Report: Increase in severity of anti-Semitic attacks in 2006
There has been a marked increase in the severity of anti-Semitic attacks and in the number of violent attacks in 2006, in comparison with the previous year, according to statistics presented Sunday at the yearly press conference held by the Coordination Forum for Countering
Anti-Semitism.

 

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni responded to these statistics, saying, "We are all part of the same war that is taking place on three different fronts: As Israelis we are fighting for the existence of the State of Israel; as people, we are part of the struggle of the Jewish people against anti-Semitism that is rearing its head; and as moderates, we are fighting extremists."
