Letter Urges Obama to Raise Antisemitism and Hate Crime with Greek Prime Minister

Greece has seen a resurgence of violent antisemitic incidents in recent years, and the Golden Dawn, an antisemitic political party, holds seven percent of seats in the Greek Parliament while blatantly engaging in xenophobic rhetoric.
