"It's hard being openly
Jewish in Europe today," Gideon Bachar, the Director of the Department
for Combating Anti-Semitism and Holocaust Remembrance in the Foreign
Ministry, said on Monday.
An experts' meeting on
the topic of fighting anti-Semitism and racism conducted in Jerusalem
today led to various estimates as to the future of the Jewish community
in Europe and links between radical Islam and anti-Semitism.
