News the HP Doesn't Cover: French Jews Leaving

The Huffington Post missed this story, probably because the editorial staff was too busy finding something else to write about Burnat's detainment:
"A new report from the Jewish Community Protection Service says that anti-Semitic attacks in France increased by 58% from 2011 to 2012. 

The biggest attack in 2012 was that of Mohamed Merah, who shot dead seven people, including three children and a rabbi, outside a school in Toulouse. Merah’s killings, the report says, led to a spike of anti-Semitic attacks in the days following.

The increase in anti-Semitism has led to an exodus of French Jews who have moved across the Channel to English shores, with St. John’s Wood Synagogue in London establishing French-language Shabbat services to fulfill a growing demand.  "
But, you know, the Jewish Community Protection Service is probably lying, because Jews always play the victim in order to get ahead.
