Israel urged foreign governments Sunday to halt what it termed the growing number of anti-semitic incidents worldwide in the wake of clashes between its troops and Palestinian protesters, the foreign ministry said.
"These anti-semitic incidents, which include the torching of synagogues, the desecration of Jewish cemeteries, physical attacks against Jewish individuals, graffiti and slurs, should elicit shock and disgust among all civilized people," the ministry said in a statement.
It was particularly concerned by such outbreaks in Europe, the ministry said.
"The foreign ministry calls upon the relevant governments to take immediate action to halt these anti-semitic and racist incidents, and to bring to justice the perpetrators of these criminal acts in accordance with the fullest extent of the law." – JERUSALEM (AFP)
