Ian Hudghton (Greens/EFA) ‒ Paragraph 42 is fairly straightforward in condemning the rising anti-Semitism in Europe and attacks on Jewish people. Paragraph 43 is similarly straightforward in its condemnation of attacks on Europe's Islamic communities. What is shocking is that a large number of the ECR group chose to vote against these paragraphs. These votes underline the problem of racism in Europe and it is shameful that the UK Conservative party allies itself with these racists.
