The Boats of Cherbourg was an Israeli military operation which took place on 24 December 1969, and involved the escape of five unarmed Sa'ar 3 class boats from the French port of Cherbourg. The boats had been paid for by the Israeli government but had not been delivered due to the French arms embargo in 1969.Today the reason that that many Jews won't go there is the Muslim violence and the antisemitism in the streets.

A synagogue near the Bastille was under police guard on Monday after more than 100 youths chanting "Israel murderer" tried to storm the building following a march demanding an end to Israeli air strikes on Gaza.Violence is simmering beneath the surface and periodically, more and more frequently escaping.
Several thousand protesters took part in Sunday's march, some wearing facepaint in the colours of the Palestinian flag and carrying banners saying: "Stop killing children."
As the demonstration broke up, a large group headed to the Abravanel synagogue where about 150 people had gathered for a memorial service for three Israeli teenagers found murdered in the West Bank.
Neighbours said the protesters had picked up chairs from a cafe nearby and tried to break through a police barrier outside the synagogue, where worshippers remained trapped for several hours.
Six police and two members of the Jewish community were injured, and six protesters were arrested. (The Guardian)
I wouldn't want to live there. Believe me, it's safer and more pleasant in Israel even during this war.
