(Worthy News) - Verbal and physical attacks against Jews in Europe increased "dramatically" in 2014 across the continent, the European Commission Against Racism and Intolerance said in its annual report released on Thursday.
"In some countries the number of antisemitic attacks more than doubled in 2014 compared to the previous year," said the report.
The ECARI — which functions under the Council of Europe — noted an increase in antisemitic trends in Muslim immigrant communities, particularly among the younger generation. [ Source ]
