These statistics prove yet again what a myth “islamophobia” really is. The fact is that “islamophobia” is a device designed to crush any criticism of Islam. It is the knee-jerk response to jihad carnage — victimizing the victim. Muslim spokesmen and their leftist shills now decry “islamphobia” not just after, but even during Islamic terror attacks. It is a vicious, ugly lie.
This study says that “unlike previous years, anti-Semitic violence in 2018 was led by neo-Nazis and white supremacists.” There is a general tendency to ignore and downplay the grim reality of Islamic Jew-hatred, which is what is really responsible for the new rise of antisemitism in the West.

Marking Sunday’s International Holocaust Memorial Day, Israel’s Minister of Diaspora Affairs Naftali Bennett presented at the weekly Cabinet meeting the 2018 Global Anti-Semitism Report which details worldwide trends, and highlights key initiatives of the Ministry to combat and monitor anti-Semitism.
These are key findings of the Report:
1. In 2018, 13 Jews were murdered in 3 fatal anti-Semitic attacks. This marks the highest number of Jews murdered in anti-Semitic attacks since the attacks on the Argentinean Jewish community in the 1990s.
2. Record high levels of anti-Semitism on the streets and online. Around 70% of anti-Jewish attacks were anti-Israel in nature, while the height of incitement was recorded around the transfer of the American embassy to Jerusalem and the Hamas led “march of return” riots at the Gaza Strip border fence.
3. Unlike previous years, anti-Semitic violence in 2018 was led by neo-Nazis and white supremacists.
4. In France, after a noticeable reduction in anti-Semitic attacks in the previous year, due to a change in government policies and security deployment, there was a rise of 69% in anti-Semitic incidents.
5. In the United Kingdom, anti-Semitic incidents have reached an all-time high on record; anti-Semitism in the Labour Party has led a significant number of Jewish community leaders to express deep concern for their future in the country.
6. A survey conducted by the European Union shows that 85% of European Jews believe that anti-Semitism is a problem in their countries, 89% believe anti-Semitism has increased in their countries over the last five years, and 38% have considered or are considering emigrating as a result. The survey also showed that 80% of the incidents were not reported to the authorities.
7. Anti-Semitism as defined by the IHRA (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance) has become an international standard for judging anti-Semitic expressions and acts. The definition was adopted by 6 countries in 2018, bringing to 12 the number of countries that recognize it: Israel, Britain, Austria, Scotland, Romania, Germany, Bulgaria, Lithuania, the Republic of Macedonia, the Netherlands, Slovakia and Moldova….
