Anti-Semitism on rise in Europe
The tragic murders at a Jewish day school in Toulouse, France, are the most significant anti-Semitic attack in Europe in recent years [AFP]
A report by the EU Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) has shown that anti-Semitism has got worse across Europe over the past five years, facilitated by social media and file-sharing websites.
The report, which was released on Friday, was timed to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the Kristallnacht pogroms in Nazi Germany.
Based on a poll of European Jews, the study has found that more than three-quarters of those questioned believe anti-Semitism is on the rise in their home countries and close to one-third have considered emigrating because they do not feel safe.
