Antisemitism on rise across Europe ‘in worst times since the Nazis’

Experts say attacks go beyond Israel-Palestinian conflict as hate crimes strike fear into Jewish communities.

In the space of just one week last month, according to Crif, the umbrella group for France’s Jewish organisations, eight synagogues were attacked. One, in the Paris suburb of Sarcelles, was firebombed by a 400-strong mob. A kosher supermarket and pharmacy were smashed and looted; the crowd’s chants and banners included “Death to Jews” and “Slit Jews’ throats”.
