sharansky. “I cannot recall having seen such a massive number of people interested in aliyah [immigration] since the days when lines of people stretched out of the Israeli embassy in Moscow,” said Sharansky. The fair took place the same day as the election that rousted Nicholas Sarkozy, a reliable anti-Iran voice in Europe, from power, replacing him with the far less reliable Francois Hollande, a socialist with heavy ties to anti-Israel populations.
