Anti-Semitism in Europe: New Official Report

Anti-Semitism in Europe: New Official Report

Date Published:

Summary: 
  • Examining statistics from France, Britain, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Russia, Enstad points out that one of these seven countries "clearly stands out with a very low number" of anti-Semitic incidents despite its "relatively large Jewish population..."

  • Absurdly, whenever a perpetrator draws a swastika, the Swedish government automatically considers it a "right-wing" act.

  • Enstad concludes that right-wingers, in all four of the major Western European countries in his study, "constitute a clear minority of perpetrators." Indeed, "in France, Sweden and the UK (but not in Germany) the perpetrator was perceived to be left-wing more often than right-wing."
