The total number of anti-Semitic incidents in the United States increased by 21 percent in 2014 in a year marked by a violent anti-Semitic shooting attack targeting Jewish community buildings in Kansas and anti-Jewish expressions linked to the war in Gaza. The Anti-Defamation League's Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents counted a total of 912 anti-Semitic incidents across the U.S. during the 2014 calendar year.
ADL welcomed the approval by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee of a bipartisan compromise bill to allow a role for Congress in assessing and implementing any nuclear agreement reached with Iran.
“When I think of the March of the Living, how we walked those miles from the towns where Jewish life once thrived to the railroad tracks that had their one-way terminus inside of Auschwitz-Birkenau, I know that we cannot afford to let down our guard, to be less than eternally vigilant. We must use every weapon at our disposal and every ally at our side to stand up and fight every manifestation, every new permutation of the world’s oldest hatred."
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, from an article in The Jerusalem Post on global anti-Semitism and Holocaust remembrance.
Mr. Foxman discusses the regime’s influence throughout the region and what the United States can do to reassure its allies. He argues that a “more sustained U.S. approach” is needed and that President Obama’s remarks about backing Israel in the face of an Iranian threat “should be reflected in clear agreements.”
