Pinchas Goldschmidt, who is the President of the Conference of European Rabbis, tells Stephen Sackur that terrorist attacks on Jews in Europe and “attacks on religious practice” show that “anti-Semitism is back in vogue.”

A survey of European Jews by the EU’s Fundamental Rights Agency, published in December, found that 40 percent were considering leaving their home countries because they no longer felt safe, with the EU warning that anti-Semitism had become “disturbingly normalised”.

You can see the Hardtalk interview in full on Thursday 10 January on BBC World News and the BBC News Channel and after on BBCiPlayer (UK only).
