Anti-Semitic acts in France remain at levels not seen since the early 1990s, according to a government report. Presented Thursday to Prime Minister Jean- Pierre Raffarin by the National Consultative Committee on Human Rights, the annual report showed that anti-Semitic acts made up almost three-quarters of the total number of racist acts in France in 2003. While the figures fell by 36 percent in the past 12 months, “anti-Semitism remains serious over a long period,” the report said. The CRIF umbrella organization of French Jews, which records anti-Semitic attacks in cooperation with the police, said it had recorded 411 attacks in the first 11 months of 2003.
