Jewish organizations across Europe said Tuesday that they are "alarmed" by gains made by far-right parties in the European Union elections. The European Jewish Congress said winning seats in the European Parliament based on "racist, anti-Semitic and xenophobic platforms" shows an erosion of tolerance. The Paris-based umbrella group represents Jewish communities across Europe. In its statement it called the outcome of voting a "clarion call" for the EU to tackle intolerance and racism.
