Jew-Haters Using Coronavirus Pandemic to Spread Antisemitism and Anti-Israel Hatred, New Report Says
April 3, 2020
The Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) published a new report on Thursday detailing a surge of antisemitism tied to the global coronavirus crisis.
“Jews as Christ killers. Jews as Shylocks. Jews as disease purveyors. These centuries-old, antisemitic stereotypes are being unleashed once again today,” the SWC said. “The coronavirus pandemic may be new, but Jews have had a long and tragic history of being accused of spreading deadly viruses.”
Today, as the world struggles to deal with coronavirus, Jew-haters are hard at work, once again fueling and spreading antisemitism and anti-Israel hatred by blaming Jews for spreading this new virus,” it added.
