FSWC Reports:


European Commission President José Manuel Barroso says he opposes the violation of freedom of religion in the continent and plans to convene a special meeting with representatives of the European Union member states to discuss recent events affecting European Jewry.

During a meeting in Brussels with state rabbis, including the president of the Conference of European Rabbis (CER), Barroso said the European Commission would not tolerate the violation of important basic religious rights, like the freedom to conduct the circumcision and kosher slaughter rituals.
