Great, one Israeli Mr. Burg moves to France and it's a big "affair." 800 French Jews just mmoved to Israel and no American paper including the Forward bothered to mention it. This year it's expected that a total of 3000 French Jews will move to Israel. Many other Jews will move to the US. Is it possible that these French Jews know something that Burg doesn't?
