If every Jew in the world DID heed his clarion call to emigrate to Israel, then the only winners would be Islamic fundamentalists.

ISIS and Al Qaeda would absolutely love every Jew fleeing their homes and heading to Israel. It would be the greatest imaginable PR coup for them.

The single most dangerous place for Jews to live outside of Israel, statistically, is New York City.

More have been killed by terrorism there this century than any other country.

How so?

Well cast your minds back to September 11, 2001.

At least 270 Jews are known to have died in the attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11. Possibly as many as 400.

That’s between 10 and 15 percent of all the victims.

I don’t remember hearing anyone, least of all Benjamin Netanyahu, declare then that every Jew in New York should immediately quit the city and go and live in Israel.

No, what I saw and heard was the whole city, regardless of ethnicity or religion, come together as one to stand up against this hideous attack on their freedoms.

The Jewish community, which totals over a million people in New York - making it the largest outside of Israel itself – stood firm and resilient.
