New Poll Says Most Think Judeo-Phobia is on the Rise


The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights is scheduled to announce the results of a survey on discrimination, hate crimes, and Judeo-phobia. An initial announcement states, "The findings show that three-quarters of the nearly 6,000 respondents feel that antisemitism has worsened in the past five years, particularly in relation to antisemitic comments and hate speech online. Other issues covered include antisemitic violence and discrimination."

The full results will be presented on November 8th at a special press conference in Vienna, Austria. The date was chosen to coincide with the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the pre-arranged anti-Jewish rioting that took place in t Nazi Germany and sections of Austria.
