Jewish organizations are now sounding the alarm about increased anti-Semitism on social media connected with the recent conflict between Israel and Palestine, USA Today reports.
The Anti-Defamation League announces that it has documented “disturbing antisemitism” on multiple social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and TikTok.
The group said its analysis of Twitter posts from May 7 to May 14 found more than 17,000 tweets used variations of the phrase, “Hitler was right.”
The ADL also claims to have seen increased activity outside the internet “which demonizes Israel and which has sometimes turned into anti-Semitism”.
The American Jewish Community, the Anti-Defamation League, the Jewish Federations of North America, Hadassah and the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America called on the president to use his platform to condemn antisemitism and take a number of actions to combat anti-Jewish hate in the U.S.
