"Anti-Semitism Denial must Come to an End"

World Zionist Organization Counter Anti-Semitism Department Director Yaakov Hagoel related to the recent rise in European anti-Semitism, "The phenomenon where world Jewry leaders and Israeli diplomats deny the anti-Semitism rising around them must end. In the last eight years there have been 50\% more anti-Semitic events, such as the recent request of radical Hungarian right wing party Jobbik for a list of local high-ranking and influential Jewish officials. Now is the time to take action and not be complacent."
