In anticipation of an announced increase in disruptive anti-Israel demonstrations and related actions on campuses due to the recent conflict in Gaza, ADL has contacted university administrators to raise their awareness about concerns for the safety and well-being of Jewish students on campus and alerting them to potential actions coinciding with the upcoming Jewish High Holidays.
ADL's groundbreaking Global 100 Index of Anti-Semitism, which polled 53,100 adults in 102 countries on their attitudes toward Jews, is now available in Spanish to make the findings more widely available across the Spanish-speaking world. A new interactive Spanish web site presents all of the Global 100 survey findings, which were originally released in May.
"Shylock represents the medieval stereotype about Jews and remains an offensive characterization to this day. The Vice President should have been more careful. When someone as friendly to the Jewish community and open and tolerant an individual as is Vice President Joe Biden, uses the term 'Shylocked' to describe unscrupulous moneylenders dealing with service men and women, we see once again how deeply embedded this stereotype about Jews is in society."
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, in an article from Yahoo! News on comments made by Vice President Joe Biden.
