According to the @EURightsAgency Report on #Antisemitism: "Simply being Jewish increases people’s likelihood of being faced with a sustained stream of abuse” with Antisemitic harassment being so common, that it has becomes “normalized.”
NB: @SwedeninIL, having suggested just few days ago Swedes among least antisemitic in Europe:

Still trying to get my head around fact 90% of European Jews feel Antisemitism has increased last 5 years, while 71% too afraid to wear Jewish symbols in public!
The Jews of Europe did not need another report to tell them how bad situation is - they need URGENT ACTION.
Condemnations alone are just not enough. We need action. Urgent, immediate & tangible action.
It simply cannot be such that Jews are - once again - singled out, feeling unsafe and questioning their future.
History will judge how the EU responds to this oldest and most enduring of hatreds, #Antisemitism.
