In the days just prior to President Trump making his annual address to the UN, the international organization has released a troubling report indicating that anti-Semitism is on the rise.

As Jews around the world prepare for the “High Holidays” that begin with Rosh Hashanah on Sunday, September 29, the United Nations released an “unprecedented” report on anti-Semitism, which pointed out that the frequency appears to be increasing. It also linked anti-Semitism to denunciations of Israel as well as the Palestinian-led Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS) movement, which calls for a boycott of all Israeli products.

The report stressed that the “prevalence of anti-Semitic attitudes and the risk of violence against Jewish individuals and sites ” is significant.

The report entitled, “Combating Antisemitism to Eliminate Discrimination and Intolerance Based on Religion or Belief,” was released on Monday, September 23, by UN Human Rights Council’s special rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief, Ahmed Shaheed.

The special rapporteur recognized that the sources of anti-Semitism are varied and pointed out what he thinks are the three main strains, which consist of: “growing use of anti-Semitic tropes by white supremacists including neo-Nazis and members of radical Islamist groups,” an increase in “anti-Semitic narratives or tropes in the course of expressing anger at policies or practices of the government of Israel,” and the “objectives, activities and effects of the Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS) movement.”

The report said that “anti-Semitic hate speech is particularly prevalent online.”

Violent Attacks On Jews On the Upswing

The report also recounted the alarming number of violent anti-Sematic attacks in recent years, that have left Jewish communities around the world “on edge.” Specifically, the report mentioned the 2018 attack at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, where a gunman opened fire and killed 11 congregants “in the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history.”

As detailed by Fox News, the report noted that the gunman’s “comments during the attack and social media activity on the days preceding it revealed a belief in a host of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories rooted in a far-right, white supremacist ideology.”

The report went on to point out that about six months later, “a gunman similarly motivated by white supremacist ideology killed one congregant and wounded three others at a synagogue in the Poway California community.”

In that case, police said the 19-year-old man armed with an assault-type rifle opened fire inside the Southern California synagogue in April as worshipers prepared to celebrate the last day of Passover.

The special rapporteur also said he “received numerous accounts concerning vandalism and desecration of Jewish synagogues and cemeteries, as well as other recognizably Jewish sites.”

The report concluded by urging member nations to adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) working definition of anti-Semitism as a global guide for identifying, monitoring, and responding to incidents.

The president of the World Jewish Congress (WJC) — an international federation of Jewish communities and organizations, said he hopes the report “serves as an eye-opener to the United Nations and its member states. The World Jewish Congress is extremely pleased with the results of the report on anti-Semitism prepared by U.N. Special Rapporteur Shaheed,” WJC President Ronald Lauder said.

The findings will officially be presented to the U.N. General Assembly next month, according to the WJC.

  1. Today’s anti-Semitism: Incredible on its surface. We should be seeing anti-Islamic sentiment growing, even more than it justifiably has already grown since 911. What have the Semites done to cause this? Huh? Tried to survive? (I know some think Arabs are also Semites, and they might be, but you know what I mean…)

  2. Until the Muslims got really bold and obtained many weapons, the world was a LOT safe and better. The Muslims will try anything to control the whole populated world. They have to be stopped.

  3. I’ve said it once I’ll say it again. The only thing wrong with Israel is they haven’t killed enough Palestinians yet. Other than that we as a nation should be supporting Israel with our money and weapons.

  4. I fully agree. Radical Islamists pose a serious threat to our country. Now we have members in our congress that spew hate for our country and our president. I haven’t seen much coming from them other than wanting to change everything our country was founded upon. And the Left in this country let them get away with it. Jews in this country are a peaceful lot and have done much good being here. Anti-semitism should not be a part of our culture. All people coming into this country must assimilate to our culture, or we won’t have a country.
    I always hear reference to far right individuals, but seldom if ever, hear the term far left. Who are the real haters in our country? I think the liberal democrats should look in the mirror if they want to find the hatred.

  5. Jews are the chosen people of God , arabs have been a thorn we all need to respect each other if e can

  6. I guess the monitor has no love for the bible try to get along with each other remember that Gods chosen people is Israel and those who help them will be helped too

  7. Jews are not the ones that caused 9/11. Those are the ones we should be against. But then those in the Senate and against Israel are Muslim no big surprise

  8. Of course A-S is on the rise because Jews do nothing to stop these haters by confronting them and doing to them what they would do to Jews.

    God warned Jews thousands of years ago in the Torah:, If someone comes to kill you, kill them first.”

    It would have worked wonders in Germany in the 1920’s without ever having a HOLOCAUST and today in Brooklyn and the Jews do NOTHING.

    Kill a Black in church and everything changes. Kill a Jew in synagogue and NOTHING HAPPENS.

    WHEN JEWS FIGHT BACK LIKE THE ISRAELIS THIS HORROR WILL CEASE!!!!
