You can read full report, most extensive in years, here: bit.ly/2Qovhjh

But thread below on some of these jarring figures:
@EURightsAgency @TimmermansEU @VeraJourova @kschnurbein @EUinIsrael @EGiaufretEU @IsraelinEU ➡️ 90% of Jews feel #Antisemitism has increased over past 5 years.

➡️ 89% of Jews think Antisemitism is most problematic on the internet & on social media.

➡️ 71% avoid Jewish symbols (e.g., kippah, Star of David, etc) in public things that could identify them as Jewish.

I have just read this column written by Dutch officials from the Ministry of Finance on Eurozone reform "A more stable EMU does not require a central fiscal capacity" | VOX, CEPR Policy Portal voxeu.org/article/more-s… Here my thoughts... (thread)...
Needless to say that the position of the officials from the Ministry of Finance of the Netherlands is diametrically opposed to what we have written @voxeu voxeu.org/article/beyond… and which emanates from the view of the 22 Spanish experts on the Euro realinstitutoelcano.org/wps/portal/rie…
This debate is of course interesting because it defines broadly the positions of the #Netherlands and #Spain in the debate on Eurozone reform. Remember we had the Eurogroup meeting this week and we will have the definitive Euro summit on the current package of reforms next week

I want to talk a minute about how #Brexit is viewed by most of the #Dutch here in the #Netherlands.

1/
The #Dutch are mostly bewildered by #Brexit and why anyone would want to leave.

We do have a small EU critical faction in parliament (PVV+FvD=32 seats out of 150), but 4/5ths of the electorate are either uncaring or moderately to rabidly pro EU.

Our #economy stands to take quite a hit from Brexit. Up to a few percent, even.

economics.rabobank.com/publications/2…

This is seen as a betrayal by most #Dutch, who take the
health of our economy very seriously, especially after supporting Britain's liberal ideas in the #EU

If the #Netherlands do block #Albania’s EU negotiations they’ll only be confirming what has so far been talked about only in hushed voices: there is no “Western Balkans 6”, there’s a “Western Balkans 2”. ALB, MK, BiH, KOS do not have membership prospects — not now, maybe never.
France & the Netherlands are merely out ahead of the pack. But it’s been clear for sometime that the Brussels establishment only has a credible commitment to Serbia & Montenegro. Bringing them into the fold, some believe makes membership for the other four a moot point.
As I describe in my book, logic is there’s enough of a political infrastructure to “contain/maintain” any potential chaos at acceptable levels (for the EU) in these 4 states, while “normalizing” relations w the 2 who have historically been architects of the worst troubles.

#storytime: [Thread] The dark sides of “social” enterprises - #Ableism in disguise

The other day, I was referred to the owner a social enterprise in order to apply job in my profession. The org seemed impressed by my portfolio and I eventually got invited to a job interview.
It all sounded promising and I was excited to meet with the company. Everything went well until they asked about my expectations. I was a bit surprised, since I was already in the job interview, but I highlighted that I’m looking for employment or at least continuous remote work.
Much to my shock, the only thing this organization had to offer was a “sheltered workshop”, where I would be working for free and maybe one day, some employer might hire me on a subsidized job, where I can only be paid minimum wage.

The representative for the #Netherlands is trying to shame #Russia into not using its veto to defend Bashar al-Asad's "mass atrocities". Best of luck ....
Amb. @nikkihaley asked about gas attacks and then attacks on the first-responders: "Who does this? Only a monster does this."

#Russia's hands are "covered in the blood of Syrian children", the Ambassador says, and "cannot be ashamed ... we have tried that before."
Amb. @nikkihaley attacks #Russia for its backing of #Asad, something "no civilized government" would do; its help in directing the siege-and-starve campaigns in #Syria; and its assistance to the broader war crimes.

The U.S. "will not be held hostage" to Moscow's veto.

Dear @BBCR4Feedback
Tomorrow I will post a package of #StopBrexit paraphernalia to you
The materials are used by the Remain campaign & have been crowdfunded
I will also post prints of photos from the last 21 months (see thread below) so you can see what you haven't been covering
1/It has taken me several hours to compile nearly 2 years of photos from the #Remain campaign into this 22 page document, however i felt it necessary to do so in order to illustrate to the #BBC the extent and commitment of our campaign which you haven't been acknowledging.
