Newspapers across the Arab and Muslim world have published cartoons with anti-Semitic caricatures and themes relating to Operation Protective Edge, Israel's military action in Gaza targeting Hamas and other terrorists responsible for firing missiles and rockets into Israel. This includes portraying Israel as a devious animal intent on killing Palestinians, claiming Jews control the US and other international governments and using Nazi analogies.
The Anti-Defamation League monitors and documents anti-Semitic cartoons and articles which appear daily in the Arab and Muslim media. This publication is the latest compilation of select anti-Semitic and thematic caricatures and articles from the Arab and Muslim media.
The Boston Marathon bombing in April 2013 served as a tragic reminder of the persistent threat posed to the United States by homegrown extremists motivated by the ideologies and objectives commonly propagated by Islamic terrorist movements overseas. The bombing also underscored the significant influence and impact of online terrorist propaganda on a new generation of homegrown Islamic extremists.
