And where would you like them to move, Urikeh?

Not America: your government does not admit people from Western European countries as seekers of political or religious asylum. Those days are long over.

Every Jewish cemetary should have cameras. There are obviously neo nazis but also a very rapidly growing muslem population. Even if European governments accept very tough measures against these groups (which they don't) there is no Jewish future there. What they don't realize to the full extent that there would not be any future for non muslem population there as well just after the Jews

Not only as #3 pointed out are they deceased, but this is actually a reason for Jews to remain. Even without antisemitism, where there aren't any Jews to maintain cemeteries the chances of them being neglected or "stolen" are much greater.
