Deputy Knesset Speaker Nurit Korn (Likud) said tonight (Tuesday) 02/16/2016 in a meeting of the Lobby to Promote the Immigration and Absorption of French-speaking Jews, "It’s an auspicious time. We are in a period that is unparalleled in terms of the anti-Semitism and violence being perpetrated against Jews in Europe in general and France in particular."
"We must act for a better and more efficient immigration and absorption of Diaspora Jews in Israel," Koren said, adding, "Israel is a country that welcomes new immigrants and there is tremendous importance in investing all the resources needed to bring the Jews to Israel and absorb them in the best manner possible here.
"Will the Knesset lobby also focus on the bureaucratic difficulties of foreign citizens already living in Israel, who have no one to stand at their side? Setting up an effective lobby to help them is still a long way off.
