As the world paused this week to commemorate the Holocaust, CAM reported 52 anti-Semitic incidents (60% far-right, 15% far-left, 17% Islamist, and 8% unidentifiable) around the world. Seventy-six years after the liberation of Auschwitz, the resurgence of anti-Semitism is a wake up call to the world that the world must continue to fight so we can believe in an uphold the phrase “Never Again.”
A Jewish family in Argentina was beaten while on vacation by another family shouting anti-Semitic expletives; a Biden administration official was accused of dual loyalty; a Belgian Jewish boy was assaulted outside his home; Palestinian Authority TV blamed the Holocaust on Jews; and a Pakistani court ordered the release of the extremist who beheaded Jewish American journalist Daniel Pearl.
Yet in an unprecedented international showing of solidarity, 74 entities – representing diverse cross sections of society – adopted the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day. These record-setting adoptions included the Republic of Guatemala, the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, universities, sports teams, churches, and businesses across the world.
