(Sunday, 23rd April 2017) - Today, the Kantor Center for the Study of Contemporary European Jewry at Tel Aviv University, in cooperation with the European Jewish Congress, released its Annual Report on Anti-Semitism for 2016 during a press conference held at the university.Dr. Moshe Kantor, President of the European Jewish Congress, commented on the findings, saying that while there was a substantial decrease in violent attacks against Jews, the motivation has not dropped, as witnessed by an increase in attacks on less protected arenas like online, university campuses and cemeteries.
"The future of a peaceful, united and tolerant Europe lies in all of our hands. We must be proactive in the face of this dark, encroaching racism, hate and intolerance, and refuse to passively accept it. Our European future depends on it."
