An organizer of Sunday’s march in Paris to honor the victims of the Islamist attacks in France said the turnout could surpass one million.
The slaying of four Jews at a Paris kosher market may cause a substantial increase in the number of Jews who will immigrate to Israel this year, Jewish Agency Chairman Natan Sharansky said.
Netanyahu acceded on Sunday to the request of the families of the victims of the terrorist attack at the Jewish supermarket in Paris and instructed all relevant government officials to assist in bringing them for burial in Israel.
Both brothers who carried out the attack against satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo traveled to Yemen in 2011 and had weapons training in the deserts of Marib, an al Qaeda stronghold.
Netanyahu coupled a show of solidarity with France on Sunday with a reminder to shaken French Jews that Israel is keen to welcome them as immigrants.
