Question for written answer E-001054-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Beatriz Becerra Basterrechea (ALDE)

 Subject:  Rise in anti-Semitism and follow-up to the amendment on promoting non-discrimination and equality adopted as part of the 2018 budget procedure
 Answer in writing 

The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) recently published a study in which 90% of the Jewish people surveyed stated that members of their community are exposed to hatred both on the Internet and in their everyday lives. What is more, 30% acknowledged that they had experienced some form of harassment. Similarly, a recent Eurobarometer survey highlighted the fact that 89% of European Jews believe that hatred against their community has increased.

In France, which has the world’s third-largest Jewish community, the government has revealed that there was a 74% increase in anti‐Semitic crimes in 2018.

Before these findings emerged, an amendment and a budget line (33 02 02) on combating anti-Semitism in particular were adopted as part of the European Union’s 2018 budget procedure.

Given that the situation has worsened since the amendment was adopted, and in the light of the undertaking given by the Commission:
1. What is being done to follow up the amendment referred to above?
2. What measures are being taken under the budget line to implement the proposals set out in the amendment?
3. In the light of the above, are there plans to take further measures to combat anti-Semitism?
