Study: seven violent attacks against Jews registered in Czech Republic in 2009

Seven violent attacks against Jews were registered in the Czech Republic in 2009, according to a study by Tel Aviv University released on Monday. Although it mentions no concrete attack, the study highlights the case of the Czech Workers Party, which was banned by a Czech court earlier this year and which drew attention to what it claimed was a high number of Jews among top Czech officials. The study also warns of an increasing number of anti-Semitic attacks in some EU countries, including the UK which last year registered a steep rise of 69 percent.
