The annual report on anti-Semitism released last week called it "worrying" that the number of Internet attacks, including texts, photos and videos, jumped from 26 in 2011 to 82 in 2012.

 

One reason, the report says, was the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians and the pro-Israeli stance of the Czech government.

 

It says there were no physical attacks against Jews in the republic registered last year and no direct threats against them.

 

The report concludes that the situation regarding anti-Semitism has been "very good" in the Czech Republic compared with other European countries such as Hungary and Greece.
