Anti-Semitism- How Much Do You Know About It? Episode #7



Take the Anti-Semitism Survey

The Anti-Defamation League published a broad survey of worldwide anti-Semitism in 2015, that it conducted among 50,000 people from 100 countries. The results show that one-quarter of the world is anti-Semitic. Fifty percent of Muslims, a quarter of Christians and even a fair number of Buddhists were found to be anti-Semitic on the basis of the survey. Now in 2018 things have only gotten worse.There were 1,986 incidents of anti-semitism in the United States in 2017, the ADL found, which included vandalism and physical assaults. The incidents occurred in all 50 states, and the spike was the highest during the first three months of the year.

On the survey, anyone who agreed with at least SIX (6) of the supposedly anti-Semitic statements was defined as anti-Semitic.

Anti-Semitic incidents in the United States increased nearly 60% from 2016 to 2017, according to a new report from the Anti-Defamation League — the largest one year increase since the organization began tracking the information nearly four decades ago.

There were 1,986 incidents of anti-semitism in the United States in 2017, the ADL found, which included vandalism and physical assaults. The incidents occurred in all 50 states, and the spike was the highest during the first three months of the year.

During 2017, Jewish cemeteries across the country were vandalized, Jewish community centers were evacuated due to bomb threats, and a white nationalist march in Charlottesville that turned deadly filled with protesters shouting “Jews will not replace us.” The ADL counted 163 instances of bomb threats against Jewish institutions, a 41% increase from 2016.
