Envoy: Growing anti-Semitism in Serbia

(Video) Israeli Ambassador Arthur Koll 'appalled' after popular singer blasts Jews on reality show

VIDEO - Israel's ambassador in Serbia has warned of growing anti-Semitism after a popular singer publicly blasted Jews on a reality show.


Singer Maja Nikolic was expelled last week from the "Dvor" (Court) reality show on Serbia's Pink television after she said she "disliked Jews."


Nikolic also faces possible criminal charges for spreading racial hatred.

Ambassador Arthur Koll said Monday he is "appalled" by the incident. "Lately an increase of anti-Semitic incidents has been recorded in Serbia, this being the latest and most visible one," he said.


Koll urged the "full attention of relevant state and civic organs."


Serbia recently has seen a rise in right-wing extremism, including violence against foreigners and anti-Semitic incidents.
