BBC, Unilever, Twitter, USC, CAIR, JVP Among the Top Ten

The Simon Wiesenthal Center is releasing its annual Global Anti-Semitism Top Ten list. 2021 was dominated by the COVID pandemic but also saw history’s oldest virus – anti-Semitism – infect the mainstream of culture, academia, and media on both sides of the Atlantic and across powerful social media.

Topping the list is the genocide-threatening, Holocaust-denying, terrorist-sponsoring, and human rights-abusing Iranian regime.

Among the other items on the Top Ten are Hamas-inspired violent attacks against Jews from Germany to the US; the BBC & the UK.; Unilever; Jewish Voices for Peace; University of Southern California; Social media giants Twitter, Telegram and TikTok; Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) & Sunrise Movement.
