THIS WEEK’S GLOBAL ANTI-SEMITISM REPORT

This week has raised alarm bells in Jewish communities around the world. An explosion in antisemitic violence and rhetoric under the guise of anti-Israel activism has led to the targeting of Jews in the streets of major cities across North American and Europe. 

Jewish Americans have been attacked and assaulted by roving groups of anti-Israel agitators in Los Angeles, New York, and Florida. Several American synagogues have been vandalized.

Antisemitic incidents in the UK have increased 600%. Several British Jews have been attacked in the streets by antisemitic gangs, and a car caravan flying Palestinian flags drove through Jewish neighborhoods in London chanting: “F**k Jews, Rape Their Mothers, Rape Their Daughters.”

Dozens of other alarming incidents of incitement and violence have taken place in BerlinParisBrusselsRomeViennaTorontoMontreal and elsewhere. Meanwhile, Pakistan’s Foreign Minister used antisemitic slurs during a CNN interview, and Turkish President Erdogan was condemned by the US State Department for invoking classical blood libels against Jews, potentially inciting further violence. 

Jews around the world are frightened – and the silence and inaction by many civic leaders is deafening.

We See You. We Hear You.  We Stand With You

CAM’s weekly global anti-Semitism report highlights 77 new media reports of anti-Semitic incidents: 43 incidents (56%) with Islamist motivations, 14 incidents (18%) from the far-left, 6 incidents (8%) from the far-right, and 14 unidentifiable incidents (18%). We will continue to monitor these developments over the coming days. If you need assistance in responding to an outbreak of antisemitism, please reach out.
