Study: Islamic extremists, leftists most threaten European Jews
In a follow-up to our review of the May 8th, Hope Against Hate symposium, a project of the Jewish Federation of Metro Detroit and the Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, and their narrative that the recent uptick in Anti-Semitism is related to the Trump election, this study shows otherwise. "The University of Oslo Center for Research on Extremism finds that Islamic extremists, followed by left-wing extremists, are the most common perpetrators of anti-Semitic crimes, according to a survey conducted among the countries’ Jewish populations."
This corroborates our conclusion that "badly needed information about the more serious threats from the hard left and Muslim extremist anti-Semitism and how to counter them, were not fully explored."
