REPORTING. Now that anti-Semitism is on the rise, fear is growing in the Antwerp Jewish district: “1,000 hate messages per hour. We are up. Exhausted”

“There I was, with the spit of an unknown man in my face. Just like that. Because I am Jewish.” Yes, the Jewish community in our country feels increasingly unsafe. In one couple, anti-Semitism went so far that they eventually filed a complaint and received extra police protection. “My wife cries six hours a day. This has to stop,” they say. Our reporter went out to the Jewish quarter in Antwerp and heard what they have been experiencing there in recent days. “A man in a long robe and barefoot took pictures of our houses. Wouldn’t you be afraid? when you see that?”
