The Anti-Defamation League's Task Force on Harassment and Journalism has released a new report detailing a troubling, year-long rise in anti-Semitic hate targeting journalists on Twitter, with data showing that the harassment has been driven by rhetoric in the 2016 presidential campaign and identifying some of the groups and individuals responsible.
Concerned at the startling resurgence of anti-Semitism in the United States and around the world, ADL this fall is convening a first-of-its-kind summit focused on contemporary anti-Semitism, the urgent challenges that it poses to Jewish communities at home and abroad, and to explore innovative strategies by which to address this challenge.
"The Abbas approach should be rejected by the international community, not merely because of its bias against Israel, but also because it recycled the same-old ideas that have pushed Palestinians down the pointless loop of delegitimizing Israel rather than the hard climb of reaching compromise."
Jonathan Greenblatt, ADL CEO, from an op-ed in JTA on Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ remarks at the United Nations.
Mr. Greenblatt explains why the recent high level forum at the United Nations headquarters on global anti-Semitism was a noteworthy occasion.
