6. Sobel says that millions of Russian Jews moved to North Africa in the early 1880's. Abramowitz' people went to Quebec when the CNA was closed later in the 1880's -- as in IOW there is a large Jewish community in Montreal. "Numidia" is a Jewish homeland of sorts on the site of IOW Libya. (It was located in Tunisia for most of the original For All Nails posts but moved on the advice of Jonathan Edelstein for his vignette Page 93.) There are a few Zionists in Palestine, but with less anti-Semitism and another safe haven the motivation is much smaller. The Germans are actually philo-Semitic, while the British have tended to back Muslim states against the Germans.
