In a survey among leaders of European Jewish communities, 40 percent of respondents said antisemitism is the most serious threat to the future of Jewish life in their country.

The result appeared in the Third Survey of European Jewish Leaders and Opinion Formers, which was published Monday by the International Centre for Community Development of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, based on replies gathered last year from 314 respondents.

The figure is the highest recorded by JDC since it launched its first survey of this kind in 2008. That year, only 10 percent of respondents ranked the phenomenon as the most serious threat facing their communities. In the following survey, conducted in 2011, that figure rose to 26 percent.

Le Parisien newspaper revealed on Friday a survey including five questions about the Jewish community in France and antisemitic stereotypes.

"When you think about the case of Ilan Halimi, which took place ten years ago, can you tell it symbolizes what can happen as a result of prejudices regarding Jews?" 69% of respondents answered "yes, often" to this question, 12% answered "not really" and 19% did not express their views on antisemitic prejudice.

The first question was followed by a series of four questions asking respondents whether they agree or not with the following statements.

The report, which is based on visits to schools and conversations with dozens of teachers since January 2015, say teachers sometimes feel powerless to change the deep-seated biases and violent attitudes of some pupils, including against Jews.

One female teacher of high-schoolers in Amsterdam told Kleijwegt that following a program about democratic values and against discrimination, a female pupil of Moroccan descent stood up and said: “If I had a Kalashnikov [assault rifle], I’d gun down all the Jews.” She then made shooting gestures and sounds.

This report represents the latest research and a major step forward in efforts to tackle online antisemitism. It also lights a path for tackling other forms of online hate and incitement. Hate in social media is explored empirically, both with respect to its relative prevalence across the major platforms, and with respect to the nature of the antisemitic content. Most significantly, the rate of removal of antisemitic hate speech is reported on by social media platform and by antisemitic category over the last 10 months.

- 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.

L’agression dont a été victime un enseignant juif a été dénoncée par toute la classe politique et les questions sur le port de la kippa ont été largement commentées et relayées par les médias.

70% des Français approuvent l’idée que les Juifs ne doivent pas renoncer à porter la kippa : une approbation presqu’aussi forte à gauche (76%), qu’à droite (71%) et également majoritaire chez les sympathisants du Front national (66%).

Since the Palestinian Authority was established, and continuing throughout 2015, the PA has systematically used Antisemitism to indoctrinate young and old to hate Israelis and Jews. The PA has actively promoted religious hatred by demonizing Judaism and Jews, spreading libels that present Jews as endangering Palestinians, Arabs, and all humanity. The PA presents Jews as possessing inherently evil traits. Jews are said to be treacherous, corrupt, allied with the devil, as well as descendants of apes and pigs. In 2015, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ advisor on Islam and head of PA Shari’ah courts taught on PA TV that Jews throughout history have represented “falsehood… evil… the devils and their supporters… the satans and their supporters.” Accordingly, the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is a conflict of “Allah's project vs. Satan's project."

To mark the one-year anniversary of the tragic attacks on Charlie Hebdo and a kosher supermarket in Paris, Human Rights First has released a major new report detailing the rise of antisemitism and extremism in France and how the United States can work with its key ally to combat resulting violence and hate crime.

The report, “Breaking the Cycle of Violence: Countering Antisemitism and Extremism in France,” is based on months of research and analysis on antisemitism and extremism in France. It examines how the rise of the far right and Islamic extremism are converging in a vicious cycle to fuel intolerance and violence. The report focuses on ways that U.S. government leaders can work with their French counterparts to prevent future attacks, promote greater tolerance and inclusiveness, and chart a path forward that upholds our shared commitment to human rights as an integral part of national security.

En el marco del 80° aniversario de la DAIA, se presenta este nuevo Informe anual sobre Antisemitismo en la Argentina, en cumplimiento de la misión que le dio sustento a su fundación, como representación política de la comunidad judía del país.
Este material de investigación, que elabora el Centro de Estudios Sociales, enumera y analiza todo acto que vulnere el derecho de igualdad de la comunidad judía, a lo largo del período 2014. De esta forma, ponemos a disposición de la opinión pública por décimo séptimo año consecutivo, no sólo un listado con manifestaciones antisemitas, sino también una pieza con un propósito de amplios alcances. El antisemitismo como modo del prejuicio y la discriminación,
es de larga data, por ello, es difícil de erradicar y de desnaturalizar en las tramas sociales. El análisis de esta problemática de magnitud, aún presente en la Argentina y en el mundo, debe ser combatido no sólo desde la ley sino también desde la proposición de intervenciones pedagógicas y educativas.
