Question for written answer P-006119-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Filiz Hyusmenova (ALDE)

 Subject:  Combating anti-Semitism in Europe
 Answer in writing 

On 15 September, on the eve of a major Jewish holiday, gravestones in the Jewish cemetery in Sofia were vandalised.

In its resolution on combating anti-Semitism (2017/2692 (RSP)) of May 2017, the European Parliament noted that ‘the number of anti-Semitic incidents in EU Member States has risen significantly in recent years’ and called on the Member States to ‘take all necessary steps to actively contribute to ensuring the security of their Jewish citizens’ and ‘appoint national coordinators on combating anti-Semitism’.

In this connection:
1. What tangible security measures is the Commission contemplating to combat and prevent these continuing acts of anti-Semitism in Europe?
2. Has the Commission, after consulting with the Council and Member States, launched the process of appointing national coordinators, with a view to keeping a closer check on the campaign against anti-Semitism? Have some Member States already appointed such coordinators?
3. What steps is the Commission taking as regards support for a stronger mandate for the European Coordinator on combating anti-Semitism and to define that role most effectively?
