Anti-Semitism is still rising, not only in the United States but elsewhere around the world as well, according to the results of the latest global survey by the Anti-Defamation League.
The data that were gathered are “troubling, to say the least,” the organization said Thursday when it released the update to its ADL Global 100 Index at its annual Never Is Now Summit on anti-Semitism and Hate.
The global survey, which informs about emerging trends in anti-Semitism, has published data since 2014.
According to the most recent data, there has been a marked increase in anti-Semitic attitudes in Eastern Europe, South Africa and South America in the last four years.
• One in four Europeans polled subscribe to most of the anti-Semitic stereotypes tested.
• Stereotypes about Jewish control of business and the financial markets are among the most pernicious and enduring anti-Semitic beliefs.
• The falsehood of Jewish disloyalty/dual loyalty is widespread across Europe.
• 40% or more of respondents in 10 of the 18 countries polled thought “Jews still talk too much about what happened to them in the Holocaust.”
However, there was some good news; there was widespread support for social media reform to combat online harassment.
