Anti-Semitism Monitor

BY IRA N. FORMAN   2019  |  in Jewish World

The Anti-Semitism Monitor reports anti-Semitic incidents around the world by country and date on a weekly basis. View incidents from 2018 here.

About the project

The list is compiled by using internet search engines as well as consulting a handful of news aggregation sites. The choice of linked articles is based on a number of criteria: The list largely leaves out links to insignificant incidents or false charges of anti-Semitism except in a few cases where false charges are so egregious that they illustrate the danger of misuse of charges of anti-Semitism; multiple links to the same incident are not included except where there are further developments to the story; a handful of overview stories which illustrate the nature of anti-Semitism in a specific country, region or worldwide are also included. Incidents listed are not necessarily anti-Semitic in nature, but all incidents raise questions of anti-Semitism. In compiling this list attempts have been made to use the most credible news sources and have largely avoided websites where news coverage has a strong ideological slant.

While this site is meant to serve as a resource, readers are cautioned not to use this site to assess where anti-Semitism is the most severe. For example: In 2018, there are more articles on anti-Semitism in the U.S. and UK than in other countries, even though many Jewish communities face larger threats.
