The Anti-Defamation League criticized prosecutors in Vienna for deciding not to prosecute an Austrian lecturer for reviving the blood-libel slander against Jews. The prosecutors said there was “not enough evidence” to bring hate-crime charges against Robert Prantner. The ADL said Prantner had propagated anti- Semitism when he published an article last December in an Austrian right-wing journal claiming that Jews had killed Christians in the Middle Ages to use their blood for ritual purposes.
