Tuesday, 13 December 2022 | Eighty-one percent of Israeli teens report having encountered anti-Semitism online, according to a new study.
The study, conducted by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, found that 71% of Israeli teens had encountered anti-Semitism on social networks, 66% were exposed to web pages displaying anti-Semitic content, 65% were exposed to songs or videos with anti-Semitic content and 30% have come across entire websites dedicated to anti-Semitic content, according to Ynet.
Only 14% of the respondents reported never encountering any anti-Semitism online.
The study also found that an “overwhelming majority” of respondents could distinguish between criticism of the State of Israel or government policies and other anti-Semitic statements, according to the report.
Eighty-four percent stated that imposing a boycott on Israel constitutes anti-Semitism, 88% said that denying the existence of the State of Israel constitutes anti-Semitism and 88% said that publishing conspiracy theories about Israel and the “Zios” ruling the world constitutes anti-Semitism.
Only 29% of respondents stated that criticizing Israeli policies equates to anti-Semitism.
The Maagar Mochot Institute conducted the poll using a combined telephone and internet survey of 708 Jewish Israeli respondents between the ages of 15 and 18.
