Anti-Semitism Surging Since Hamas Attack

Anti-Semitism has skyrocketed worldwide since Hamas’s October 7 invasion of Israel, a study from the Anti-Defamation League (adl) and Tel Aviv University published Sunday revealed.

Numbers: Anti-Semitic acts were already a growing problem, but Hamas’s massacre worsened the trend.

In 2022, 3,679 anti-Semitic incidents were recorded in the United States; 7,523 were recorded last year. This was the highest level ever recorded by the adl in the U.S.

From January to September 2023:

  • France recorded 434 anti-Semitic incidents.
  • Germany recorded 1,365 anti-Semitic incidents.

After the attack, from October to December:

  • France recorded 1,200 anti-Semitic incidents.
  • Germany recorded 2,249 anti-Semitic incidents.

The report said, “If current trends persist and continue to deteriorate, the curtain will descend on the ability of Jewish identities to be manifested with security and freedom in the West.”

Warning: Anti-Semitism is often a harbinger of international calamity, and Bible prophecy says today’s rise is no different. But because of advancements in modern weaponry, modern anti-Semitism will play a role in a conflict much worse than any humanity has ever experienced.
