Active Democracy and Jewh124 - Anti-Semitic Spam Emails

  • December 8, 2015

Dozens of educational institutions, individuals and businesses have recently reported receiving emails with the subject line, “JewH124 Creating criminal minds in the name of Judaism.”  This anti-Semitic spam email promotes outrageous propaganda, saying for example that the Jewish religion sanctions violence and criminal activity against non-Jews, that Jews practice witchcraft, and Jews perceive non-Jews as subhuman and unclean.

The source for this email appears to be an anti-Semitic, conspiracy theory-oriented website, “Active-Democracy,” which is registered in India.  ADL has contacted Endurance International Group Inc., which owns HostGator of Houston, Texas where the website is hosted.  Endurance International’s policy allows any content that is not illegal.  However, both companies have policies prohibiting the use of their services for spamming.  ADL has not yet received any response to our communication. 

If you have received this email or know someone who has, please let us know by sending an email with the details to Civilrights@adl.org.
