Tel Aviv University report shows rise in anti-Semitism, reduction in violence

Published: 04.27.14, 13:34 / Israel News

An annual report by Tel Aviv University researchers shows that violent attacks around the world against Jews dropped in 2013 but warns that anti-Semitism is becoming more widespread in Europe.

 

The report, released Sunday, recorded 554 violent anti-Semitic acts in 2013, including attacks on people and vandalism against synagogues, cemeteries and other Jewish institutions.

 

The figures showed a 19 percent reduction compared to 2012, when a deadly shooting at a French Jewish school sparked a series of copycat attacks.

 

It said that anti-Semitic attitudes are becoming more acceptable, particularly among European youth, amid a rise in popularity of extremist parties in Hungary, Greece and elsewhere.
