Should Jews leave Spain? Following last Thursday’s jihadist attack in Barcelona, Barcelona’s chief rabbi, Meir Bar- Hen, told a reporter that he is urging his community members to flee Spain for Israel.
“I tell my congregants: Don’t think we’re here for good, and I encourage them to buy property in Israel,” he said.
“This place is lost,” he warns, adding, “Don’t repeat the mistakes of Algerian Jews, of Venezuelan Jews. Better [get out] early than late. Europe is lost.”
The Federation of Jewish Communities of Spain rejected Bar-Hen’s warning. It issued a statement last Thursday saying its member have “full confidence in the security forces who work daily to prevent fanatics and radical Muslims from inflicting pain and chaos on our cities.”
