Foreign Minister: Everyone is Basically a Racist

Foreign Minister Timmermans said that the search for a scapegoat is one of the demons which has pursued Europeans for centuries. The Jews and the Roma were the scapegoats in the past and now they are the Muslims. According to Timmermans, racism is present in all people. To suppress this, is a triumph of humanity. He called anti-Semitism an expression of “one of the darkest parts of the European soul.” He added that “it is the greatest challenge for us as Europeans to act against it all the time.”
