Coronavirus Spreads Anti-Semitism

Coronavirus panic has caused an increase in Jew-blaming, similar to what took place after other historic plagues.

The coronavirus pandemic has spread fear and panic throughout the world. Such a climate of suspicion and hostility has given rise to the age-old plague of anti-Semitism.

Israel’s Foreign Ministry warns of a sharp rise in anti-Semitic social media posts around the world as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The United States, France, Germany and the Arab world show a particularly high rise.

Ran Yaakoby, head of the Department for Combating Anti-Semitism, asked social media platforms to take responsibility for the content and act, reported Ynetnews. Itamar Eichner wrote, "Some have promised to investigate and bloc these posts, but some have politely declined, claiming they are swamped by coronavirus content and do not have the manpower to deal with this problem."
