Worrying results of the FRA survey B'nai B'rith Europe urges EU state members to launch comprehensive education programs

bbe2


On monday, the 70th Anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the European Commission presented a new survey by the EU Fundamental Rights Agency which finds that 9 out of 10 European Jews feel Antisemitism has increased over the past five years.

Serge Dahan, President of B'nai B'rith Europe attended the presentation at the European Commission in the presence of Věra Jourová, Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality, Karoline Edtstadler, State Secretary, Federal Ministry of the interior - austrian presidency of the european council, Michael O'Flaherty, director of the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights, Katharina von Schnurbein, European Commission coordinator on combating Antisemitism, Representatives of jewish communities and NGO's.

This survey was carried out online during May and June 2018. FRA issued a report analysing data from the responses of 16,395 respondents in 12 countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom). These member states are home to over 96% of European Jews, this is the largest ever survey of its type.

The results of the EU Fundamental Rights Agency's 2nd survey on Antisemitism are particularly worrying.
85% of European Jews consider Antisemitism to be the biggest social or political problem in their home country. Other figures, amongst others, show that Antisemitism is pervasive and is having an impact on the daily lives of European Jews throughout the EU: 89% of Jews think Antisemitism is most problematic on the internet and on social media; 28% of respondents have been harassed at least once in the past year; 79% of Jews who experienced antisemitic harassment in the past five years did not report this to the police or another organisation; 34% avoid visiting Jewish events or sites because they do not feel safe; 38% have considered emigrating because they did not feel safe as Jews in Europe; 70% consider that efforts by Member States to combat Antisemitism are not effective.

Serge Dahan thanks the FRA for producing this second comprehensive report on hate crimes and discriminations faced by jews in Europe.
« Following the declaration unanimously voted by 28 EU member states on the fight against antisemitism and the development of a common security approach to protect Jewish communities on December 6, political leaders across Europe need to take strong and concrete actions today. Education is the most efficient way to prevent and to face hate, this report highlights the urgent need to provide a comprehensive education about the holocaust as well as tools to counter conspiration theories and stereotypes ».

Serge Dahan thanks the European Parliament and the European Commission for their commitment to ensure the rights of jewish citizens in Europe are respected and hopes to see concrete measures at the EU member state level.

A women's water polo match between Israel and Spain scheduled for Tuesday was left without venue due to pressure from anti-Israel boycott activists. This match which is part of a European championship is a preliminary to the world water polo league. The Municipality of Barcelona backed down under the pressure of BDS boycott movement, and decided first to cancel the competition before relocating it.

Originally, the match was to be held in Molins de Rei, near Barcelona, but due to pressure from the CUP party and BDS activists, it has been decided to hold the Match in Barcelona. Ms Ada Colau, Mayor of Barcelona refused to host the competition.

B'nai B'rith Spain and the Licra actively contributed to ensure the game goes ahead and backed up Israel's Culture and Sports Minister Miri Regev in the efforts to prevent the BDS movement from blocking the game. The match was finally held on Tuesday 6th of November in Sant Cugat in secondary level premises.

"This is totally unacceptable" said Elie Azancot, President of B'nai B'rith Spain. "The situation in Spain is critical, we have witnessed many anti-Semitic decisions in our city, including the invitation of Leyla Khalid, a Palestinian terrorist".

B'nai B'rith Europe stronlgy condemns the decision of the municipality of Barcelona, infuenced by the BDS movement which opposes the very existence of the State of Israel, a member of the United Nations.

Furthermore, at this occasion the Municipality of Barcelona was not aligned with the Olympic philosophy and its fundamental principles. Olympism says that "the enjoyment of rights and freedoms to practice sport should take place without discrimination of any kind, such as race, colour, sex,sexual orientation, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status". Olympism is based on the non-discrimination principle.

Serge Dahan, President of B'nai B'rith Europe congratulates B'nai B'rith members in Spain and the LICRA for ensuring the match is held despite the illegal boycott.
