New York, NY, February 27, 2018 … Following is a statement from Anti-Defamation League (ADL) CEO Jonathan Greenblatt in response to news that YouTube would not take down anti-Semitic videos from the neo-Nazi group Atomwaffen Division that call for gassing Jews and a “race war”:

Just today we released a report showing a 60% increase in anti-Semitic incidents over the past year, and we know this type of material only contributes to that. These videos are not only disgusting racist content that has no place in our society, but they incite hatred against one religious group – in this case, Jews – therefore violating YouTube’s own Community Guidelines. YouTube should take them down immediately.
