Praise for Antisemitism: 2007 Hate Crime Survey
“With this report Human Rights First has again moved antisemitism high on the human rights agenda… This report serves as a much-needed call to European governments to monitor and combat these virulent and deadly new strains of an ancient affliction.”
— Rabbi David Saperstein, Religious Action Center
“Once again Human Rights First has distinguished itself among human rights organizations in seriously addressing antisemitism as a phenomenon in Europe. In this report, the organization links antisemitism to other forms of hatred in Europe, but also identifies its particular characteristics and manifestations…”
— Kenneth Jacobson, Deputy National Director, Anti-Defamation League
“This is a high quality report which explains the more nuanced characteristics that other reports miss, such as that antisemitism appears on its own (for the usual historical reasons), that it is part of a general rise in racist violence (in which Jews may be victims but so could other visible minorities had they been in the wrong place at the wrong time), and that Middle East tensions overspill. It also makes the vital point that states are continuing to fail in their reporting of racist and antisemitic violence.”
— Michael Whine, International Affairs Director, The Community Security Trust (United Kingdom)
