French Jews on arrival in Israel say:
"'In France I was worried, in Israel I feel safe'"
"Two planes carrying 600 new immigrants from France land at Ben-Gurion Airport, marking biggest aliyah event since beginning of year. More than 3,000 olim expected to arrive from France by end of 2007"

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?
