Anti-semitic incidents up in Holland...

Fortunately, most are violent....
Anti-Semitic incidents in the Netherlands have leapt by 64 percent last year, according a report by a veteran Jewish non-profit organization.

In its report, released on Thursday, the Hague-based Center for Information and Documentation on Israel lists 261 cases of non-physical anti-Semitic attacks - compared to 159 in 2005.

The report, which covers all of 2006 and the first four months of 2007, listed eight cases of violent anti-Semitic attacks and seven cases of "violent behavior." The organization's director, Dr. Ronny Naftaniel, told Haaretz yesterday that most of the incidents recorded occurred on the streets of Amsterdam.

"Some cases involved shouting and insults at people wearing a skull-cap," Naftaniel said. "Other attacks came via e-mail. Many Jewish organizations and some private persons received hate mail last year."

The report lists the Second Lebanon War as a possible cause for the attacks. "The research focused only on unmistakably anti-Semitic incidents and remarks," the report says. According to the document, criticism of Israel was not included in the report.
