The Pew Research Center has released a report on the “Latest Trends in Religious Restrictions and Hostilities,” which found that harassment of Jews is growing worldwide despite a downward trend of harassment of other religions. Writes Pew:
In recent years, there has been a marked increase in the number of countries where Jews were harassed. In 2013, harassment of Jews, either by government or social groups, was found in 77 countries (39%) — a seven-year high. Jews are much more likely to be harassed by individuals or groups in society than by governments. In Europe, for example, Jews were harassed by individuals or social groups in 34 of the region’s 45 countries (76%).
Yet more evidence that Europe is on a trend mirroring the social change of the 1930s.
