European Jewish communities are in serious danger

The European Jewish Congress (EJC) is calling on European governments and the European Union to launch a campaign against intolerance and anti-Semitism. The Congress reports anti-Semitism is on the rise in Europe, and some Jewish communities are in serious danger. For example, recently a government-funded Catholic school in Antwerp hosted a ‘Palestine Day’, which included an activity for children in which they were invited to throw replicas of Jewish and Israeli soldiers into two large tanks as part of an activity entitled “Throw the Jewish soldiers into the sea.”  Newly elected mayor of Malmo,  Sweden, Ilmar Reepalu explains the wave of anti-Semitsm is “an understandable consequence of the Israel-Palestine conflict."
