The Jews left Europe because...hmmm...the Nazis had just tried to wipe them out and they had just watched all of Europe twiddle their thumbs while this happened?

Because governments like Vichy France proved that the Nazis were not the only ones that were anti-Semitic? They could have stayed, but why would they want to?

Instead, they fought for a country that they truly deserved, and they moved there, away from the Anti Semitism of Europe.

I am sure you will agree that people would rather live in a country where they are loved by its citizens and hated by its neighbors than vice versa.
