14. While I see your point...
Edited on Tue Jun-03-08 01:11 PM by LeftishBrit
a lot has changed and most Europaean countries nowadays are NOT virulently antisemitic, or at least not when compared to other countries in the world (there are some, mostly East Europaean, exceptions; and sadly antisemitism exists to some degree virtually everywhere). I actually think that the American Christian Right poses a greater danger to Jews today than most EU countries do.

Europe's big form of bigotry today is anti-immigrant bigotry. So if there were suddenly lots of Jewish asylum-seekers - e.g. if, lord forbid, the 'one-state solution' took place - then I wouldn't rule out a return to serious antisemitism. But otherwise, I think Europe is one of the safer parts of the world for Jews - which doesn't mean it's completely safe; nowhere is.

Whether Israel wants to get involved, is of course up to them as well as to the EU.
