Two years after former prime minister Ariel Sharon caused a scandal in France by calling upon French Jews to make aliyah, Olmert issued the same call in a more subtle manner: "We love you, and it's good to know you are around and even more so when you visit us and even more so when you come to live with us. You have wonderful children. They should come to live at home. You have a wonderful country but they have a home and they should live at home. Send them on Birthright and Masa and let them come again and again until they come to live. France has great universities but so does Israel. For us, there is no other land. There is one state named Israel, the state of the Jews and I hope that one day all the Jews will live there in security and peace."
