Europe: Is the latest migrant wave bringing a dark cloud for Europe’s Jews?

Via European Jewish Press (Manfred Gerstenfeld):
Following Germany’s lead over the past two years, Europe has absorbed well over a million refugees and migrants, many of whom fled the bitter intrastate conflicts in war-torn countries such as Syria, Iraq and Libya.  (...)
“European Jews have already paid a major price for the unselective massive immigration of Muslims in the past decades along with Israel,” said Dr. Manfred Gerstenfeld, an emeritus chairman of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, to European Jewish Press. 
Dr. Gerstenfeld, an Austrian born, Dutch educated, Israeli author and expert on anti-Semitism, founded the Center’s Post-Holocaust and Anti-Semitism program. 
According to Dr. Gerstenfeld, the problems for Europe’s Jewish community have been in the making for at least several decades. 
“Some of the problems however were already there irrespective of Muslim refugees,” he stressed. 
 “We cannot isolate the latest migrant wave from the previous ones,” he said, referring to Europe’s decades-long absorption of immigrants from the Middle East and North Africa.
“The most negative thing that has happened to European Jewry since the Holocaust is this massive non-selective influx of Muslims into Europe, even though of course nothing can be compared to the horrors of the Holocaust,” Dr. Gerstenfeld contended.
Noting that “all ideologically-motivated murders of European Jews in this century were carried out by Muslims,” Dr. Gerstenfeld views the EU as having been “a massive importer of anti-Semites.”
The American Jewish Committee (AJC), which has provided assistance to some of the refugees who fled North Africa and the Middle East for Europe over the past two years, has acknowledged the prevalence of anti-Semitism among many of the migrants. 
“Many of the migrants come from countries with deeply anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist roots,” AJC CEO David Harris told European Jewish Press. “It would be hard to believe that simply by leaving those countries behind, they are necessarily leaving behind everything they heard and were taught about Jews and Israel over the span of lifetimes.” 
Dr. Gerstenfeld believes that European society at large should also be anxious.
“Essentially, Europe has also imported a radically alien culture with the many people among the immigrants who do not seek to integrate,” he argued.
