The ongoing conflict in the Middle East is significantly affecting the security and stability of European communities. Recent incidents, including the arson attack on a synagogue in Berlin and an attempted arson at a mosque in Bochum, Germany, underscore the growing security apprehensions in Europe. Amid this conflict, religious communities in Europe, especially the Jewish and Muslim communities, are witnessing a notable surge in hate-related attacks.
This survey aims to gather information regarding cases of incidents at and against places of worship following the start of the Middle East conflict. The survey findings may be publicly disclosed and shared with our stakeholders, but any personally identifiable details, such as the names of places of worship, will be kept anonymous. This study seeks to raise awareness of the prevailing threats faced by religious sites and communities in Europe.
