Anti-Semiitism sign
A man holds an anti-Semitic sign in New York City in 2011. Anti-Semitism is growing around the world, including in the United States.

A report on anti-Semitic trends in 2012 prepared by the Ministry of Information and Diaspora indicates that, in the past year, there has been “an alarming rise in the number of terrorist attacks and attempted attacks against Jewish targets and an escalation in violent incidents against Jews throughout the world.”

The report finds that in the past year there has been a rise in the number of terrorist acts and attempted attacks against Jewish targets, primarily by groups which identify with radical Islam and the extreme right.

At the same time, there has also been an increase in the number of street attacks and incidents of verbal and physical violence against Jews, in Europe as well as in the U.S., Canada and Australia.

The report includes an extensive review of the different anti-Semitic incidents that have taken place around the world, as well as of expressions of hatred and racism on the Internet, and the trends in anti-Semitic discourse in the public and political spheres.
