On 9 June the European Jewish congress (EJC), a Paris-based umbrella, released a message stating that:
The success of such rabid groups as The Freedom Party in the Netherlands, the Freedom Party in Austria, the Danish People's Party, the British National Party, and Jobbik in Hungary, among others, will sadly only serve to embolden those who espouse the dangerous concepts of extreme nationalism, racism, anti-Semitism and xenophobiaIt has a lot to do with the unviability of Multicultural societies, which have a tendency to dissolve in squabbling tribes combined with the dissolving of financial "glue" of society due to the financial crisis.
The way to deal with it according to the EJC is more repression of the majority ethnic groups:
On behalf of minority communities throughout Europe, we strongly urge the new European Parliament and European Commission to support the implementation and enforcement of comprehensive legislation dealing with racism, xenophobia and anti-Semitism.Such an approach may backfire.
First the Danish People Party and now the Dutch Freedom Party (PVV), both parties with strong Pro-Israeli stances have been taken off the list since 9 June.
