WorthyNews: Anti-Semitic assaults in US doubled in 2018, ADL reports

Recommended Posts

(Worthy News) - Violent attacks against the Jewish community in the United States doubled last year, while overall attacks that also include vandalism and harassment remained near record-high levels, the Anti-Defamation League reported Tuesday.

The Jewish civil rights group released its annual census of anti-Semitic incidents three days after a gunman opened fire at a Southern California synagogue, killing a woman and wounding a rabbi and two others.

The New York-based group counted 1,879 anti-Semitic incidents – either harassment, vandalism or physical assault – in 2018. That is a 5% decrease from the 1,986 incidents reported in 2017, but the third-highest total since ADL began tracking the data in the 1970s. The 2017 number marked a 57% increase over 2016 and was the highest tally ADL had counted in more than two decades. [ Source: Israel Hayom (Read More...) ]

It is unfortunate that the Democratic Party has taken a more anti-Semitic position on most issues.
