Anti-Semitism Spurs More European Jews to Flee

Nearly one-third of European Jews are considering emigrating because of rising anti-Semitism, and 25 percent of Jews in Europe are afraid to appear in public with cloths or symbols that would identify them as Jews, a new report reveals.

There was no indication of which countries were the desired new homes of those wanting to flee, but Israel presumably is high on the list.

The study released in Israel prior to International Holocaust Remembrance Day on Jan. 27 also shows that social websites on the Internet serve as a platform for rising anti-Semitism.

“Social networks have the growing ability to mobilize crowds to attend events, and [have increasing] influence in the political public sphere. They have also become a means of communication reaching hundreds of millions of people, also on aspects related to the disclosure of anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism,” according to the report.

As earlier reported here, three pig heads were mailed to Rome’s main synagogue and to the Jewish Museum of Rome, which is displaying en exhibit concerning the Holocaust.

Naftali Bennett, who serves as Minister of Diaspora Affairs, said, “Like the efforts to delegitimize Israel, anti-Semitism is both a disgrace and a blot on every society. Trying to understand their ‘causes’ legitimizes them. There is no reason or justification for anti-Semitism.”

“Despite what people might think, anti-Semitism does not strengthen our ties with Jews overseas,” he said. “For every Jew who makes Aliya as a result of anti-Semitism, there are many others who cut ties with Judaism and the Jewish way of life.”

  1. I live in an area with practically no other Jews. In fact I am a Jew by choice. I’m getting ready for shacharit now, by myself with no minyan and not likely to ever have one here. My own children have betrayed our family, and now my wife clings to them. I basically have no family. Evangelical Christians are not nice people like they are often portrayed, few are any good at all when they realize there is no chance you will worship their god. They ruined one career then my business. They vandalize my property. I am blamed for it for daring to upset them. Point: I don’t blame any Jew for wanting to make aliya or flee persecution and have a sane place to live without savages. But I’ll be damned if they will run me out. Make it hurt them before you go.

    they are welcome in canada

  3. ------- ben David says:

    It’s time to come home folks.

  4. sad turn events but not surprising…

  5. Samuel Ramos says:

    Yes, since the collapse of the Soviet Union, which was no prize either, anti-semitism in Europe has been on the rise for decades. We must remain ever vigilant to this ever present Evil before it spreads like a poison afflicting many races and religions.

  6. Les Le Gear says:

    No future for Jews in anti-Semitic Europe. Thanks to continued hatred by the churchgoing (and church taught Jew hatred) Europeans and the influx and rapid increase of savage Jew hating muslims. The European Jews should mvd en masse to Israel and let the muslim savages have Europe. The Europeans deserve them.

  7. Israel, the US and Canada await you…..welcome

  8. abe zelcer says:

    It is time for all jews to leave the catholic muslim cesspool called europe.The church started hatred of the jews which is ingrained in europe. It will never stop. They were taught we killed their god. Let the muslim hordes kill them. They deserve each other.
    Spit on them and leave.
    Go to Israel, canada or usa.

  9. abe zelcer says:

    You’re a stupid,stupid,bigoted individual that is in dire need of being put out of his misery.

  10. I thought that is very astute. Europe turns its back again on Jews, so let them go to Israel, Australia or New Zealand.

  11. Bob Smith says:

    Robert, we’re you born stupid or are you this way as a result of really stupid parents? Or perhaps your school….

  12. Rick S. Geiger says:

    So, 69 years after the end of the Holocaust, the Europeans are once again on the rampage against the Jews, but now not only in Europe, but also in Israel. And we have strong cadre of Jew haters in the United States, including many official department of the US government that are aiding and abetting racism and attacks against Jews…. Yeah, we have made great progress…

  13. Joyce Oxfeld says:

    I saw some awful ignorant comments on Facebook awhile back and de activated my account for that and other reasons. I don't know whether some of these sites really respond to reports of really out right hate posts or not. There are more subtle ones as well.

  14. Danuta Glendenning feel free to come to Brazil as well! Im christian with jewish ancestry and there is no better place for a jew to live other than Brazil. Im really into jewsih studies and perhaps I might convert.
