Netherlands : Report on Antisemitism (English summary)
The number of Antisemitic incidents registered in 2016 is 13% smaller than in.
Noteworthy is the decline in the number of incidents in and around schools, for the first time in three years. The number of sports-related incidents, mainly soccer, is still high. Unfortunately, since the beginning of 2017, we see a significant increase in this category.
Also noteworthy is an increase in the number of verbal-abuse incidents, as well as the number of incidents in the ‘traditional’ media (newspapers, radio and TV.).
Vandalism and physical-abuse are still a great concern.
The prominence of Internet, and particularly the social media as means of communication is rapidly growing.
These platforms influence strongly the behaviour in the “real” world.
