Britain will be next?

With French Jews fleeing to Israel even before last week's events, one can only wonder whether Europe will fall like dominoes, and which country will be next. I have argued that it will be Britain. Many British Jews apparently agree. A survey shows that more than half of British Jewry believes that it has no future in Britain.

A quarter of Jews in Britain have considered leaving the country in the last two years and well over half feel they have no long term future in Europe, according to a survey published on Wednesday.
Additionally, anti-Semitic beliefs are widely prevalent among the wider public with 45 percent of Britons agreeing with at least one anti-Semitic sentiment, the YouGov poll for the Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA) group found.
The survey comes a week after four French Jews were killed in an attack on a Kosher supermarket in Paris which led to police stepping up security at synagogues and other Jewish venues across Britain.

According to the CAA's poll of 2,230 British Jews, 58 percent felt Jews might have no long-term future in Europe, 45 percent felt their family was threatened by Islamist extremism and more than half had witnessed more anti-Semitism in the last two years than ever before.
The survey of the wider public found a quarter of Britons believed "Jews chase money more than other British people", and one in six agreed that "Jews think they are better than other people" and "Jews have too much power in the media". 
In all, 45 percent of the 3,411 questioned believed at least one anti-Semitic statement shown to them to be true.

Maybe Carmelli - one of the best (if not the best) Kosher bakeries I have ever been in - would consider relocating to Jerusalem? (See the picture). That would be awesome.

And the population of UK Jews is not only far smaller but they're less hardened by constant attacks. It really won't take much to get half of them to flee. A mass shooting here, an MP screaming for concentration camps there (probably David Ward) and you'll see thousands starting to plan to emigrate. Keeping in mind that no matter how bad things get, just like in the 1930's thousands will never leave.

I pray this never happens. I really don't want my country to become like France is now.
