As violent attacks against Jews worldwide drop to their lowest in more than 10 years, the United States, particularly college campuses, have been the hotbed of anti-Semitism, according to a new report.
In the United States, campuses, which the report describes as a hotbed of anti-Semitism, saw a 45 percent increase in anti-Jewish sentiments.
The AMCHA Initiative, which investigates anti-Semitism on college campuses, had a similar finding. Researchers who looked at dozens of public and private colleges and universities found 287 anti-Semitic incidents during the first half of 2016. Thats a 45 percent increase from incidents reported during the first half of 2015.

The silence of the article on the forces behind the rise of anti-semitism on American campuses is deafening.
SorozNazi $$ and islamonazis imported by Obama ( and Bush, alas). Many good Christians and Jews are afraid to even visit these American colleges anymore. It’s tragic
They mention only “incidents”, always careful to note any alleged right-wing connection, and are completely silent on the far more numerous, vicious, and consequential matter of organized BDS (Boycott, Divest, Sanction) activities that are one of the many cancers growing in academia.
Utter nonsense. The author is claiming the majority of anti Semitic behaviors are coming from Trump supporters.
Some of the anti-Semitism spewed by a lot of otherwise “conservative” Generation Z’ers was fairly surprising to me.
It’s obvious that they haven’t read The Bible, or that they completely eschew the Old Testament with some nonsense that the NT makes it irrelevant.
Just to let maybe at least a few of them know, Jesus was a Jew who constantly referred to “The Law” throughout his time on Earth.
These kids will not be advancing American values through their ignorance.
America will suffer as a result.
There are too many “segments” of American society that are really and truly “Hyphenated Americans”.
A group that identifies itself as something ‘first’ and American ‘second’ is totally missing the point about being American.
We should all be Americans FIRST.
Third world here we come.
Yes, they miss Islam. But I have seen some of these people on the highway with signs protesting Israel. These are white secular Jew haters, cloaking their hatred under the guise of “Israel”.
Yes, there still is SOME old fashioned good ole boy hatred of Jews among the right, but it is minute. I would argue the uneven criticism from the left against Israel shows me the Jewish problem is really one of the left.
Someone needs to compare the rise of anti-Semitism on individual campuses with the amount of money those individual institutions have received from Islamist donors. Saudi Arabia “owns” a big chunk of Georgetown and many other U.S. universites, by design.
