Op-Ed: Anti-Semitism and the Jewish Future in Europe

Brian Klug of St Benet’s Hall, University of Oxford:
All surveys have limitations. A limitation is not a defect, but it is necessary to keep the limitations of a survey in mind in order to assess its findings. The FRA report holds up a mirror to the EU Jewish population, giving us a glimpse of how European Jews perceive and experience antisemitism today. In this way, it contributes to our understanding. It does what it does, no more, no less. It does not license sweeping statements about the rise of antisemitism, nor does it warrant gloomy prognostications about Jews leaving Europe in droves.
