Internet attacks against Czech Jews on rise

Though annual report suggests a rise in Internet anti-Semitism, Czech Republic compared with other countries is relatively 'quiet.'

A new study by Prague's Jewish community has registered a significant increase of attacks against Jews on the Internet for the second straight year.



The annual report on anti-Semitism released Monday said the number of Internet attacks, including texts, photos and videos, jumped to 156 in 2013 from 82 in 2012.


The report said the pro-Israeli stance of the Czech government was among the reasons for the attacks.


Besides the Internet attacks, it said anti-Semitism in the Czech Republic remains at a relatively low level with one physical attack registered last year and three attacks on Jewish property.


The report concluded that the situation regarding anti-Semitism has been "quiet" in the Czech Republic compared with other European countries such as Hungary and France.
