Poll: Anti-Semitism prompts nearly one-third of European Jews to mull emigration

(JNS.org) Almost one-third (29 percent) of European Jews have considered emigrating over the past five years because they did not feel safe as Jews in their home country, according to a new survey by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights.

Twenty-one percent of respondents said they experienced anti-Semitism through a physical attack or another form of harassment during the last year, and 52 percent said they fear their children will be subjected to a physical anti-Semitic attack. Seventy-six percent of respondents who experienced anti-Semitic harassment over the last five years said they did not report the harassment to any authorities.
