Steep Increase in Reports of Anti-Semitic Incidents

The number of reported anti-Semitic incidents in 2014 in the Netherlands was the highest in five years. The Center for Information and Documentation Israel (CIDI) reported 171 incidents in 2014 as against 100 in 2013.  These do not include incidents on social media outlets.  Incidents on social media are reported by another independent organization, MDI, which reported 238 anti-Semitic expressions, of which 188 are considered criminal under Dutch law. CIDI says that the reported incidents are a mere fraction of the total number of incidents.
