Maybe it's the absence of burning cars ...

In the midst of the crisis in the Middle East, Jews are emigrating to Israel in record numbers. Recently, 650 French Jews arrived to start new lives in Israel, in spite of the violence. From the Jerusalem Post:

Julien Daham, 29, who arrived from Nice, agreed that Israel was the place he felt most at home. He said he planned to move to Ashkelon, a city recently put in range of Hamas-fired Kassams, a situation that didn't deter him.
"I don't feel unsafe here," he said, describing France as more dangerous than Israel. "The streets are safer here, even with all the attacks."
