-Is Anti-Semitism on the Rise in America?

The Anti-Defamation League released the results of a new nationwide survey that indicates that anti-Semitic attitudes may be on the rise in America.

According to the new poll, 15% of Americans hold deeply anti-Semitic views. A rise of 3% since 2009. Also, 19% answered “probably true” to the statement “Jews have too much control/influence on Wall Street” -an increase of 5% from 2009.

Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, responded to the new disappointing study:

“The fact that anti-Semitic attitudes have increased significantly over the past two years is troubling and raises questions about the impact of broader trends in America – financial insecurity, social uncertainty, the decline in civility and the growth of polarization – on attitudes toward Jews.”

Meanwhile, the study also found some good news in the African-American community. Anti-Semitic attitudes views in that segment of the population had not increased but remained steady. The bad news, 29% of African-Americans continue to express anti-Semitic views -consistently much higher than the general population.

Response: This is only a slight increase. However, anti-Jewish incidents have also been on the increase especially in New York City which has a large growing Muslim population. In addition, some of the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protestors have demonstrated anti-Semitic views on a number of different occasions. The main stream media has purposely downplayed those statements and incidences.

Reports of anti-Semitism on College campuses have also been on the rise all across America. Muslim student groups have made a point of fostering anti-Israeli attitudes by plastering their schools with Palestinian propaganda and sponsoring anti-Israel conferences.  At times, Jewish students on campuses have even been personally confronted and have faced a growing anti-Semitic/anti-Israeli environment.

Still incidents and attitudes of anti-Semitism in America are slight when compared to what is currently happening in Europe. Particularly among the growing Muslim communities all across Europe.

Unfortunately this is happening at the same time that American support for Israel seems to be at it’s lowest point due to the policies of the Obama administration which seem to favor Israel’s Muslim neighbors and Palestinian opponents.            *Top
