The European Union's European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC) releases a report on anti-Semitism. It concludes that attacks on Jews in Europe are rising, and while much of the problem is due to youths of North African descent, the biggest source of anti-Semitism is young white people.

According to the report:

"Although it is not easy to generalise, the largest group of perpetrators...appears to be young, disaffected white Europeans. A further source of anti-Semitism...was young Muslims of North African or Asian extraction. Traditionally anti-Semitic groups on the extreme right played a part in stirring opinion."
