IT’S 1938 ALL OVER AGAIN, according to Roger L. Simon:

Yes, of course I am being rhetorical and, of course, history does not repeat itself exactly. It comes back as farce, Marx famously said, but the farce seems to get darker with each passing year. Well, here we are with yet another 1938-like episode, this time enacted by the faceless bureaucrats of the European Union’s own racism watchdog committee–the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia in Vienna. These apparatchiks of the “New” Europe had asked for a study of anti-Semitism in the EU and guess what they did when they received it? … They completely SHELVED THE REPORT!

Which makes incidents like this none too surprising.
