100,000 Jews Have Fled Paris Since 2013.

Jews are fleeing terror-hit Paris because of growing anti-Semitism in France, one of Britain's most influential Jewish journalists said today.

Stephen Pollard, editor of the Jewish Chronicle, spoke out after an Islamic terrorist took six people hostage and held them captive in a Kosher supermarket in the French capital.

This afternoon police ordered all shops in a famous Jewish neighborhood in central Paris to close.

The mayor's office in Paris announced the closure of shops along the Rosiers street in Paris' Marais neighborhood, in the heart of the tourist district and less than a mile away from the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo where 12 people were killed on Wednesday.

1. False headline

It is estimated that 100,000 may have left France in the last 18 months, according to the article.

And there are no studies or data cited to back that up.

2. it's the Daily Mail

What else is expected from such a rag? I have no idea why people embarrass themselves using it as a source.

5. It was speculation by a conservative think-tank founder with no time-frame

and figures that don't back it up in the short term:

Haim Korsia, 51, who was elected Chief Rabbi of France last Sunday, will preside over a shrinking Jewish community. From a Jewish population of 500,000 or so - the largest Jewish community in the European Union - it may quickly fall to 400,000, or even less.

According to Natan Sharansky, the Jewish Agency Chairman, 2,254 French Jews completed aliyah during the first five months of 2014, against only 580 last year; a staggering 289 per cent increase. By December 31 this year, the total may be well over 5,000. Not since the Second World War has a Western country provided Israel with such immigration rates.

Moreover, a second group of French Jews is engaging in "gradual, informal immigration" - without applying for citizenship, they buy apartments in Israel, register their children at Israeli universities, commute between France and Israel for business, or come as "frequent visitors" on retiring.

"At the end of the day, many of them are likely to stay as fully fledged immigrants", a French-Israeli sociologist said. Actual French immigration to Israel may thus be closer to 6,000 or 7,000 a year.

Obviously it would take many years, even at 7,000 a year, for over 100,000 to leave. Even adding in emigration to the rest of the EU, or elsewhere, to say over 100,000 are leaving in 18 months is ridiculous.

Maybe the numbers are suspect but it's sad and scary Jews are leaving a European nation because they feel vulnerable and unwelcome.

4. This is baloney.

Why didn't he claim 1 Million had left. If you are going to make things up, make it spectacular!
