European Parliament resolution on anti-Semitism omits to include Israel as an excuse for modern anti-Semitism

Israel is the excuse for being anti-semitic in Europe... and the MEPs know it.  Obviously nothing will change.

Via The European Jewish Press:
While praising the adoption Thursday by the European Parliament of a resolution calling for a more vigorous action against rising anti-Semitism in Europe as "an excellent text and a very welcome development," Rabbi Menachem Margolin, Director General of the European Jewish Association (EJA)  deplored what he called ‚"a glaring omission", the fact that it doesn’t include at all Israel as an excuse for modern anti-Semitism. 
"We now have have something concrete and tangible with which to fight the scourge of anti-Semitism", Margolin said. 
He however added that for many diaspora Jews‚ "anti-Semitism is attempted to be masked under and behind anti-Israel activities."
European lawmakers  overwhelmingly approved the resolution. It endorses the working definition of anti-Semitism of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) adopted in May 2016 in Bucharest.
