    Shifts in perceptions among European Jews on where they feel safest is not due entirely to demographic change. It also has to do with Eastern European leaders like the Czech Republic’s Miloš Zeman, who, in the tradition of the country’s founder, Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, has become not just a strong voice for his people but a true friend of the Jews.

    Czech President Miloš Zeman’s historic speech to the Israeli Knesset on November 26, 2018, in which he stressed that his country is not only Israel’s best friend in Europe but one of its best friends in the world, came on the heels of an important report released by the American Jewish Distribution Committee (JDC) on November 20.

    Living geographically and culturally close to the Czech republic and having witnessed the trip of Andrej Danko (Slovak parliament chief and nationalist leader) to Israel, I can tell you he was labelled a traitor by lots of people.

    The antisemitism in our regions is a reality, but it is less visible because there are hardly any Jews left. It's a different blend than the muslim antisemitism but still problematic.

      According to this German source, 3/4 of German Jews are afraid of wearing Jewish religious items, 41% of them experienced an anti-Semitic behaviour in the last 3 years, while 52% of them experienced it in the last 5 years:

      Most of these anti-Semitic incidents happen in culturally enriched areas.

        In December 2018, the Fundamental Rights Agency released a major survey on anti-Semitism in 12 European countries. Though flawed and not statistically representative, it draws many important conclusions. It confirms once again that anti-Semitism remains an integral part of European culture. While the findings do not mean the majority of Europeans are anti-Semites, they are nevertheless an indictment of Europe’s hypocrisy, pervasive anti-Semitism, non-selective immigration policies, widespread anti-Israelism, and huge discrepancy between the rhetoric of European leaders on fighting anti-Semitism and their actions.

        The fact that anti-Semitism from the left is mentioned more often than anti-Semitism from the right is consistent with the point that the main verbal expression of anti-Semitism found by the survey is that Jews are accused of responsibility for acts by Israel. This accusation comes mainly from the left and hardly ever from the right.

          Filmmaker Steven Spielberg told NBC News he thinks society must take the possibility of genocide more seriously now that it has in the past generation. In an interview marking the 25th anniversary of “Schindler’s List,” Spielberg referred to the massacre at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue and warned that “hate leading to genocide is as possible today as it was during the Holocaust.”

          He was behind the curve. The era of “never again” is ending in Western Europe, fading in North America and never penetrated the Middle East. Relentless demonization of the Jewish state renormalizes demonization of Jewish people.

                Thanks, but the "anti-Semitism in the US" thread is not mine. Ivan le Fou gets credit for that one.

                  Now that the Piece Of Shit formally known as Hugo Chavez is Resting In Piss, we can probably forego a thread dedicated to anti-Semitism in South America.

                  But, thank you for the reminder to be vigilant.

                  Meanwhile in Europe:

                  Extreme Anti-Semitism at Berlin Schools

                  Jewish pupils at German public schools are particularly vulnerable to the country’s greatly increased anti-Semitism. A number of extreme anti-Semitic incidents have been publicized in recent years, of which several of the most severe occurred in Berlin. German authorities are only slowly waking up to the problem. In many cases, the alleged perpetrators are children of Muslim immigrants – in particular in Berlin, which has the largest Muslim and Jewish communities.

                    By the way - South Americans/Latinos are said to be second most antisemtitic people on earth (guess who’s first?)... don’t ask me for an article about it or a source though as it’s nearly impossible to survey and poll but the more strongly catholic countries are, the more likely their sentiments towards Jews may be... awkward.

                        Israel tells a Corbynista to sod off:

                        ISRAEL REFUSES ENTRY TO MEMBER OF UK LABOUR PARTY

                        Gary Spedding, a British left-wing activist and member of the UK Labour Party, was detained at Ben-Gurion Airport on Monday and denied entry to Israel.

                        A CAUTIONARY TALE OF EUROPEAN ANTISEMITISM

                        The name Anton Drexler has been all but forgotten over the past tumultuous century on the European continent, nearly swept away by the tide of history amid a succession of wars, population transfers and genocide.

                        But amid a worrying rise in antisemitism across the European Union, the story of this otherwise unremarkable railway toolmaker and locksmith, who founded the German Workers Party (DAP) 100 years ago this month and mentored a young man named Adolf Hitler, provides a cautionary tale of how a small band of extremists can leave a lasting and lethal legacy on the course of human events.

                          That said, I don’t dismiss White Europeans antisemitism either, Catholics or not. Troubled times we live in.
                          you've hit the nail bang on the head Catholics are the people in Europe with the most hatred towards Jewish people in general .... there so called holy book still blames jews for the murder of Jesus who ironically was jewish and according to most scholars a follower of the largest religious figure in the holy land at that time John the Baptist (why would the so called son of god be a follower over another mere mortal ??) the simple fact was he was murdered/executed by a son of Rome a veteran of the Germanic border wars and a general of the elite Praetorian Guards Rome's finest.

                          The truth is had the Vatican in Rome proclaimed their savior was murdered by a son of Rome ... then Rome would be the object of Christians/Catholics hatred hence Jews were used as a scapegoat after they translated the hebrew bible into Latin with a few excerpts taken out and passed off as their bible and that is why Jews have been persecuted by Christians of a certain faith in Europe

                            And i must add the Roman Catholic church is the most bigoted in the world the previous pope ... Pope Adolf the 1st claimed the only true religion was the Roman Catholic faith and all other religions were not true religions and he proclaimed the Hebrew faith to be a non religion .... and he proclaimed Atheists like myself to be akin to Nazis ... a massive dose of hypocrisy coming from a guy that was in the hitler youth and a anti aircraft gunner

                            This is not just the view of one lone Pope but is the held view of the Vatican it considers the followers of all other religions to be heretics, including followers of other Christian faiths like Presbyterians, Orthodox and Gnostic Christians .... the last time this was practised by the Catholic church was during WW2 in Croatia by the Catholic Ustashe with the blessing of pope Pius the XIIth to make Croatia a Catholic only state with the genocide of well over 1 million Orthodox Serbs and Jews and transporting the excess jews to nazi concentration camps all under a identical flag Croatia uses today as a national flag.

                            I must add a precautionary note not all Catholics think and act this way to say otherwise is to be a bigot, don't blame the followers blame the messengers

                              The fight against anti-Semitism on the international level continues to be characterized by restraint combined with ignorance – a potentially deadly combination. European hand-wringing and the spouting of clichés will never suffice; the extent of the rot must be acknowledged if it is to be effectively confronted.

                              Almost every day in Europe there is a statement, a workshop, or a symposium on anti-Semitism. An international conference on the problem recently took place in Vienna, for example, under the auspices of Austrian PM Sebastian Kurz. Do such activities have any effect on European anti-Semitism, which grows by the day? Do they create any obstacle to the enormous diffusion and radicalization of online anti-Semitism – Jew-hatred 2.0?

                                The Netherlands’ Profound Hypocrisy on the Jews

                                The Netherlands’ attitude towards the Jews reveals Dutch society to be profoundly hypocritical. The Dutch government remains the only one in Western Europe that consistently refuses to admit, let alone apologize for, the massive failures of its predecessors towards the Jews during WWII. Ignoring the truth of its past enables the Dutch government and parts of the political system to act as moral judges over others, with Israel a prime target.
