gerusalemme-porta-dei-leoniThe growing fears of discrimination and violence faced by Jews and Muslims in Europe imply that existing legal instruments and policy measures are not effective enough, MEPs say. On Wednesday evening they will ask Justice Commissioner Věra Jourová to explain what the Commission intends to do to fight hate crime and discrimination and whether it will ask EU member states to adopt specific national strategies to this end.Jewish people in Europe are increasingly afraid of being verbally harassed (46%) or physically attacked (33%), says a recent survey by the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA).
