Netanyahu Says Israel Gives French Jews Haven From Terrorism

Updated on

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered sanctuary to French Jews who want to leave the country because of the threat of Islamic extremists, and arranged for those killed in a Paris kosher supermarket to be buried in Israel.

“You have the right to live secure and peaceful lives with full rights wherever you desire,” Netanyahu told hundreds of French Jews at the Grand Synagogue in Paris, where he attended a memorial prayer service. He said French Jews have “the opportunity to join their brothers and sisters in the historic homeland of Israel.”
