Austria’s Kurz Declares Fighting anti-Semitism a Priority

Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said on Wednesday his new coalition would focus on fighting anti-Semitism, after Israel made it clear it would not work directly with any ministers from the far-right party now back in government, Haaretz reports.

Austria’s new right-wing government also unveiled their policy goals and a plan for “sanctions” on immigrants who keep their own culture as opposing to assimilate into mainstream Austrian culture.
