A third of European Jews contemplate emigration

Even before the latest explosion of anti-Jewish violence and hatred, Jews all over Europe were neither comfortable nor secure.

A poll taken in 2013 showed that “Fear of rising anti-Semitism in Europe has prompted nearly a third of European Jews to consider emigration because they do not feel safe in their home country.” To avoid distorting the data, the poll “focused on eight countries that account for more than 90 percent of Europe’s Jewish population.” The reasons for these sentiments were amply on display when a series of anti-Israel demonstrations across Europe promptly degenerated into open anti-Semitism.
