Jews are fleeing terror-hit Paris because of growing anti-Semitism in France, one of Britain’s most influential Jewish journalists said today, the Daily Mail reports.
Stephen Pollard, editor of the Jewish Chronicle, spoke out after an Islamic terrorist took six people hostage and held them captive in a Kosher supermarket in the French capital.
On Saturday afternoon police ordered all shops in a famous Jewish neighborhood in central Paris to close.
Pollard said the terror attack, linked to the massacre at the office of Charlie Hebdo, will force more French Jews to flee the country. Many are moving to Britain or to Israel, according to a report published in the newspaper last year.
