Created: 07/22/2014 6:38 AM WHEC.com

The foreign ministers of Germany, France and Italy have condemned what they say is a rise in anti-Semitism in their countries amid protests against the conflict in Gaza.
    
In a joint statement the ministers said Tuesday that "anti-Semitic rhetoric and hostility against Jews, attacks on people of Jewish belief and synagogues have no place in our societies."
    
While the ministers say they respect freedom of speech, they say they will do everything possible to fight "acts and statements that cross the line to anti-Semitism, racism and xenophobia."
