600 French Jews to Arrive on Mass Aliyah Wednesday

From Arutz Sheva:

A group of 600 Jews from France will be making Aliya (immigrate to Israel)
on two chartered planes Wednesday, arriving at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion airport.
The two planes, one El Al and one Israir, will be taking off from Paris and
Marseille. The mass Aliyah was coordinated by the French AMI organization,
modeled after the Nefesh B’Nefesh organization’s Aliyah assistance, as well as
the Jewish Agency for Israel.
This year has seen a ten percent increase in French

Yeah, this isn't news. Jews don't feel too loved in France. Remember Ilan Halimi?
His kidnappers, torturers and killers said they didn't do it for anti-semitic motives. They said they did it because Jews are rich, and Ilan Halimi was Jewish.
But no, that's not anti-semitism now, is it?

Congratulations to the new olim.

I posted additional pictures and articles at:

May the aliyah from France (and the rest of the world) grow and
bring more Jews back to their homeland, Eretz Yisrael.

Shabbat Shalom,

And so all French are therefore antisemitic?

I hardly expect murderers to speak sense or acknowledge their own racism. We surely mustn't return such racism with blanket implications about the entire population of France?

Wouldn't such racism be equal to stating that all Jews stand condemned by the record of such as Genrikh Grigor'evich Yagoda?
