VIDEO: Jews Flee France Amid Worst Anti-Semitic Violence Since the Holocaust

Recall my blog post from June, citing the New York Times, "Number of French Jews Emigrating to Israel Rises."

Now, according to the Huffington Post, the number of Jews making aliyah to Israel has skyrocketed, "France's Jews Flee As Rioters Burn Paris Shops, Attack Synagogue":

More than a thousand Jews have made aliyah (the term used when Jews immigrate to Israel) in the past 10 days, according to the Israeli government.

"I came because of anti-Semitism,” said teary-eyed Veronique Rivka Buzaglo, one of 430 immigrants who arrived from France the day before. "You see it in the eyes of people.

I see it in everything," she told HuffPost. Buzaglo says nothing would have stopped her from becoming an Israeli citizen this week - not even the rocket sirens frequently blaring in the south of the country, where she plans to live.
Be sure to click through for the photos. It's like Kristallnacht.

At the video, French women exclaim," I've seen nothing like this in 41 years" and "We are at war!"
