Kosher market attack deepens fears among European Jews

The killing of four French Jews in last week's hostage standoff at a Paris kosher market has deepened the fears among European Jewish communities shaken by rising anti-Semitism and feeling vulnerable due to poor security and a large number of potential soft targets.

In the wake of the attacks, which follow deadly strikes on a Belgian Jewish Museum and a Jewish school in southwestern France, Israeli leaders have called on European Jews to immigrate to the Jewish state. But European Jews are deeply ambivalent about leaving, and their community leaders, along with top politicians, have urged people to stay in their homelands.

"The European Jewry is the oldest European minority and we have our experience of surviving under all possible circumstances," Moshe Kantor, president of the European Jewish Congress, told The Associated Press. "We will not give up our motherland, which is called Europe. We will not stop the history of European Jewry, that is for sure."

Kantor called for increased security at Jewish sites, concerted action against anti-Semitism across the continent and better coordination of intelligence forces against religious extremism. But he acknowledged that if any Jewish European does not feel safe, "I say you should leave in this case."

2. There are similar attacks in Israel just about every day.

 

The safest place I can think of for Jews is the Americas.

9. Huh?

 

Israel is pretty much always at "threat level orange" because of car bombers, suicide bombers, etc. There are many reasons for Jews to make aliyah (emigrate to Israel), but safety isn't one of them.

5. Not really, and that's your fault

because every day you make it a point to obscure the differences between Muslims and extremists. It's what you do here.

10. Who should leave, and to where?

The extremists? That'd be good. The Jewish people? Why and to where?

8. This is indeed a very disturbing situation.

At last, people are talking about it, at least.
