Terror fears driving Jews out of France: Report

By Postmedia Network | Toronto Sun

Call it the French Rejection.

More than 5,000 French Jews pulled up stakes and moved to Israel in the past year following a spike in anti-Semitism and terrorism fears, according to a new report.

The 2015 Paris terror attacks on Charlie Hebdo magazine and a Jewish supermarket where four shoppers were murdered has been a catalyst, the Jewish Agency of Israel said in its report.

More than 40,000 French Jews have emigrated since 2006.
