‘Jews facing harassment in more countries’

The number of countries where Jews face harassment is growing, despite a downturn in hostile acts involving all religions worldwide, according to a report published in Washington.

The Pew Research Center says harassment of Jews was reported in 77 out of 198 countries in 2013 — the highest number in seven years.

“Jews are much more likely to be harassed by individuals or groups in society than by governments,” it said in a 86-page report.

“In Europe, for example, Jews were harassed by individuals or social groups in 34 of the region’s 45 countries,” it added.
