In the aftermath of the shocking violence against Jews in Western Europe the past year, the level of anti-Semitic attitudes among the general population in France showed a dramatic decline, while Germany and Belgium registered significant reductions, according to ADL's new polling. The survey of adults in 19 countries found minimal change in the levels of anti-Semitic attitudes in most of the countries compared to a year ago, when the League polled 102 countries in a groundbreaking worldwide survey of anti-Semitism.
ADL condemned the United Nations Human Rights Council report on Operation Protective Edge calling it “illegitimate in its conception and “inherently biased against Israel.” National Director Abraham Foxman said the report was the latest example “in a long string of calumnies against Israel by the Council."
"Most important, fighting extremism, no matter the source, should never be a partisan issue. We must take extremist threats seriously from wherever they emerge, whether domestic Islamic extremists radicalized by ISIS or rightwing extremists radicalized by white supremacist and antigovernment websites. There should be no competition, because if we fail to address any threat, we all lose."
Mark Pitcavage, Director of ADL’s Center on Extremism, from The New York Times “Room for Debate” blog on addressing domestic extremism and the importance of strong hate crime laws.
