On November 13 2014, America's ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power delivered a staunch warning to about 2/3 of UN member states about the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe.  Power stated "make no mistake - we have a problem", referring to the recent rise in anti-Semitic crimes and sentiments all over Europe.  German Chancellor Angela Merkel was singled out by Samantha Power as one of the only heads of state in Europe who has stood strong in the face of anti-Semitism. 

The US State Department's Special Envoy on anti-Semitism, Ira Foreman, reported in March 2015 that many Jewish organizations in Europe were experiencing financial hardship due to the growing need for security measures to protect Jewish citizens. Foreman stated that "Every Jewish community in western Europe certainly needs security support. Many of them are being bankrupted by the money they have to spend to protect their institutions. If current trends continue, and they're not good... we have to worry about small Jewish communities in Europe and their very viability."

The following report, commissioned by the European Union Monitoring Center on Racism and Xenophobia following concerns about the noticeable increase in anti-Semitic acts in Europe in April 2012, was eventually not released by the EU presumably because it points out significant Muslim involvement in European anti-Semitism.
