Is it time for Jews to leave 'Francalgerie'?
The traumatic events of 13 July and again on 22 July, when Parisian Jews were forced to barricade themselves inside synagogues to avoid a near-pogrom by angry and violent pro-Palestinian demonstrators, has prompted professor Shmuel Trigano to ask in his Times of Israel blog: is it time for Jews to leave France? In the face of official indifference and media misrepresentation, history is repeating itself for a community that only a generation ago was forced to leave North Africa. France has become Francalgerie.
