Anti-Semitism 'on the rise' say Europe's Jews
11/8/13
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-24857207

Many Jews in Europe say anti-Semitism is increasing, particularly on the internet, according to a survey by the EU's Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA).

The survey of 5,847 Jewish people said 66% of those who responded considered anti-Semitism to be a problem.

Three out of four respondents, 76%, believed anti-Semitism had increased over the past five years.

The survey was carried out in 2012 in eight countries which are home to about 90% of the EU's Jewish population.

Respondents in Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Sweden and the United Kingdom were asked to give "their opinions and perceptions on anti-Semitic trends and anti-Semitism as a problem in everyday".

They were also asked about their personal experiences and worries about their own safety and that of family members.

There was particular concern about anti-Semitism online. About three-quarters of respondents considered that to be a problem which is getting worse.

A British woman in her 50s, quoted in the survey, said she had "experienced more anti-Semitic comments" since going on Facebook "than I ever have done throughout my whole life".

She added: "This is very dispiriting. The speed at which hostile comments and misinformation can be passed around is frightening and leads to a sense of deep unease, which may not connect with the day-to-day reality of being Jewish in a diverse society."

Condemnation call
 
The survey found 29% of those surveyed had considered emigrating because of concerns about safety, with particularly high figures recorded in Hungary (48%), France (46%) and Belgium (40%).

It found one in five respondents had personally experienced at least one anti-Semitic verbal insult and/or a physical attack in the year before the survey.

Perpetrators of the most serious incidents were described as "being perceived as someone with Muslim extremist views, 27%, left-wing political views, 22%, or with right-wing views, 19%".

Respondents said the most frequent comments made by non-Jewish people in the UK were: "Israelis behave 'like Nazis' towards the Palestinians" and "Jews exploit Holocaust victimhood for their own purposes" (both 35%).

In France 52% of the Jewish people surveyed described anti-Semitism as a "very big problem" in their country, in Hungary the figure was 49%, while in the UK it was much less - 11%.

The survey showed significant differences between Western and Eastern European countries.

In Latvia, only 8% said the Israeli-Arab conflict had had a large impact on how safe they felt, but the figure rose to 28% for Germany and was as high as 73% in France.

FRA Director Morten Kjaerum said this reflected differing histories, as well as recent patterns of immigration.

"I think that there is across Europe... a traditional form of anti-Semitism that goes back in history for a long time," he said.

"But then we also see a particular sort of anti-Semitism reported by the respondents, namely the anti-Semitism which comes out of the conflict in the Middle East. And this is where you have to be careful: when do you have a legitimate critique of whatever your position may be in terms of that particular conflict and when would it be an anti-Semitic statement?"

Demand for action
 
The FRA said EU countries should work "urgently" to find effective ways to combat online anti-Semitism. It called on public figures to condemn anti-Semitic statements.

The President of the European Jewish Congress, Moshe Kantor, welcomed the survey, but said "the fact that a quarter of Jews are not able to express their Jewishness because of fear should be a watershed moment for the continent of Europe and the European Union."

"The Jewish reality in Europe is of great concern and the authorities need to deal with incidents of hate and intolerance in a holistic manner, to really combat these manifestations before it is too late.

"We would like to see concrete steps being taken, including creating legislation to specifically deal with anti-Semitism and racism, bolstering law enforcement agencies and ensure a zero-tolerance approach to anti-Semitism, even, and perhaps specifically, when opinion-shapers and decision-makers engage in these forms of hate," he said.

Pigs’ heads sent to Israel embassy, synagogue in Rome

Boxes containing pigs’ heads were sent to the Israeli embassy in Rome and the city’s synagogue, Italian media reported Saturday. The package mailed to the embassy in the wealthy Parioli area of the Italian capital was intercepted by police after other similar parcels were sent to the synagogue and the Jewish Museum of Rome, which is hosting an exhibit on the Holocaust.

French Jews Migrate To Israel Citing Rising Anti-Semitism

PARIS (RNS) By any standard, David Tibi is a French success story.

The 44-year-old dentist and father of five has a thriving practice and a house in the affluent Paris suburb of Vincennes. His wife is a doctor and he is a leading member of the Jewish community and holds a senior post in its Central Consistory of Paris.

But in early July, the Tibi family will pack their bags and join the thousands of Jews now leaving France. The house has been sold. A colleague will be handling the dental practice. The family is leaving on a one-way ticket to Israel.

“If my children are to live their full Jewish identity, their future is in Israel and not in France,” Tibi said during an interview at his office in northeastern Paris, an area packed with kosher stores and restaurants. “Many Jews feel this way. There’s a massive desire to leave.”

Worldwide, immigration to Israel has stagnated and even declined. But French Jews are bucking the trend. Last year, a record 3,270 French Jews made aliyah — or immigration to Israel — a 63 percent hike from 2012. The Jewish Agency, which promotes aliyah internationally, estimates that figure could spike to 5,000 as early as this year, dramatically changing the face of Israeli immigration as well as France’s own Jewish community, the largest in Western Europe.

“For Jews today, Israel allows them to reinforce their Jewish identity,” said Ariel Kandel, who made his own aliyah from France 20 years ago and now directs the Jewish Agency in France.

A mix of factors are driving the exodus, Kandel and others say, from historical and sentimental ties — many of France’s majority Sephardic population have family in Israel — to economic ones. In January, French unemployment rose to a record 11 percent. Israel’s, by contrast, hovers at about 6 percent.

But rising anti-Semitism may be the strongest driver, manifest not only through rhetoric but also action. In 2012, a radical Islamist gunned down four people at a Jewish school in Toulouse.

More recently, two of Tibi’s children were taunted on a tram. Tibi filled out immigration papers three weeks ago, making good on a project he had contemplated for years.

“My son is always asking me why there are police in front of his Jewish school, why we need to be searched each time we go to the synagogue,” he said. “We are raising our children to live with this fear.”

What troubles Tibi most is the lack of response on the part of the French.

“Once we had one million French on the streets against anti-Semitism. Now we have three million on Facebook and Twitter who are supporting Dieudonne,” he said, referring to a controversial French comic who is known for his anti-Jewish discourse.

The Tibis have already found an apartment in the Tel Aviv suburb of Ra’anana. They have picked out schools for their children. They will have to learn Hebrew, but they will hardly feel lonely. Half a dozen other French families are flying out with them. Other friends and family live near Tel Aviv. And in his new home, Tibi said, roughly 8 percent of the population is French.

“If you go to a restaurant, they’ll hand you a menu in French,” he said. “The (Israeli) administration gives you documents in French. We had the waves of aliyahs from Ethiopia and Russia. Now it’s the aliyah of French Jews.”

The Israeli government is facilitating the French aliyah in other ways. There are draft measures to recognize French diplomas and other qualifications. At the Jewish Agency’s Paris office, brochures offer information about youth programs to Israel that attract roughly 1,000 French Jews each year. Every week, another 300 Jews attend the agency’s informational meetings about Israel, Kandel, the director, said.

“That means you have about 30,000 Jews who are thinking about moving to Israel in the next two years,” he said. “We’re not knocking on people’s doors. But if people want to, or hope to, or think of leaving, the state of Israel must be capable of delivering.”

What Israel delivers does not suit everyone. There are no statistics of Jews returning here, but some have a hard time adjusting and finding jobs in Israel.

Children of immigrants are required to serve in the military where conscription is mandatory for both young men and women. And then there’s the ongoing existential threats from Palestinians and hostile Arab neighbors.

A poster in Kandel’s office states: “We did not promise you a rose garden.”

“Life is tough in Israel,” Kandel said. “What’s new is that life is tough in France as well. So the young especially are thinking, ‘Why not take my chance in Israel?’”

Others strongly believe their roots remain in France.

“For a lot of people, being connected to Israel and having a Zionist commitment just expresses itself in going to Israel on vacation,” said Sacha Reingewirtz, president of the French Union of Jewish Students. “We’re not looking at a massive exodus.”

Paris Orthodox Rabbi Mendel Azimov is also unfazed by the departures. “I can’t say this is a general community alert,” he said. “There are half a million Jews in France and I don’t see everybody moving out.”

But Tibi, who is president of the Paris-area Jewish community, is watching the departures and listening to the talk. “It’s a snowball effect,” he said, predicting the exodus may reach 8,000 Jews a year.

The fallout is already evident, he added. Students are leaving Jewish schools. The community is searching for new leaders and reconsidering costly construction projects.

Tibi is feeling the loss in other ways. “I was born in France. I did my studies in France. I am extremely sad to leave a country that gave me a lot,” he said. “But sometimes even when you love, you have to leave.”

Researchers Were ‘Very Surprised’ to Discover Few Right-Wingers Sent Anti-Semitic Hate Mail, but Here’s Who Did

The author of a German study that examined thousands of anti-Semitic hate messages told an Israeli newspaper that she was “very surprised” to discover that only 3 percent came from those described as members of the political “far-right.”

Monika Schwarz-Friesel, a linguistics professor at the Technical University of Berlin, and her team read 14,000 letters and emails addressed to the Israeli embassy in Berlin and to Germany’s Central Council of Jews, Haaretz reported.

The results were summarized in her book, “The Language of Hostility Towards Jews in the 21st Century,” which was published in German and is due out in English next year.

“I wanted to find out how modern anti-Semites think, feel and communicate,” Schwarz-Friesel told Haaretz.

The study concluded that a majority of the messages – 60 percent – were sent by educated Germans, including university professors and priests. Shocked say it isnt so, not the Liberals..  Roll Eyes

That finding shattered the research team’s initial assumptions. Because they are a bunch of Liberals them selves..

“At first, we thought that most of the letters would be sent by right-wing extremists,” Schwarz-Friesel said. “But I was very surprised to discover that they were actually sent by people from the social mainstream – professors, Ph.D.s, lawyers, priests, university and high-school students.”

Efraim Zuroff, Israel office director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a Jewish human rights group, told TheBlaze “there’s no question that there is an undercurrent [of anti-Semitism] in respectable German society and it’s very often people who would be shocked to be called anti-Semites.”

“This animus against the Jews exists, and this study clearly shows it,” said Zuroff, whom Time magazine described as “the world’s most prominent Nazi hunter.”

“The problem is not the extreme right and neo-Nazis because they are so marginal in German society … the problem is in respectable German society that normally doesn’t accept overt anti-Semitism,” Zuroff said.

Asked about the researchers’ “surprised” reaction to their findings, Zuroff said: “It’s very simple. They think that they share common values with liberal, humanistic, ostensibly sane Germans but part of problem is that some of those people have deeply embedded anti-Semitism that sometimes manifests itself in [hate] letters.”

The letters examined were sent between 2002 and 2012. The study was conducted jointly with American historian Jehuda Reinharz.

“We found that there is hardly any difference in the semantics of highly educated anti-Semites and vulgar extremists and neo-Nazis,” Schwarz-Friezel told the American Jewish news site the Forward in December. “The difference lies only in style and formal rhetoric, but the concepts are the same.”

In addition to the 14,000 letters sent in Germany, 2,000 additional messages received by Israeli embassies around Europe were also reviewed.

Here are samples of content included in some of the messages, as quoted in Haaretz and in the Forward:

    • “Is it possible that the excessive violence in Israel, including the murder of innocent children, corresponds to the long tradition of your people?”

    • “For the last 2,000 years, you’ve been stealing land and committing genocide.”

    • “You Israelis … shoot cluster bombs over populated areas and accuse people who criticize such actions of anti-Semitism. That’s typical of the Jews!”

The researchers found that many of the letters equated the actions of the Israel Defense Forces to the Nazi genocide of the Jews.

Notably, many of the letter-writers were not ashamed of their language and often included their names, addresses and professions, which helped the research team validate their political affiliation, according to the Forward.

The study reported that 80 percent of the letters were anti-Israel, often masking anti-Semitic feelings.

“Today, it’s already impossible to distinguish between anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism. Modern anti-Semites have turned ‘the Jewish problem’ into ‘the Israeli problem.’ They have redirected the ‘final solution’ from the Jews to the State of Israel, which they see as the embodiment of evil,” Schwarz-Friesel told Haaretz.

The researchers counted as anti-Semitic only those messages that described German Jews as not being truly German and blamed German Jews for Israel’s actions.

Hungary: Jewish graves spray-painted with swastikas

A Jewish cemetery in the city of Tatabánya in Hungary was vandalized on Thursday, as tombstones were spray-painted with swastikas and writings reading "rotten Jews" and "there was never a Holocaust, but there will be one."

Sharp rise in French Jews leaving for Israel

The number of French Jews emigrating to Israel rose nearly four-fold in the first quarter of the year and could touch a record in 2014, a Jewish organisation said Monday.

The Jewish Agency for Israel, a global body responsible for the immigration and absorption of Jews into Israel, said 1,407 people left France for Israel between January and March against 353 people a year earlier.

"This phenomenon is speeding up" said Ariel Kandel, the head of the Jewish Agency's French chapter.

"We will not finish the year with four times more the number than in 2013 but if the current rhythm continues, there will be more than 5,000 French people leaving for Israel, something that has never happened since its creation in 1948," he said.

Kandel told AFP that the reasons for the hike in numbers were a "climate of anti-Semitism" and the prevailing gloomy economic situation in France.

France's Jewish community is one of the largest in Europe and pegged at around 500,000.

The number of French Jews leaving for Israel has been growing steadily. A total of 1,907 left in 2012 and it rose to 3,280 in 2013.

More than three million people have emigrated to Israel since 1948, including some 90,000 from France.

One in four adults worldwide are anti-Semitic, survey says

The survey included 102 countries representing 88 percent of the world population, and asked if 11 traditionally anti-Semitic attitudes were true or false. Those stereotypes include whether Jewish people have excessive power over international markets and the global media, whether they are about only "their own kind," and whether "Jews are responsible for most of the world's wars."

European Parliament set to usher in first neo-Nazis
German Jews shocked at EU success of far right, including local self-described ‘national socialist’ faction


BRUSSELS — Though no stranger to controversy or diatribe, the European Parliament is set to usher in its first fully-fledged neo-Nazis members, from Germany and Greece.

With around 300,000 votes at the European elections the neo-Nazi National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD) was expected to claim one of the country’s 96 seats in the new Parliament, in a historical ground-breaker.

A recent change in German electoral laws, scrapping all minimum thresholds, paved the way for the march into parliament of the NPD, which has 6,000 members.

It describes itself as “national socialist,” just like Germany’s Nazis in the 1930s, and is openly xenophobic and anti-Semitic so a group of German regional governments have tried to have it banned for propagating racism.

Meanwhile, with almost all ballots counted in Greece, the neo-Nazi “Golden Dawn” party is claiming over nine percent of the vote, which would net it three seats in the 751-member Parliament.

Golden Dawn was founded in the 1980s by Nikos Michaloliakos, an open admirer of Adolf Hitler. In 2012, Michaloliakos publicly denied the responsibility of Nazis in the mass-murder of six million Jews.

By harnessing resentment over EU-driven austerity measures imposed on Greece, Golden Dawn ran third in the European vote held on Sunday, behind the Coalition of the Radical Left and the center-right New Democracy Party.

In June 2012, six of its 18 MPs in the Greek parliament, including Michaloliakos, were detained by police on charges of belonging to a criminal organisation after the killing of an anti-fascist musician.

Golden Dawn now counts 16 MPs in the Greek parliament, after two MPs left. One of those MPs now sits on the cross-benches, the other is in jail.

The leader of Germany’s Jewish community denounced the gains made by far-right parties and urged democratic forces to block their path and defend European values.

Dieter Graumann, the president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, said the extremist parties performed “shockingly well”, as feared, in Sunday’s European parliamentary vote.

Graumann pointed to France, Hungary and Greece, saying in a statement: “Right-wing MPs are now coming into the European Parliament from all over Europe in order to implement their anti-European and extremist course.”

“Democratic parties are now called on to curb this way of thinking and to defend and maintain European values,” Graumann said.

He also said that the “specter of anti-Semitism” had become a “brutal reality” after a gunman shot dead four people at the Jewish Museum in Brussels Saturday.

“Such a thing can never be accepted and this message should be the very first which emanates from the new European Parliament,” Graumann said.

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said he was deeply shocked over the attack.

“It goes without saying that in every regard and from every conceivable perspective, it’s completely unacceptable what happened there,” Steinmeier’s spokesman told reporters Monday.

Graumann described as “intolerable” the winning of one seat in the parliament by the extremist anti-immigrant NDP of Germany.

Racism and anti-Semitism must have no place in Europe, Graumann warned.

Just is just from what I've OBSERVED over the course of my lifetime(again, just MY OWN personal observations) - getting into any kind of witchcraft can open the doors for just that...deception into thinking the Jews are (somehow)these evil people ruining the planet. No, I'm not just talking about pagan practices witches, freemasons, new agers, etc do - there's just MANY types of other forms - for example, television. Yes, I watch a bit of my share, but it IS a trojan horse, and too much of it will really soften up your brains(as well as other forms of entertainment like being in a movie theater alot, rock music, etc). And don't forget about those perverted bible versions that push witchcraft(instead of condemn it) - no wonder why the Apostate Church buys into replacement theology now.

And look at some of these cults like Theosophy - Blavatsky HATED the Jews.(and Hitler was a student of Blavatsky)

Only a Third of the World Believes in the Holocaust

Forty-six percent of the planet's population has never heard of theHolocaust.  A third of those who have believe it is a myth or exaggeration.  As a result, only 33 percent of the world is aware of the Holocaust and believes it has been accurately described by history.

The Anti-Defamation League discovered this data when it recently polled 53,000 adults in 102 countries, representing 88.4 percent of the world's adult population.  According to their surveys, 1.09 billion adults worldwide are deeply infected with anti-Semitic attitudes.  That's one in four.  Not surprisingly, anti-Semitism is worst in the Middle East and North Africa, where 74 percent of the population harbors antagonism toward the Jews.

Anti-Semitism is lowest in the Americas (19 percent) and Oceania (14 percent).  However, these numbers are still far too high.  If there is good news, it is that the more people know Jews, the less anti-Semitic they are.  Where there is a larger Jewish population, 22 percent are anti-Semitic; where there is a smaller Jewish population, the number rises to 28 percent.  Of the 26 percent who are considered anti-Semitic, 70 percent have never actually met a Jewish person.

On a recent study tour in Israel, I was asked by a participant why I thought the Jews have faced such prejudice over the centuries.  On the face of it, we wouldn't expect their race to be so persecuted.  They have never exceeded 3.5 percent of the American population, but have produced 37 percent of our Nobel Laureates.  The Jewish people have long been on the forefront of economic advance.  Israel is the only true democracy in the Middle East and our best friend in this vitriolic part of the world.

And don't forget about all of that propaganda over how the number of Jews killed in those concentration camps were somehow overestimated by millions. Even Ronald Reagan pushed this idea...

World Sides With Evil as Global Anti-Semitism Rises

As Muslims in France attack Jews at a memorial service at a synagogue, as anti-Semitic protesters in Los Angeles attack pro-Israel ralliers with sticks, the Obama administration and the French government and international institutions like the United Nations proclaim moral equivalence between Israel and its murderous enemies. This is the world in which we now live: a world that proclaims that those who protect their rocket launchers with children are morally equal to those who protect their children by blowing up rocket launchers.

So this conflict will continue. Those who decry eternal conflict between good and evil must take sides with either good or evil. And those who are impartial between good and evil side with evil.

There are those, like Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who know this – Harper stated over the weekend, “Canada is unequivocally behind Israel. We support its right to defend itself, by itself, against these terror attacks, and urge Hamas to immediately cease their indiscriminate attacks on innocent Israeli civilians.” And there are those, like Barack Obama, who continue to call for de-escalation, and thereby prolong the conflict.

Those who state that the conflict between good and evil is a “cycle of violence” help continue that cycle of violence. The conflict between good and evil is interminable, unless good wins, or unless evil vanquishes it.

Growing opposition to Israel in Germany

As pro-Gaza demonstrations with anti-Jewish sentiments spread throughout Europe, a public debate in Germany aims to draw a clear line between criticism of Israeli politics and hatred of Jews.


"Berlin police cower before Jew-haters," proclaimed a headline in the Berlin newspaper "Tagesspiegel" - and this line has been posted numerous times on social networking sites. It was reported that a group of Arabs shouted "Jew, Jew, cowardly pig, come out and fight alone" at a recent demonstration and police officers did not interfere.

In many European cities, what began as peaceful protests turned into outpourings of anti-Jewish sentiments and violence against counter-demonstrators. The situation became particularly heated in France, where street fights broke out between protestors and police in front of synagogues over the weekend. In Berlin, meanwhile, state security authorities have launched an investigation against a Muslim preacher from the Al-Nur mosque who posted a video on YouTube calling for murder of Jews.

Germany's special role

Yakov Hadas-Handelsman, Israel's ambassador to Germany since 2012, has expressed indignation and concern over the incidents.

"We have nothing against demonstrations or against freedom of expression - that's the core of democracy," Hadas-Handelsman told DW in an interview. "But when, as happened this weekend, it leads to violence against the police or against pro-Israeli demonstrators, then it is unacceptable. I think Germans should be worried by that, because you also hear anti-Semitic slogans like 'Jews into the gas' - in Germany?"

He added that Germany needed to consider how to deal with anti-Jewish protests of this kind.

Politicians from nearly all German political parties have condemned the hostile displays. However, at this stage, the German government does not see a reason to raise alarm. According to a government spokesperson, everything is being done to protect Jewish institutions.

Hadas-Handelsman finds the violent protests unacceptable

The Gaza conflict has stirred up public opinion in Europe, and it has brought Israel-hatred to Germany along with it, according to political scientist Stephan Grigat.

"You don't need great differentiation skills to be able to assert that this is straightforward anti-Semitism, in a drastic form that could also be found on the streets of Germany 70 years ago," said Grigat.

Grigat, who currently teaches at the Jewish Studies Institute at the University of Vienna, does not find the latest developments in Germany surprising. He pointed out that major demonstrations also took place during the confrontation between Israel and Hamas in 2012.

"However, in those years it was mostly people who identified with left-wing politics and who expressed harsh and often inappropriate criticism towards Israel," explained Grigat, adding that the current demonstrators are mostly members of Islamist groups. "Many of the participants openly express support for Hamas, Lebanon's Hezbollah or Islamic jihad."

From his perspective, there is a perfidious tactic behind the Islamists' campaign: "They use photos of dead civilians in Gaza to attach the 'Israel the child killer' image to their propaganda crusade in typical anti-Semitic fashion."

Another new factor in the latest protests is the "pronounced aggression" - and the fact that it is possible to mobilize several thousand people in a short time.

Different from other conflicts?

Grigat has also observed a growing anti-Israel stance in mainstream German society. And he finds that the term "Israel-criticism" alone reveals a lot about the negative sentiment. After all, he said, nobody speaks of "Japan-criticism" or "Sweden-criticism" when they do not approve of something the Japanese or Swedish government does.

"This expression shows what all this is really about: not reasonable criticism of individual decisions made by the Israeli government, but plain resentment of the existence of the Jewish state," said Grigat.

Whoever demonstrates in the street to show solidarity with the Palestinian victims should ask themselves why they don't do the same during other conflicts, added Grigat. "You really need to ask the question why 200 dead Palestinians are enough to send 10,000 people into the streets but nobody seems interested when 100,000 people are killed in Syria."

The anti-Israel demonstrations in France have been particularly violent

There is also a heated debate on social media sites about the concerns about dead and injured Palestinians. Many have observed, similarly to Grigat, that the Gaza crisis has been exploited by some for political purposes. One Twitter user wrote: "When I was against the war in Iraq, I shouted, 'Stop the war in Iraq.' If you are against the war in the Middle East, why are you calling 'Down with Israel'?"

But another Twitter user posed the question, "At what point can you call it genocide without being accused of anti-Semitism?" A third user said "I can very well oppose anti-Semitism during German protests and Israel's attacks against Gaza at the same time."

Jewish criticism of Israeli politics

Rolf Verleger, a Jew and former board member of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, places most of the blame for the current mood on the Israeli government. In a recent interview on German radio, he pointed out that the Gaza Strip had come to resemble a giant prison and said it should be possible for a person to express criticism of Israel's Gaza policy without being branded an anti-Semite.

He also cannot understand it when German politicians are reluctant to criticize Israel based on German history. "What do my murdered ancestors have to do with the injustice perpetrated in the Middle East right now?" asked Verleger. "You can't just permit injustice to continue because of horrible things that happened in the past."

More protests likely

Many Germans see things the same way. In a recent survey by the "Stern" magazine, more than half of respondents place the blame for the conflict on both Israel and Hamas - and 86 percent believe that Germany should not publically stand on the Israeli side.

In the meantime, pro-Gaza demonstrations are set to continue in Germany and other European countries. They have a good chance of reaching a high point on Quds Day, which is used each year as an occasion for anti-Israel demonstrations around the world as it calls for the "liberation" of Jerusalem from "Zionist occupiers."

Netherlands: Muslim protesters scream “Death to all Jews”

“A spokesman for Van Aartsen told local broadcaster Omroep West no boundaries had been overstepped.” Europe, under the influence of its massive influx of Muslim immigrants, seems eager to travel down the same road it took in the 1930′s. We have seen similar genocidal chants recently in France and Germany. Will European authorities at any point put at stop to this, or will they just continue with their policies of appeasement and surrender until it is far too late?

“The Hague mayor urged to get tough after anti-Jewish chanting at rally,” Dutch News, July 25, 2014 (thanks to Fjordman):

    The Hague’s mayor Jozias van Aartsen is being urged to get tough on anti-Jewish demonstrators after people were heard chanting ‘death to Jews’ at a protest rally in the city on Thursday evening.

    During the rally, in which some of the 100 protesters carried pro-Isis flags, Muslim youngsters were heard to shout ‘death to all Jews’, news magazine Elsevier reports.

    Esther Voet of the Israel information centre CIDI said on Twitter: ‘people who made themselves unrecognisable, Isis flags, death to Jews and journalists take to safety. The Netherlands 2014.’

    Police

    Despite the anti-Jewish sentiment in some of the speeches, the police only got involved when a female journalist was verbally attacked by some of the demonstrators, the Telegraph says.

    Many of the demonstrators had covered their faces – which is now illegal in Dutch law.

    A spokesman for Van Aartsen told local broadcaster Omroep West no boundaries had been overstepped. ‘I have received no signals that was the case,’ the spokesman said.

    However, the public prosecution department said in a statement on Friday afternoon it would be examining footage of the rally with an interpreter to assess if the law had been broken.

    Earlier this month, Jewish groups met Van Aartsen after participants at another anti-Israel demonstration carried banners equating Israel with the Nazis.

    Jewish organisations said they wanted to know why he did not take tough action against the ‘spreading of hatred and calls to violence’.

Paris bans pro-Palestinian protest after recent violence: police

 French police have banned a protest against Israel's Gaza offensive that was due to take place in Paris on Saturday, following several similar rallies that turned violent.

The ban, announced by police on Friday, comes in the wake of clashes earlier this month at pro-Palestinian demonstrations, in which some protesters shouted anti-Semitic slogans and fought with police.

Two of those rallies had been banned but went ahead anyway.

Following Friday's announcement, French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve appealed on organisers to cancel the rally.

"I urge the organisers to abandon the event on Saturday," he told AFP, accusing them of taking a "high-risk path" if they went ahead.

But a lawyer representing the organisers of the rally said they had lodged a legal challenge against the ruling.

BBC To Israeli Minister: "Please Don't Show Picture Of Synagogue Terror Victim"
“Sir, uh, we don’t want to actually see that picture. If you can take that down.”




On Tuesday, Israel's Jewish Home Minister Naftali Bennett was being interviewed by the BBC about the terrorist attack in a Jerusalem synagogue. When Bennett tried to humanize the massacre by showing a picture of one of the victims, the interviewer said, "We don't want to see the picture," and asked the minister to take the picture down.

About an hour and a half after two terrorists slaughtered four worshipers in a Jerusalem synagogue, Naftali Bennett appeared on the BBC to discuss the attack. At one point he raised a picture of one of the victims (below), saying, "This individual came this morning to pray..." Then he was cut off by the BBC interviewer: “Sir, uh, we don’t want to actually see that picture. If you can take that down.”



Avoiding pictures of the dead is not a BBC policy, which you can see from this video example below, where they broadcasted pictures of the Palestinian dead during the recent Operation Protective Edge.

Perhaps the BBC has a problem with someone trying to humanize Jewish victims of terrorism.

Anti-Semitic incidents on rise in France, says minister

 Anti-Semitic threats and incidents have more than doubled so far this year in France, said the interior minister at a rally on Sunday to protest a violent attack on a young Jewish couple.

Three men were detained by police and appeared before an investigative judge on Wednesday in relation to the day-time home invasion in the Paris suburb of Creteil in which a 19-year-old woman was raped.

Her 21-year-old boyfriend, who was tied up during the robbery, said the men targeted the apartment because they knew the residents were Jewish and believed there would be money and valuables inside.

Speaking to a crowd of several hundred protesters, France's Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said the government would defend the Jewish community with "all its force".

"We must make the fight against racism and anti-Semitism a national cause," he said.

France has the largest Jewish population in Europe, having grown by nearly half since World War Two to total some 550,000 Jews, according to the community's umbrella group CRIF.

But violent incidents like the murders of three Jewish children and a rabbi by Islamist militant gunman Mohamed Merah in 2012, and clashes at pro-Palestinian rallies in Paris in July have disturbed some in the Jewish community.

In the first three months of 2014 more Jews left France for Israel than at any other time since the Jewish state was created in 1948, citing economic hardships in France's stagnating economy but also rising anti-Semitism as a factor.

Roger Cukierman, the head of Crif, called on the government to do more to address the problem.

"We feel that something has changed: it's no longer just graffiti or minor incidents, these are death threats [against the Jewish community]," he told BFM TV.

"It cannot go on like this."

BBC director Danny Cohen: Rising UK antisemitism makes me feel more uncomfortable than ever

The director of television at the BBC has said he has “never felt so uncomfortable as a Jew in the UK” as it was revealed that antisemitic incidents in Britain hit record annual levels in 2014.

Danny Cohen used the platform of a conference in Jerusalem to express his fears over what he identified as growing levels of hostility towards Jewish communities in Britain and in other parts of Europe.

“I’ve never felt so uncomfortable being a Jew in the UK as I’ve felt in the last 12 months. And it’s made me think about, you know, is it our long-term home, actually? Because you feel it. I’ve felt it in a way I’ve never felt before,” he said.

Mr Cohen, 40, the former controller of BBC1, said levels of hatred were on the rise across Europe. “You’ve seen the number of attacks rise, you’ve seen murders in France, you’ve seen murders in Belgium. It’s been pretty grim actually,” he told an audience at Jerusalem Cinematheque at a conference addressing the ability of comedy to drive forward social change.

A native north Londoner, he said: “Having lived all my life in the UK, I’ve never felt as I do now about antisemitism in Europe.”

Although Cohen made no reference to his job in his comments, the BBC has been the target of a series of angry public protests this year from crowds critical of Israel’s actions in the recent conflict in Gaza. The broadcaster was accused of failing to fairly represent the plight and position of Palestinians in the violence, which followed Israel’s launch of Operation Protective Edge in July.

The Gaza conflict led to a sharp rise in antisemitic incidents in Britain, where the Jewish community amounts to 260,000. Following a pro-Palestinian rally in July, a group of young men drove in convoy through a Jewish part of Greater Manchester shouting “Heil Hitler” and throwing eggs and drinks cans at pedestrians. Four teenagers were charged with a physical attack on a rabbi in Gateshead. A sign saying “Child Murderers” was placed outside the Kingston Synagogue, south-west London, in August.

Vivian Wineman, of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, told The Independent that the number of recorded antisemitic incidents for 2014 was “the highest since records began”, although there has been a fall-off in recent months.

“Whilst we have much to celebrate about being Jewish in the UK, a summer filled with hostile, anti-Zionist demonstrations has clearly left its mark,” he said.

“Compared to other countries in Europe, the UK still has relatively low levels of antisemitism and it is reassuring to note that the number of recorded antisemitic incidents is returning to former levels. However we must not rest on our laurels. The Board, alongside other Jewish organisations, will continue to work together with government and others to combat this deeply concerning trend.”

Mr Cohen recently announced the BBC’s ambitious plans to mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz on 27 January. Holocaust Memorial Day will include a screening of the 10-hour documentary Shoah. In The Eichmann Show, Martin Freeman will play TV producer Milton Fruchtman, who covered the trial of Adolf Eichmann, an architect of the Nazi plan to exterminate Europe’s Jews. Mr Cohen’s decision to give the event high prominence has been described as a response to “growing concern about a rise in antisemitism across Europe”.

'Every single French Jew I know has left Paris': Editor of Britain's Jewish Chronicle claims people are fleeing terror-hit French capital

    Stephen Pollard says terror attack on Kosher store in Paris is no 'fluke'
    'Every single French Jew I know has either left or is actively working out how to leave', he said
    Experts believe that more than 100,000 French Jews have left since 2013 
    France's Chief Rabbi has said after a number of attacks on Jews in the past year: 'Jews murdered were targeted specifically because they were Jewish'
    Policing stepped up across British Jewish areas, community body says
    Mayor's office has announced closure of shops in famous Jewish area


Jews are fleeing terror-hit Paris because of growing anti-Semitism in France, one of Britain's most influential Jewish journalists said today.

Stephen Pollard, editor of the Jewish Chronicle, spoke out after an Islamic terrorist took six people hostage and held them captive in a Kosher supermarket in the French capital.

This afternoon police ordered all shops in a famous Jewish neighborhood in central Paris to close.

The mayor's office in Paris announced the closure of shops along the Rosiers street in Paris' Marais neighborhood, in the heart of the tourist district and less than a mile away from the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo where 12 people were killed on Wednesday.

Hours before the Jewish Sabbath, the street is usually crowded with French Jews and tourists alike.

Mr Pollard said today's terror attack in Paris, linked to the massacre at the office of Charlie Hebdo, will force more French Jews to flee the country.

Many are moving to Britain or to Israel, according to a report published in the newspaper last year.

He said the fact that a terrorist had chosen to target a Jewish store was no 'fluke'.

In a series of tweets he said: 'Every single French Jew I know has either left or is actively working out how to leave'.

'So, it's a fluke that the latest target is a kosher grocer, is it?

'What's going on in France - outrages that have been getting worse for years - put our antisemitism problems in perspective'.

The hostage situation in the Porte de Vincennes part of the city is ongoing today.

But amid fears the terror attack may be linked to anti-Semitism police have also demanded that shops on Rue des Rosiers, in the Jewish quarter of Paris, to close early 'as a precaution' in case of further violence. 

18 months ago France had around 500,000 Jewish residents - the largest population in the EU - but this may now be below 400,000, Mr Pollard's newspaper said.

Group of new immigrants from France arrives in Israel
24 Jewish immigrants from France arrived in Israel less than a week after terror attack at kosher supermarket in Paris; among new olim is family of one of the four victims killed in the attack.

Itay Blumenthal
Published:    01.14.15, 09:26 / Israel News

A group of 24 French immigrants arrived at Israel's Ben Gurion Airport on Monday and officially made Aliyah to Israel less than a week after the terror attack at a kosher supermarket in a suburb of Paris. Among the new olim is the family of Yohan Cohen who was killed during the attack in France and was laid to rest in the Givat Shaul cemetery in Jerusalem on Tuesday afternoon.
 
Simcha Felber, the World Zionist Organization's (WZO) representative in France, says that ever since the attack there has been increased interest among the French-Jewish community in immigration to Israel. He said the WZO would assess the situation for Jews wishing to immigrate to Israel. "Only in two to three weeks will we know if this is because of the mood or because of real intentions," Felber said.
 
Simon and Odette Alfasi, that were part of the group that recently immigrated to Israel, are planning to live close to their family in Haifa. "We finally made Aliyah in order to be in our home," said Simon.
 
"We will now live close to our family and grandchildren. We are very excited and happy to see everyone more often now. What is happening now in France is a catastrophe, there are a lot more who want to immigrate and now everyone will come because of the attack that happened," said Simon.
 
Matilda Pariente also arrived in Israel on Monday with her husband. In Paris, she had a long career as a school principal. Matilda said that on the Friday of the deadly attack she was on her way to the Hyper Cacher to buy cookies when she received a phone call that forced her to head home.
 
"Everyone thought that I was in the supermarket and that something happened to me. I had a lot of luck," she said.
 
On her decision to make Aliyah to Israel Matilda said: "For four months now I've been preparing myself. I sold my house and now I'm here, happy and content. All the French understand that the situation (in France) is difficult."
 
Lor Alkoby, 23, was also part of the new immigrants from France and plans to live in Jerusalem. "It is a big change for me. I basically left everything behind: family, friends and work. I always wanted to make Aliyah to Israel because it is my country. I set a date and it was today. I'm happy I fulfilled my dream."
 
Among the new Olim is Yael Yosef, 31, who said she decided to make Aliyah because of a Zionistic outlook. "It says in the Torah that the land of Israel is ours and because of this I came here, because of the commandment from God," says Yosef, who intendeds on living in Jerusalem.
 
Yosef added that the atmosphere in France is difficult after the wave of attacks and the rising tension between Muslims and Jews. "In France there are a lot of problems and the terror is on the rise. There is no future for Jews in France because it is very scary there, and I suggest all Jews immigrate to Israel because there is no longer anything to look for in France."
 
In the coming days, according to the Jewish Agency, more French Jews will arrive in Israel to make Aliyah. Some of them will live in youth centers across Israel. "The Jewish Agency helps all Jews that request to make Aliyah to Israel and works to eliminate barriers for employment. At the same time, we are working to strengthen the Jewish community in France, with security at Jewish institutions in the country among other thing," said Chairman of the Jewish Agency Natan Sharansky.

According to statistics released by the Jewish Agency, in the past two years there has been a dramatic rise in the number of immigrants to Israel from France. For example, in 2014 a record breaking 6,600 new immigrants from France arrived in Israel compared 3,400 that arrived in 2013 and 1,920 that arrived in 2012.

Prospect of Jewish Exodus From Europe as Grave a Problem as Euro Crisis, Says Top EU Official

The prospect of a Jewish exodus from Europe is as grave a problem as the future of the Euro currency, a senior European Union (EU) official has warned.

Speaking in Brussels, European Commission Vice-President Frans Timmermans said that in some EU member states,  “the majority of the Jewish community is not sure they have a future in Europe.”

Jewish fears of an uncertain future on the continent present “a huge challenge to the very foundations of European integration,” Timmermans said.

“We can talk till kingdom come about the euro, about internal markets, about whatever initiative we take,” Timmermans declared, “but if this fundamental value in European society, which is that there is a place for everyone whatever your creed is, whatever your background is, your race is, the choices you make in society – if that is challenged, we have to answer that challenge by a policy that offers hope and prospects for everyone in European society.”

In the past, Timmermans has spoken with a rare sensitivity about Israel, while making clear that he disagrees with the policies of the current Israeli government. In 2013, while still serving as the Foreign Minister of The Netherlands, Timmermans told an audience in Jerusalem that Europe judges Israel from a different standard to other Middle Eastern states because it is seen as “a European country.”

Last year, Timmermans made it clear that the Dutch government opposes the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement targeting Israel, saying at the same time that he “discouraged” Dutch companies from conducting business with Israeli communities in the West Bank.

In December 2013, Timmermans was accused by some Dutch politicians of advising the government-owned Vitens water company to abandon a project with Israeli water company Mekorot, while remaining involved with similar projects in Hamas-ruled Gaza. While Vitens decided in the end to stop working with Mekorot, Timmermans claimed afterwards that his office had no objections to the Israeli company.

Report: France the Most Dangerous Country for Jews

Anti-Semitism Report for 2014, chronicling anti-Semitic incidents worldwide, will be presented during PM's Cabinet meeting Sunday.


The Anti-Semitism Report for 2014 will be presented Sunday during Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's weekly Cabinet meeting, Channel 2 News reported.

The Chairman of the World Zionist Organization, Avraham Duvdevani and WZO's Department for Countering Anti-Semitism, Yaakov Haguel, will present the report as well as a comprehensive questionnaire conducted among Diaspora Jews.

The report contains an overview of anti-Semitic incidents worldwide in 2014 as well as documents the main issues faced by Jewish communities in the Diaspora.

According to the report, 2014 saw a significant increase in anti-Semitic incidents, including violent attacks against Jews. Additionally, the report found, local governments are not doing enough to eradicate the incidents and violence.

July and August particularly saw a 400% increase in anti-Semitic incidents from 2013 - as a result of Operation Protective Edge.


"The war in Gaza was the trigger to express hatred for Israel and release the reins from anti-Semitism," said Roger Cukierman, the president of the Representative Council of Jewish Organizations in France and the Vice Chairman of the World Jewish Congress.

"Almost immediately, criticism of Israel or opposition to the war turned into sweeping calls against the Jews."

The report also notes that 2014 showed a marked increase in terrorism as well as violent attacks against Jewish targets, committed primarily by perpetrators affiliated with Islamic or radical movements.

Islamic anti-Semitism has become the leading form of anti-Semitism in the West. In fact, many of the reported anti-Semitic incidents were committed by Muslims, especially in countries with large Muslim populations.


Hate speech and anti-Semitism online and on social media has also become a worsening trend. Holocaust denial is extensive online and many websites are being used as a breeding ground for hate.

The report also notes that the world-wide campaign (through boycotts and other measures) to delegitimize and demonize Israel poses a major threat to Jewish communities around the world, including Israel's.

Another troubling finding is the alarming rise in cases of anti-Semitic violence across Europe.

France is currently ranked as the most dangerous country for Jews. Anti-Semitic incidents rose 100% in France with half of the incidents classified as "racist" being directed against Jews, even though Jews make up less than one percent of the population in the country.

Anti-Semitic violence is up in Great Britain and the Netherlands as well. In Germany, the number of anti-Semitic incidents doubled in 2014. In Belgium, 30% of citizens hold anti-Semitic views.

Anti-Semitism is also a huge problem in South America with more than 50% of respondents to the questionnaire stating that they or someone they know has experienced anti-Semitism.

Most incidents in South America are not violent, but a large percentage of Jews still fear walking around with Jewish symbols and have no faith in the government system to report incidents.

Haguel stated, "We have recently seen a significant increase in manifestations of anti-Semitism around the world."

"The government of Israel must advance the fight against anti-Semitism around the world and strengthen the Jews in the Diaspora."

"We cannot remain indifferent to the phenomenon of Jews being targeted simply because they are Jews. We cannot let the events of the past repeat themselves."

Report: Jews continue to leave Europe
From 9.5 million in 1939, the number of European Jews has fallen to 1.4 million; and as anti-Semitism appears to be on the rise in the continent, some speak of a new 'exodus.'


Published:    02.09.15, 22:45

The last several decades have seen a precipitous drop in the number of Jews living in Europe, according to a poll published Monday by the Pew Research Center.

The report estimated that there were 3.2 million European Jews in 1960, which fell to 2 million by 1991, and to 1.4 million in recent years.

Emigration was particularly extensive in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. An estimated 3.4 million Jews lived in the European USSR in 1939. Following the catastrophic population decrease resulting from the Holocaust, the number was reduced to 2 million.
 
But emigration since 1945 has left 310,000 Jewish inhabitants. In Eastern European countries, the 4.7 million-strong Jewish community has dwindled to less than 100,000.

The report noted that while most of decline can be attributed to emigration to Israel, intermarriage and assimilation could also be factors.

Meanwhile, the decline appeared to be less severe in some Western European countries, whose Jewish population in 1939 was relatively smaller to begin with. About the same number of Jews live in France today as in 1939, while the number of Jews in the United Kingdom has dropped from 345,000 to 280,000.
 
However, the report noted recent reports of increased emigration from France, as well as new report showing a record level of anti-Semitism in the UK.
 
The report said 10 percent of the world's Jews live in Europe, down from 57 percent in 1939 and 35 percent in 1945.

Europe’s Jewish Population Continues to Plummet

If you ignore the cringe-worthy opening line of this article from the Pew Research Center – the Holocaust did far worse than “decimate” Europe’s Jewish population – you will find some interesting facts. In a nutshell, Europe’s Jewish population continues to decline. There are now approximately 1.4 million Jews living in Europe, compared to 9.5 million in 1939. Only 10 percent of the world’s Jews now live in Europe, and a mere 0.2 percent of Europeans are Jewish.

Netanyahu urges Jews to move to Israel after Copenhagen attacks
2/15/15

Jerusalem (AFP) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday urged European Jews to move to Israel after a Jewish man was killed in an attack outside Copenhagen's main synagogue.

"Israel is your home. We are preparing and calling for the absorption of mass immigration from Europe," Netanyahu said in a statement, repeating a similar call after attacks by jihadists in Paris last month when four Jews were among the dead.

Two police officers were also wounded in Sunday's attack in Copenhagen, one of two fatal shootings in the normally peaceful Danish capital on the weekend.

In the first attack on Saturday, a 55-year-old man was killed at a panel discussion about Islam and free speech attended by a Swedish cartoonist behind controversial caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed.

"Extremist Islamic terrorism has struck Europe again... Jews have been murdered again on European soil only because they were Jews," Netanyahu said in the statement.

The Israeli prime minister said his government was to adopt a $45 million (39.5 million euro) plan "to encourage the absorption of immigrants from France, Belgium and Ukraine".

"To the Jews of Europe and to the Jews of the world I say that Israel is waiting for you with open arms," Netanyahu said.

He had made a similar call after three days of bloodshed in Paris that started with the January 7 attack on satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo where 12 people were gunned down, followed the next day by the shooting death of a policewoman just outside the city.

On January 9, the gunman who killed the policewoman took hostages at a kosher supermarket in Paris. He killed four Jewish hostages before police shot him dead when they raided the store.

The bodies of the four were later flown to Israel where they were buried.

Officials in Copenhagen described the weekend attacks as an act of terror and said the man believed to be behind the shootings was shot dead after opening fire on police at a rail station.

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman sent condolences to Danish counterpart Martin Lidegaard over the attacks, telling him Israel "appreciates Denmark's cooperation in maintaining the security of Israelis and Jews in Denmark."

The foreign ministry quoted Lieberman as telling Lidegaard that Israel was "ready for any cooperation required on this issue".

The Palestinians also condemned the attack "in the strongest terms," with PLO official Saeb Erakat calling the Copenhagen attacks "absolutely unjustifiable."

"Terrorism knows no religion or nationality, and our opposition to such violence must be firmly united. We stand in solidarity with the Danish people," Erakat said in a statement.

Jewish cemetery vandalized in eastern France amid tensions
2/15/15

PARIS (AP) — Hundreds of graves have been vandalized at a Jewish cemetery in eastern France, in what the president called an "odious and barbaric" anti-Semitic act against French values.

The vandalism comes at a time of growing insecurity among French Jews and amid general religious tensions in Europe, after Islamic radicals attacked a kosher market and a satirical newspaper in Paris last month and similar attacks hit Denmark this weekend.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said in a statement Sunday that a criminal investigation team is at the damaged cemetery in Sarre-Union, near the German border, and authorities will do "everything" to pursue the vandals.

Jewish and Muslim gravesites and places of worship in France see sporadic but frequent vandalism. The incident this weekend was of an unusually large scale, and hit a cemetery that has been vandalized in the past. Local media reported that about 200 grave stones were knocked down, and a monument to Holocaust victims was damaged.

French President Francois Hollande said in a statement that "France is determined to fight relentlessly against anti-Semitism and those who want to attack the nation's values."

Hollande visited the Danish Embassy in Paris on Sunday, and a crowd waving candles gathered to show solidarity with the victims of the Copenhagen attacks.

"We need stand together in Europe and in all the world wherever jihadis try to threaten democracy," said Sacha Reingewirtz, president of the Union of Jewish Students of France.

Many French Jews feel increasingly worried about anti-Semitism, particularly coming from young Muslims who embrace radical ideology propagated online.

France has Europe's largest Jewish population, about half a million. More than 7,000 emigrated to Israel last year.

France's leading Muslim groups denounced the attacks in Paris and Copenhagen, and are frustrated that Islam is often associated with terrorism.

Italy to vote on recognition of Palestinian statehood
Italian Democratic Party says it would back motion, as Israeli embassy in Rome says 'any premature recognition would only encourage Palestinians not to resume talks'.

Ynetnews
Published:    02.19.15, 09:08 / Israel News

The Italian parliament is expected to cast a vote on the recognition of a Palestinian state as soon as Thursday, following similar moves by other European Union countries, the Italian news agency ANSAmed reported.
 
While most developing countries recognize Palestine as a state, most Western European countries do not, supporting the Israeli and US position that an independent Palestinian state should emerge from negotiations with Israel.
 
The Italian Democratic Party (PD) said it would back the motion, as did MPs from the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S), while Italy's far-right Northern League and center-right Forza Italia party announced it would vote against it.
 
The ANSAmed report cited a statement issued by the Israeli embassy in Rome in which it spoke out against the proposed resolution, saying: "It is clear that any premature recognition would only encourage Palestinians not to resume talks with Israel and it would make the possibility of peace less likely''.
 
The parliaments of several European countries, including Britain, France and Spain, have in recent months passed non-binding votes recognizing Palestine, angering Israel.
 
Israel is committed to the establishment of a Palestinian state under a peace agreement, but says such resolutions encourage the Palestinians to avoid negotiations. On October 30, Sweden's government became the first western European nation in the EU to recognize Palestinian statehood. Since then, lawmakers in Britain, Spain and Ireland have approved non-binding motions urging recognition.
 
Recently, members of the European Parliament began debating whether they can agree on a common approach for the European Union's 28 member states.
