Anti-Semitism in Europe is back, and some blame recent refugees for fuelling it


Existing far-right hatred of Jews in France and Germany is being stoked by recent refugees, say some. A spectre that many hoped had all but disappeared has returned to haunt Europe. The spectre is anti-Semitism, and it has caused great disquiet in the two largest countries of the European Union, Germany and France. Add to that the stain of coded, and in some cases openly anti-Semitic, language in countries farther east in the EU, and the outlook is darkly clouded.
