Why is this not so reassuring?

From jpost:

Israeli officials have asked the French government for help in protecting some 4,000 Jews living in Tunisia and Morocco, fearing they could come under attack in the event of a US-led war against Iraq.

Army Radio said a Foreign Ministry official made the request on a recent trip to Paris. Of particular concern are the remaining Jewish communities on the island of Djerba and in Casablanca, who could be vulnerable to intense anti-Western sentiment in the event of a war.
