Or has it always been there, but hidden?

Anti-Semitic behavior has been an ongoing issue in Europe forever. However, reporting on the phenomenon has ratcheted up a notch the past few months. Is that because the activity has increased, the reporting has increased or both? My guess is both, but there's a disturbing undercurrent.

Almost forever, anti-Semitism in Europe was a "Christian" thing -- the ongoing blaming of the Jews for the death of Christ, or the Jewish bankers controlling all the money. From Hitler to the skinheads, it has been there for decades, but the "new" anti-Semitism has apparently shifted from being a "Christian thing" to a "Muslim thing".

So why hasn't the reporting focused on that issue? Could it be politics?
