Shifra Hoffman, who made Aliyah in 1986 and founded Shuva - The Israel Emergency Aliya Movement, calls on “Jews to go home!”

“They’re telling us to go home, and if we don’t listen to our prophets, we’ll end up having to listen to them.”

That’s right, you heard it! Shifra says that “…while anti-Semitic groups are sprouting like a virus in the U.S. and Europe, we can either head the call G-d and our ancestors, and return to the Land of Israel or they can wait till we don’t have a choice anymore or worse yet, till we don’t have that option.”

Shifra talked about detention camps that are being constructed in the U.S. so that the government can detain mass amounts of people in case of an emergency.

“The organization that’s behind this is called FEMA… They’ve been recruiting soldiers who have the capacity to detain large amounts of people… For those of us who survived the Holocaust, there’s a saying: ‘Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.’ Hopefully, we won’t have to learn the hard way.”

“Scare tactics” you say. Not necessarily. People are getting fed up with Jews. They blame Israel for the “Palestinian” problem, for the economy’s downfall, and a million other things. Our place isn’t in the galut. Time is of the essence. We need to come home.”  

“I hear people complaining how bad it’s getting in France and England. Well, I have something to tell you: If you remain, don’t complain!”
