Racism 'dramatically' up in 2014 - CoE

Anti-Semitic insults, attacks more than double says ECRI

(ANSA) - Strasbourg, July 9 - Anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, and racial hatred "rose dramatically" in Europe during the course of 2014, according to the annual report from the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI), a monitoring body of the Council of Europe (CoE).
    "Insults and attacks against Jewish people and places," ECRI said, "have greatly increased and have more than doubled in some countries" because of Middle East events.
    There are "growing anti-Semitic tendencies in Muslim communities, in particular among young people," ECRI said.
