Anti-Semitic Attacks up 400% in UK, Double in France | The France News Net - Latest stories | Scoop.it

Anti-Semitic attacks nearly doubled in France in the first seven months of 2014, the country's main Jewish group said Thursday.

The acts included violence against individuals, arson and vandalism, and "exacerbate the growing unease that oppresses Jews in France each day and overshadows their future", CRIF said in a statement.

Yet more worrying, the group added, is the appearance of new forms of violence against Jews - including attacks by organized gangs and the targeting of synagogues, as well as acts of vandalism against Jewish businesses and planned terrorist attacks
