On the first anniversary of the Iranian nuclear agreement, ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt offers a fresh assessment of the deal and the steps that Iran has taken, and still needs to take to ensure compliance. He says that while we must acknowledge the important reduction of nuclear risk in the short term, it would be foolish to not consider the wider effects of the agreement in the region. He reiterates that there are many signs that speak to a reality that the regime remains “a belligerent actor whose norms and rhetoric do not line up with those of other nations.”
ADL experts on cyberhate and anti-Semitism participated in the First Global Forum Against Anti-Semitism in Latin America. The forum, which took place in Buenos Aires, aimed to address anti-Semitism in Latin America with discussions focusing on education, legislation and interfaith dialogue.
"The Internet actually breaks down some of these normal sort of codes of conduct we have. In some ways we see quite bit of a spike in hate speech because of the Internet. The most impactful type of activity online by extremists is really on social media, because social media is really a whole different feeling. It's an ability for you to engage with somebody, create a community, feel like you have like-minded people are are interested in you."
Oren Segal, Director of ADL’s Center on Extremism, in an interview with CBS Evening News
Mr. Greenblatt discusses free speech on campus following his remarks to a panel at the Aspen Ideas Festival. He says that while there’s nothing wrong with debating Israel’s policies on campus, there’s “something profoundly wrong when some with strong views exploits academic freedom to shut down the free exchange of ideas and marginalize a segment of campus, in this case Jewish students.”
