The number of anti-Semitic incidents at colleges and universities nearly doubled last year. A total of 90 incidents were reported on 60 college campuses in 2015, compared with 47 incidents on 43 campuses in 2014. Campus anti-Semitic incidents accounted for 10 percent of the total incidents reported in the U.S. in 2015, according to new data from ADL's Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents.
ADL was deeply disturbed to learn that the past president of the UCLA Graduate Students Association decided to leave the university due to what he described as a “hostile and unsafe campus climate” created in part by outspoken anti-Israel activists.
Years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, anti-Semites continue to spread conspiracy theories blaming Jews and Israel for the events of that day. The fact that anti-Semites are promoting the idea that Israel and Jews are responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks 15 years after the event is not surprising.
