Just saying.. Buy a place in Israel and the French government cannot get to your life savings anymore.. Think again about why so many many aliyah for 2/3 years?
2. 1There are other tax free states

and they do not attract so many Jews.
3. A balancing view
Baruch ,   Paris, France   (01.15.16)
Far from me to be the Devil's advocate, but up to 30% of French Jewish olim return to France within five years, in part because Israeli professional associations, especially in medical fields, fear competition and throw up legal barriers which prevent their French counterparts from being licensed to work in Israel (where salaries are 30 pct lower than in France and prices are 30 pct higher. Thousands of French Jews now also go to Quebec and to Britain.

as I am. Nothing to do with anti-semitism. French people are so polite, so lovely... a great country. Fanatic Muslims are a problem to everybody, to good Muslims too. They have their crazy haredim as well.
