EJC CALLS ON EUROPEAN GOVERNMENTS TO CLAMP DOWN ON ANTISEMITISM AFTER BRITISH JEWISH TEEN AND DUTCH HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS BRUTALLY ATTACKED Print E-mail
Wednesday, 09 September 2015 07:55
The European Jewish Congress has called on European governments and law enforcement agencies to enact tougher laws and punishments for racist and anti-Semitic attacks after a British Jewish teen was beaten unconscious only a few days after two Holocaust survivors were brutally attacked in their Amsterdam apartment.

“Europe is rightly talking a lot about the lessons learnt from the Second World War in relation to the refugee crisis,” Dr. Moshe Kantor, President of the EJC, said. “However, another lesson is that when Jews are beaten in broad daylight on our streets and in homes, then European tolerance is clearly on the wane.”
“Unfortunately, as usual, the Jews, unwillingly, act as a canary in the coalmine for Europe and these attacks are demonstrating once again that Jews are made to feel unsafe around the continent.”
A Jewish teenager was knocked unconscious in what Manchester police are treating as a hate crime. The boy, 17, was one of four young people assaulted Saturday night by three men at a Metrolink tram station near Heaton Park, located in the heart of Manchester’s Jewish community.
“A message needs to be sent very clearly that hate crimes will come with a maximum penalty and violence against minorities will be dealt with severely by the authorities,” Dr. Kantor continued.
