(Fox News) Talia Kaplan - The UN on Monday released a report, "Combating Antisemitism to Eliminate Discrimination and Intolerance Based on Religion or Belief," which stressed that the "prevalence of anti-Semitic attitudes and the risk of violence against Jewish individuals and sites" is significant and appears to be increasing.
