The De Standaard newspaper in Belgium has reported that Jews are deserting Antwerp, the country's diamond centre.
The Belgian newspaper has predicted that in fifty years there will be no more Jews living in the city, due to an increase of Anti-Semitism.
It said many young Jews had been leaving the city to study in London, New York or Israel, where they could work more freely while still wearing their Jewish skullcaps, which have made them targets for anti-semites in Antwerp.
It has also become more difficult for them to start a career in Antwerp since the Jewish community lost its dominant position in the diamond trade.
De Standaard commented: "Only the poor Hasidic Jews stay and they refuse to adapt."
