Just like the good old days...

...you know, back in the early nineteen forties...

According to French government statistics, anti-Semitic acts have soared in recent years, with the number reported between January and May 2015 increasing 84 percent compared with the same period in 2014.

To reassure the Jewish community, 700 soldiers have been deployed to patrol outside synagogues, schools and community centres.
You think this sort of thing can happen in Paris... but Montreal or Toronto are somehow magically immune?

Ever wonder what the Syrian version of the "Welcome Wagon" is like? You think there are fragrant toiletries and tasty snacks? Maybe you should ask a French Jew.

old white guy says.......it has always amazed me how so many people hate the Jews. one would think that the less than 15 million Jews worldwide controlled the entire population of over 7 billion, therefore the hatred. We know that is not possible so I ask again why the hatred? if Jews were a species of bird they would be declared endangered and protected from the 7 billion plus. Tell me what ^percentage of the worlds population do the Jews make up? is it 0.00000006%? or less.

The worst that can happen is the Euro Jewish diaspora will leave the tyranny and oppression of Europe behind, move here above board as fully vetted/declared immigrants coming in the front door, assimilate as Canadians and become productive enterprising citizens - just like my next door neighbors.
