ACF President Addresses EU Parliamentary Assembly

Rabbi Arthur Schneier addressed the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) and called for the adoption of strong measures to combat the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe.

“A new mutation of anti-Semitism, fanned by extremists on the left and right and radical Islam, is casting a shadow on the core values of Europe” Rabbi Arthur Schneier said in his remarks before the 2007 third session of the Parliamentary Assembly in Strasbourg, France. Rabbi Arthur Schneier, a Holocaust survivor, continued “I am pained that once again we have to confront the demon of anti-Semitism in Europe and the denial of the Holocaust sixty- two years after the defeat of Nazi tyranny.”
