Government Gave Misleading Information on Declining Anti-Semitism

The Monitor for Discrimination on the Internet (MDI) has said that the Ministry of Housing, Neighborhoods and Integration has claimed, in reply to questions from Parliament, that the number of complaints received regarding anti-Semitism is showing a declining trend. It based itself, in part, on the data of the MDI. This is misleading as although the number of complaints and punishable expressions is stable, the number of punishable expressions against Jews in 2009 was far higher than in other categories.
