Dear Friends,

CAM’s global anti-Semitism report this week highlights 36 new media reports of anti-Semitic incidents (44% far-right, 28% far-left, 20% Islamist, and 8% unidentifiable).

At Rutgers University, eggs were thrown at the Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi during the group’s 24-hour “reading of names” to commemorate Yom HaShoah. Meanwhile, California Polytechnic State University’s student government adopted the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism, after another recent anti-Semitic hate crime that targeted that campus’ Jewish fraternity.

The elite Paris college Sciences Po was defaced with anti-Semitic graffiti reading “Death to Israel,” and “Kafir” (Arabic for “infidel”). Shortly thereafter, a top French court determined that Kobili Traore cannot stand trial for the brutal 2017 killing of Jewish grandmother Sarah Halimi because he had smoked marijuana. The killer tortured Halimi while shouting anti-Semitic words before throwing her out of her apartment window.

This ruling raises serious questions about France’s ability to prosecute anti-Semitic hate crimes under the rule of law. Meanwhile, a bipartisan group in the U.S. Congress reintroduced the No Hate Act, to improve hate crime reporting and help law enforcement prosecute anti-Semitic and other racist hate crimes.

This weeks marks the start of the month of Ramadan, the most important time of the year on the Islamic calendar. CAM wishes a blessed and meaningful Ramadan to all who are celebrating!

Join CAM and the American Muslim & Multifath Women’s Empowerment Council (AMWEC) for the second annual Interfaith Iftar (Ramadan break-fast) next Wednesday!

This week, the State of Israel celebrated 73 years of independence.

A bastion of cultural and religious diversity, Israel is the homeland of the Jewish people, who – after 2,000 years of persecution in exile – returned to rebuild their nation and to live as a free people in their ancestral land.

Happy birthday, Israel!
