IJC quoted in Jerusalem Post from historic UN conference on anti-Semitism in New York

The Israeli-Jewish Congress CEO Michel Gourary, who this week attended the special United Nations General Assembly discussion on the rise of anti-Semitism, is quoted in the Jerusalem Post:

“Michael Gourary, CEO of the Israeli Jewish Congress, told the Post he hoped that the conference would not just be “words, words, words.” He had come to the UN with a clear proposal for how EU states could go about implementing stronger laws, including; a comprehensive definition of anti-Semitism; better regulation of the Internet; not allowing radicalized jihadists who travel to Yemen or Syria or Iraq to come back; and stronger protection for Jewish communities.

“Instead of speaking about what they can do concretely, all the discussion right now is about freedom of speech, and spying versus not-spying, by governments on private communications,” Gourary said. “But the real main issue is that in Europe there are so many terror attacks directly targeting Jews.”
