Ignorance About Antisemitism Creates Dangerous Breeding Ground for Hatred of Jews
Parallel surveys of American Jews and the general public form the basis of the first-ever AJC report on the state of antisemitism in America. The state, simply put, is poor. To the traditional sources of antisemitism — the far right, hard left, and extremists in the name of Islam — we can now add a fourth: ignorance. The lack of awareness and refusal to enable Jews to define hatred against them create a dangerous breeding ground for anti-Jewish hostility.
