Dear Friends,

An almost equal share of reported antisemitic incidents this week originated from the far-left and the extreme right – highlighting the importance of combating antisemitism across the ideological spectrum. CAM Senior Advisor Brig. Gen. (Res) Sima Vaknin Gill expounds upon the growing challenge of fighting expressions of antisemitism within the progressive movement.

This week, a man in Union City, New Jersey was charged for setting fire to a synagogue and yeshiva, while an Orthodox Jewish man was randomly assaulted with a piece of furniture on a Brooklyn street. A new report stated that hate crimes against the Los Angeles Jewish community – the third largest in the world – has increased nearly 60% so far in 2021.

A group of students at Syracuse University were pelted with eggs while antisemitic slurs were yelled at them. In Germany, children’s graves were desecrated at a Jewish cemetery, and a Holocaust memorial was vandalized twice in Grenoble, France.

At the 7th Global Forum Forum for Combating Antisemitism, CAM convened a special panel of municipal leaders to share best practices for combating antisemitism at the local level, and Israel’s President Isaac Herzog warned against the upcoming UN Durban IV conference on racism, for promoting Jew-hatred. Nine countries, have so far announced boycotts – primarily nations that have adopted the IHRA working definition of antisemitism – a key indicator of a country’s willingness to tackle resurgent Jew-hatred.

Meanwhile, Facebook unveiled a new tool to combat Holocaust denial in 12 of the most-spoken languages. Last Sunday, thousands of people united in solidarity against antisemitism at the cross-communal ‘No Fear: Rally in Solidarity with the Jewish People’ in front of the US Capital Building. Smaller solidarity rallies took place in three other cities.

CAM’s weekly global antisemitism report highlights 32 new media reports of antisemitic incidents, including 10 (31%) from the far-right and 9 (28%) from the far-left, as well as 6 (19%) with Islamist motivations, and 7 (21%) unidentifiable in nature.
