You're late. French Jews have been leaving France for years because they're tired of being targeted and no longer feel safe.


Take note Americans - this is what happens when you put people new to the country ahead of your citizens.

Wasn't there some Iraq and other vets killed in Las Vegas?

Yep:

But I'm sure many will say this isn't ironic nor indicative of things wrong in the USA...

I don't believe it matters which country. With a huge migration of a more primitive culture the government can do little. France has certainly tried to add to its educational curriculum exercises and lessons to defuse tensions. It's like King Canute's efforts against the tides.

no, what he or she is saying, that they left those people in and now they're paying for it.

Very sad, the whole thing...people are trusting by nature...and want to help people, but when those that your helping bite the hand that feeds them, it's time to be smart and realize, primitive culture and open borders do not mix.

Who the help moved into Spain after the Muslims were chased out?

I always have a hard time to keep up on all the history changes and such.

What is Spain doing these days, anyhow?

I always heard Spain was as broke as Greece.

A couple of deplorables to the EU, or something.

Go further back to the Vichy. They were worse than the Germans. France is a first world country. So it's either suck it up and deal with it or take a step down in one's expectations of standards of living and move out.

France’s 475,000 Jews represent less than 1 percent of the country’s population. Yet last year, according to the French Interior Ministry, 51 percent of all racist attacks targeted Jews. The statistics in other countries, including Great Britain, are similarly dismal.

Yeah, but Jews typically leave a much larger footprint than their numbers would suggest. They’re rarely an invisible minority.
