CFCA - 2015 report - Present situation and tendencies

- The year of 2015 was characterized by escalation in the number of attacks against Jewish targets by Islamic sources, most notably the attacks of Hyper Cacher in Paris (January 2015) and the synagogue in Copenhagen (February 2015).

- The social networks continue to be the central medium of arousal of hatred against Jews, and content of incitement and antisemitic hate speech are found in it, almost without any limits.

- The delegitimization and demonization campaign of Israel carries clear antisemitic expressions and represents the trend of blurring the lines between criticism of Israel and antisemitism. This campaign is one of the central incitement factors against Jews in general, and therefor constitute a significant threat to the Jewish community in the Diaspora.
