Report shows that antisemitism remains high in Luxembourg

According to a report of RIAL (Recherche et information sur l’antisémitisme au Luxembourg), the number of antisemitic incidents in Luxembourg remains worryingly high. 76 incidents of antisemitic nature were reported, most of them were online incidents.

The largest number of incidents relate to traditional antisemitism, 42 incidents in total, which represents 55% of the incidents in 2022.

“The most important components are ‘World Domination’ attributed to Jews (25%), followed by ‘Demonization of Jews’ with 14%, negative stereotypes (9%) and Jews as scapegoats (7%)”. 

In addition, contemporary antisemitism had 28 incidents related to the Holocaust and Israel respectively, and in almost equal shares.

“A particularly painful phenomenon is the conjunction of the two, the trivialization of the Holocaust by putting it in equivalence with a fantasized genocide which would be committed against the Palestinians”, comments RIAL.
