EJC President, Dr. Moshe Kantor comments on antisemitism report

European Jewish Congress President, Dr. Moshe Kantor's responded to the CST Antisemitic Incidents Report 2016,  which was published Wednesday, stating that:

"It is a very worrying phenomenon that anti-Semitism appears to be on the rise across Europe, and the UK is no different. These results demonstrate clearly that anti-Semitism requires no outside factors and without strong action by authorities will continue to grow. We hope the fact that the UK has officially adopted a definition of anti-Semitism will mean that perpetrators will no longer act with immunity or impunity." 

The number of anti-Semitic incidents in Britain rose by more than a third to record levels in 2016, according to data released Wednesday by the Community Security Trust (CST), which monitors anti-Semitic incidents and provides security to Jewish communities. 

The group recorded 1,309 eruptions of anti-Jewish hatred last year, compared with 960 in 2015, a rise of 36%, according to a report in the Guardian. The previous record number of incidents was in 2014, when 1,182 were recorded.
