The Immigration Debate in Europe and the Jewish Problem

By Barry A. Kosmin

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), April 2007

The author discusses attitudes towards immigration from a European versus American perspective. Classically, immigration is seen as a threat to demographic future and cultural integrity of the collectivity, be it, Jews, Americans or Europeans. Whereas immigration, legal and illegal, into the U.S. does not appear to be of great concern to the American Jewish community, the situation in Europe is different, in part because most immigrants today come from Muslim countries.
