With antisemitic rhetoric on the rise, it’s important to not to ignore hateful comments when you hear them. In many instances, people who make these types of comments or jokes are unaware that what they said was problematic. When this happens, it is recommended to immediately inform the person so they know that what they said was antisemitic. This allows everyone to see the issue with what was said, and shows victims of the statement that they have an ally.
Over 40% of Jewish Americans feel less secure than they did a year ago. That loss of security is due, in large part, to the rise of antisemitic attacks in the past year and how acceptable antisemitism and racism have become. To stop the normalization of antisemitism, Americans must speak out against antisemitic tropes and conspiracy theories.
Almost two-thirds of Jewish Americans (67%) have seen antisemitism online or on social media in the past year. Even more, one-in-eight Jewish Americans have reported being personally targeted by antisemitic remarks or posts online or through social media in the past year.
Yes, antisemitism is on the rise around the world. Antisemitic attitudes and hate crimes have been steadily increasing over the years. It is not just a threat to the Jewish community – accepted hate, in any form, is a threat to our society.
