Report: US cases of anti-Semitism increased last year

NEW YORK (AP) — The Anti-Defamation League found an increase in cases of anti-Semitic intimidation and vandalism last year, evidence that anti-Jewish bias intensified during the election.

The Jewish civil rights group found 1,266 cases of anti-Semitic harassment last year, compared to 941 in 2015 and 912 in 2014. The increase continued into the first three months of this year, with reports of 541 incidents compared to 291 in the same period the year before, according to the ADL data released Monday.

    they forgot to count the anti semitic incidents from DC while boomer was potus.

      That would be ascribed to racism against Obama and against the high proportion of JINO Jews who supported him and voted him in.

      Now it’s blamed on Trump and his anti-semitism. Especially that caused by his beloved daughter Ivanka who converted to Judaism. /sarc

        JINO’s aren’t Jewish
        and i don’t give much on accusations of

          I respectfully disagree with you.

          My explanation is as follows: These Jews (“JINOs” – Jews in name only) imagine that “true Judaism” is the equivalent of progressive liberalism and leftism. *cough cough cough*

          Hence, they dismiss the teachings of the Torah/Bible as secondary to their political convictions. Consequently, they usually and most often identify as Jews or at least “ethnic Jews” and are truly frightening because they have almost always supplemented a false god (leftism) for the true God.

          Yet, your point is well taken, as I believe like you that a JINO is not Jewish in the technical sense, although without defining this in more detail it is a problematic statement.

            you have not thought your point to the end, sorry there is no conclusion.

    Vast increase in Muslims, vast increase in anti Semitic crimes, I’m sure there’s no correlation at all.

  • Watchman

    The left will blame this on Trump emboldening extreme right wing extremists who strangely enough seem to have a very high correlation to islam when the perpetrators are identified.

  • DavidinNorthBurnaby

    But remember, the real problem is islamophobia. /sarc

      Well of course which is why M103 was so necessary.

    With every such act my resolve against evil gets stronger and my faith deepens.
