The European Jewish Congress slammed European Union claims that most anti- Semitic attacks are committed by white males. The congress said a report by the E.U. Monitoring Center on Racism and Xenophobia, published Wednesday in Strasbourg, clearly showed that the majority of attacks were committed by “young Muslims of North African origin.” The European Union issued a news release Wednesday claiming that “white far-right youths or traditional anti- Semites perpetrate most incidents of anti-Semitism in Europe,” but the congress said the claim was “in direct contradiction with the EUMC report.”
