Anti-Israel Protests in South America

Over the past ten days, there have been sev­eral anti-Israel demon­stra­tions through­out Latin Amer­ica protest­ing Israel’s mil­i­tary action in Gaza, known as Oper­a­tion Pro­tec­tive Edge, some with mes­sag­ing that crossed the line into anti-Semitism. At protests, signs com­par­ing Israel to the Nazis were seen, par­tic­i­pants spoke about Israel com­mit­ting geno­cide and eth­nic cleans­ing against Pales­tini­ans in Gaza, and calls were issued on gov­ern­ments to break rela­tions with Israel.

In Buenos Aires, Argentina, the Argen­tin­ian Com­mit­tee of Sol­i­dar­ity with Pales­tine orga­nized a protest out­side the Israeli Embassy where dozens of social, polit­i­cal, human rights and stu­dent groups par­tic­i­pated.…

Hate on Display: Anti-Semitism in Anti-Israel Demonstrations Across Europe

Jews attacked. Syn­a­gogues tar­geted. Israel demo­nized. These pat­terns of anti-Semitism were seen at many anti-Israel demon­stra­tions around Europe this past weekend.

On Fri­day, a pro­tes­tor in Berlin attacked an Israeli man wear­ing a kip­pah, who hap­pened to be pass­ing the demon­stra­tion route.
