A mixing of apples with oranges.
Any move taken to reject totalitarian islam in our modern, pluralist societies is seen as ”anti-muslim bigotry”, regardless of the facts that surround that highly toxic ideology. Jews and Judaism are not oppressing anyone, Muslims and Islam, are, and has been since its inception. Therein lies the difference, and conflating the two, proves to me beyond a shadow of a doubt that the EU is not interested in combating Jew-hatred at all.

The European Commission wants EU member states to penalize hate speech, as verbal and physical violence against Muslims are on the rise in Europe.
A Eurobarometer public opinion survey reported on Thursday that Muslims suffer from the lowest levels of social acceptance among all religious groups.
The EU Fundamental Rights Agency survey on discrimination and hate crime against Jews also showed a rise in anti-Semitism in Europe, with 73 percent of respondents saying they felt anti-Semitism online has become worse over the last five years.
Speaking at the first seminar on combatting anti-Semitism and anti-Muslim hatred in Brussels on Thursday, European Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans said: “The horrific events in Paris and Copenhagen at the beginning of this year have made clear the need for urgent action.”
“In these times of crisis, the capacity of our society for tolerance and inclusion is put to the test,” he said. “Anti-Semitism and anti-Muslim hatred, although very different in history, origins and impact, are both manifestations of this challenge.”
