The ADL presented recommendations for the U.S. government and governments around the world on combatting anti-Semitism at a hearing organized by the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations. ADL urged Members of Congress to “mobilize political will to reject anti-Semitism” and highlighted four main factors relating to anti-Semitism today, which includes the degree of anti-Semitic attitudes held by the general population, the number and nature of anti-Semitic incidents, anti-Semitism in politics and media, and the reaction of governments and civil society to those incidents.
