France: 84% of Jews consider antisemitism is a big problem

Via: Eye on the World
A study by the Center for Research on Extremism (C-REX) at the University of Oslo on anti-Semitic incidents across Europe has found that not only are anti-Semitic attitudes far more widespread and entrenched among Muslims than among the general population in Western Europe, but that Muslims are behind the vast majority of anti-Semitic incidents across Europe. Where the attacker wasn’t Islamic, it was found that they tended to be from the left of the political spectrum than the right (other than in Germany), thus disabling the widespread view amongs the political elites that only the far right target Jews. 
Digesting data from seven countries across Europe - France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Russia (only acts of violence that transpired between 2005 and 2015 have been counted and used) - the study found that in Europe, the UK had the lowest number of anti-Semitic attacks, while France experienced the highest. Russia stood out with a very low number of registered incidents of anti-Semitic violence in proportion to its large Jewish population (approximately 190,000). Only 33 incidents were recorded over the period 2005–2015. This may be due to Russia being the only nation in the study that hasn't accepted a large number of refugees during the European migrant crisis. (Note that the European migrant crisis has been going on since before 1999 and not just these past few years.)
