What do you do when the society you're living in, through no fault of your own, decides they hate you? France is becoming a dangerous place for Jews, and many of them are moving to Israel.
Vatikai said that a report compiled by the agency had found 30 000 out of France's 575 000-strong Jewish community were considering immigrating to Israel.
"We are multiplying our efforts to encourage in this case, particularly with an information campaign," he said.
Jews living in France say that they are victims of a growing tide of anti-Semitic crime.
French Justice Minister Dominique Perben said last week that 180 anti-Jewish acts had been recorded so far this year, including cases of assault, arson and verbal insults.
Americans in Saudi Arabia aren't having such a good time of it either. I heard on NPR this morning (I don't have time to go link-hunting right now, but if someone comments or e-mails me with a good one, I'll post it here) that there has been a wave of violent attacks against Americans there. But there isn't a mass movement of Americans out of Saudi Arabia, surprisingly. Instead, they're fortifying the American-only compounds they live in with more fences, barbed wire, and armed guards.
Unpleasant and scary, either way.
