THIS WEEK IN ONLINE ANTISEMITISM: PROTESTS IN FRANCE
Mass demonstrations are taking place across France in protest of President Emmanuel Macron’s pension reforms. These demonstrations have become fertile ground for spreading antisemitic content on social media platforms. This week, CyberWell observed a spike in hateful, anti-Jewish posts implicating Jewish people in the protests in France. The prevailing antisemitic theory that CyberWell pinpointed was that France, and President Macron in particular, is allegedly controlled by the Rothschild family. A branch of the family has been in France since the beginning of the 19th century when James Mayer de Rothschild established a bank in Paris.

By ISRAEL ON CAMPUS COALITION (ICC)
This week alone, ICC registered 51 anti-Israel detractor events across colleges and universities in the United States. For the second consecutive week, the number of detractor events fell below its weekly average. This trend most likely reflects a shift in when Israeli Apartheid Weeks were held on campus, with more frequency in the month of March this year than in years past.
Detractor events are events on campus with an anti-Israel agenda. They can include speakers, BDS campaigns, graffiti incidents, demonstrations, etc. Traditionally, these events are hosted by organizations that deny Israel’s right to exist.
