While the report’s data comes from surveys conducted before Oct. 7, FRA reached out to the Jewish umbrella organizations that assisted it in the initial survey after the attack, which saw Hamas and other Gaza-based Islamist militants kill about 1,200 people and take approximately 250 hostage.

Eleven out of 13 organizations responded, saying that antisemitic incidents had skyrocketed. Some organizations reported increases of 400 percent or more.

Rautio said that conflicts in the Middle East “can lead to peaks in anti-Jewish incidents in the EU,” which appears to have happened.

Israel has come under heavy international criticism for its massive military response to the terror attack, which has seen more than 37,000 Palestinians killed, according to the Hamas-run Gaza Ministry of Health.
