Stopping the assaults across Europe on religious freedoms is 'critical to US government'

US State Department Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism, Ira Forman, said the US government views with concern the mounting of anti-Semitism around the world, which he said has become “dramatically worse in the last decade” and especially since the financial crisis of 2008-2009. 
Speaking at a meeting of the International Council of Jewish Parliamentarians (ICJP) Steering Committee, Forman cited France, Hungary and Venezuela, among others, as countries the US was watching closely and said that stopping the assaults across Europe on religious freedoms, such as male circumcision, was “critical to the US government.”
