Britain remained committed to the Middle East peace process. Antisemitic acts increased substantially. The number of Jewish births decreased. The French people supported Clinton's proposals for resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. France had a growing problem of anti-Jewish incidents coming from a largely Muslim base. Israel's image deteriorated in Belgium, which was expressed in an outbreak of "Judeophobia." The Netherlands maintained economic and political support for the Palestinian Authority and there was much criticism of Israeli policies. Italy focused much of it's foreign policy on Israeli-Palestinian conflict and other Middle East tensions. Switzerland expressed pro-Palestinian support.
