Moshe Kantor: Jews are the only ones being targeted for any world conflict

Moshe Kantor, president of the European Jewish Congress (EJC), asked why the European-Jewish community is facing violent antisemitism, and threats to its existence:
The simple answer is religious hatred. We completely reject the idea, shared by some, that the conflict in the Middle East or Israel is a mitigating factor. It is an absolutely absurd equation, one that would not fit for any other community.

There are tens of violent conflicts raging in the world with death rates of tens of thousands, yet no people in Europe who may have religious, cultural or national ties to these nations have been targeted. This assertion is anti-Semitic because it holds the Jewish people to a different standard to others and justifies further attacks on Jews.
