The United Nations released an unprecedented report on anti-Semitism on Monday, 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, Combating Antisemitism to Eliminate Discrimination and Intolerance Based on Religion or Belief, was released on Monday by U.N. Human Rights Councils 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:
They are: 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.

“”growing use of anti-Semitic tropes by white supremacists including neo-Nazis and members of radical Islamist groups””
Hmmm - I hope they also added members of the U.S. House of Representatives.
I wonder how many state houses are also infected with this vermin. We never heard about them UNTIL they run for Congress and then they end up in our lap. Aren’t we lucky?
UnitedNazis report on anti-Semitism...
probably only to document their successes in fostering it
What is it a stock??
It’s a dangerous change upwards in attacks against Jews in whatever form.
they mean WITHIN the United Nations itself, right?
I’m betting the name United Nations doesn’t appear anywhere evidence does.
The UN is the biggest culprit—they hate Israel.
Take a look at the name of the UNHRC’s special rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief.
Nothing on black extremists anti-Semitism, Moslem extremism, esp. from Iran, the rise of the anti-Semitic Left in both American and British politics, and the general hatred of so-called Palestinians esp. those in Hamas for the mere existence of a Jewish state.
#6. Two things.
1. Please!!! I just ate dinner.
2. These 4 leaders of the “Squats” are made of the same things hot dogs are made of (according to the raccoons in “The Great Outdoors” movie) - “lips and assholes”.
Forget the Grey Poupon!
As though the UN matters
