Antisemitism by Dennis and Josh

Antisemitism is the discriminance or predjuice against Jews. For many years people have not treated members of the jewish community as equals. In many cases there have been verbal and physical attacks on the jewish community.


The Swastika is the international symbol of Nazism, or a sign worn by neo nazis who are known to kill jews.

A main reason that the UDHR was written was because of the Holocaust, a genocide of over 6 million jews. Articles 1-5, 19, 20, 26, and 27 of the UDHR are in direct reference to the holocaust.

For their whole existence, people have tried to eliminate the jewish race. From the ancient stories of Purim and Hannukah, all the way up to the Holocaust

A 2009 ADL survey of 3,500 adults in seven European countries found 31% of those surveyed "blame Jews in the financial industry for the current global economic crisis" and 40% "believe that Jews have too much power in the business world."

These are three present day anti - semites in America, also known as neo-nazis or "Skinheads"

WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?To help prevent anit semitism in the future I have joined a Jewish youth group called BBYO. A lot of the fundraisers and events this organiziation does are focused towards rasing awareness towards anti semitism and how it affects people.

The biggest example of anti semitism today is that in the Middle East and the surrounding countries of Israel. Most of them are Muslim, and the Islam community believes that jews are the enemy of Allah and killing them will get Muslims into heaven.In a 2011 poll, (by Israel Project) 73% of Palestinians said they “believe” the Islamic Hadith that preaches it is Islamic destiny to kill Jews wherever they are.

The Six Day War was a short war in the Middle East in 1967 because Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Iraq thought that the UN took away land that was rightfully theirs to give to the Jews. Although, with the help of their military and the UN Israel defended themselves.

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) combats anti semitism and other human rights that are being broken. They are little known outside of other NGO's, but are a major organization in reducing East West tensions, as well as monitoring the human rights of minorities.The ADL (Anti-Defamation League) is an organization that was founded to stop anti semitism and fight to protect equality of everyone in the USA and around the world.

Unfortunately, there is not one thing we can do to stop anti semitism in the future. But, collectively as one unit we can raise awareness for the cause and hope people can come together and view the Jewish community as one group of people and stand strong against neo nazi and anti semetic groups.

Most people think that nazism died out after the Holocaust and WWII, however that is not true. Anti semites today are known as neo-nazis and their goal is to revive the nazi culture and ideas and bring it back to power. There are only about 400 neo nazis in America, but they are a big problem in Germany, which boasts over 6,500 skinheads.26.
