Jews have historically been treated very well in China and India. The fact that these two countries' cultures are not rooted in either Christianity or Islam is the reason for that, since all anti-Jewish motivations originate in Christianity or Islam.

It is true that most Jews have made aliyah from the above two countries but that is more for economic reasons than anything else. Facing a choice between a developed, modern nation like Israel and a bureaucratic, tropical-disease-infested, overcrowded nation like India, it is not surprising that Indian Jews chose to migrate. If India or China were to ever become economically developed nations, and if China were to morph from dictatorship to democracy some day, I see no reason why Jews cannot immigrate to these nations. India does hold one wild card and that is its large Muslim minority. It is not as restive as France's Muslim minority though.

Japan has also treated Jews well but historically Japanese society has always been opposed to immigration of any type, so I don't expect Jews to move there in droves. Actually, China is a little like that as well. India is the opposite, but economically not an attractive place to move to at all.

France's interests are with the West though. It's tempting to dance with savages but it never ends well.

Not always so soft. The Dreyfus Affair?

That's an excuse for anti-Semitism. Car rammings, knifings and murder of athletes should "erode" reputations.

Remains to be seen. Alienating a highly educated minority is not a good idea.

Do you wish to emulate Latin America? It seems like a dystopia to me.

Has merits though our government could be run more efficiently with a relocation closer to the DC area.

I went to a breakout session on the subject of Jewry outside of Israel, U.S. and Canada given by my temple. The speech advocating the rebuilding of Jewish infrastructure in Ukraine, Moldova, Poland and Russia was eloquent; and utterly irresponsible. I made my views known in the breakout session.

Probably because the political right is full of anti-semites.

Latin America is safe for Jews as well.
