The Jews of France: Should They Stay or Should They Go (to Israel)?

Benjamin Netanyahu requests the pleasure of their company:
On Saturday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on French Jews to move to Israel. “To all the Jews of France, all the Jews of Europe, I would like to say that Israel is not just the place in whose direction you pray, the state of Israel is your home,” Netanyahu said.
France's  P.M., however, is urging them to stay where they are:
"If 100,000 French people of Spanish origin were to leave, I would never say that France is not France anymore. But if 100,000 Jews leave, France will no longer be France. The French Republic will be judged a failure,” [Prime Minister Mauel] Valls said ahead of a memorial rally in honor of those killed in France in recent days.
What are 100,000 Jews compared to the multi-millions of Muslims? A pittance. A handful. Not nearly enough to make France France and prevent its failure.

How do you say, "It's too late, baby" en Francais?

Update: "Il est trop tard, bébé"?
