Islamophobia and Anti-Semitism on the Rise

In a new report of the European Commission Against Racism and Intolerance, (ECRI) it warns against growing discrimination of Moslems and mentions a rise in anti-Semitism. The report says that the dislike of Moslems has been greatly increased since September 11, 2001, and the murder of media-maker Theo Van Gogh by an extremist Moslem in 2004. Anti-Semitism is rising in particular among the younger generation. The word Jew is increasingly used as an insult and also Holocaust denial is on the rise.
