Jews fleeing Europe

Joe Gandelman reports that Jews are fleeing France to Israel.

Meanwhile, a spokesman for the Jewish Agency said a report compiled by the agency had found 30,000 out of France's 575 000 Jews were considering leaving for Israel and he characterized French Jews' situation as increasingly "difficult." This comes on the heels of French Justice Minister Dominique Perben reporting that 180 anti-Jewish acts had been recorded so far this year.

It should be noted that as citizens of the European Union, they can move freely to any European county. They choose not to do so.
