Britain pursued an active role in the Middle East and in the peace process. Antisemitic acts increased by 16 percent. The number of day schools increased. The French Prime Minister visited Israel to encourage peace negotiations. Dozens of anti-Jewish incidents occurred in France. A court case on kosher slaughter had potential implications for Islam. Holland generally conformed to the European Union's Middle East policy. Italy and Israel had numerous political, commercial, cultural, scholarly and touristic exchanges throughout the year. Relations between Jews and the Vatican were strained as the year ended. Switzerland focused on the Palestinian riots that took place near the end of the year. Far-right activities increased.
