Report shows 38% rise in European anti-Semitism

(JNS.org) There was a 38-percent rise in violent antisemitic attacks in Europe from 2013 to 2014, according to a report released last week by the Kantor Center for the Study of Contemporary European Jewry at Tel Aviv University. The report records 766 violent antisemitic incidents in 2014, ranging from assaults with weapons to vandalism against Jewish property, compared to 554 such incidents in 2013. Jews feel like “they are facing an explosion of hatred toward them as individuals, their communities, and Israel, as a Jewish state,” wrote the report’s researchers, pointing to the convergence of anti-Zionism and antisemitism.
