Successes in the Fight Against Anti-Semitism

(Jerusalem Post) Manfred Gerstenfeld - In 2018, there were a variety of important actions against anti-Semitism. One is the expanding acceptance of the definition of anti-Semitism of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA). Another is success in the fight against the BDS movement which aims to delegitimize the State of Israel. In November, Kentucky became the 26th American state to pass legislation to ban awarding state contracts to companies that endorse the BDS movement. The governors of all 50 states have signed a declaration condemning the BDS movement as antithetical to American values. In Germany, anti-Semitism commissioners have been appointed in a variety of federal states. A French manifesto against Muslim anti-Semitism was signed by 250 Jewish and non-Jewish personalities. The Council of the European Union (EU) approved the first declaration of its kind to fight anti-Semitism and strengthen the security of Jewish communities in Europe. British media have exposed the substantial anti-Semitism in the British Labour Party.
