ADL presented its annual analysis of hate crime response in the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) region and called on U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to ensure that the fight against hate crime remains squarely on the OSCE agenda.
The ADL has received a generous multimillion-dollar grant to significantly expand ADL’s polling on global anti-Semitism. Totaling $7.5 million over three years, the grant will be used to establish the ADL Global Anti-Semitism Index, a significant annual barometer of anti-Semitic attitudes around the world.
Anti-Semitic attitudes in ten European countries remain at "disturbingly high levels," according to a new poll from the ADL released today, with large swaths of the population subscribing to classical anti-Semitic notions such as Jews having too much power in business, being more loyal to Israel than their own country, or "talking too much" about what happened during the Holocaust.
