Antisemitism Physical Acts Spike 18% In 2019, COVID Only Worsening It

Physical acts of antisemitism spiked by 18 percent in 2019 compared to 2018, according to Tel Aviv University Kantor Center’s annual report.

There were 456 total incidents reported in 2019, 169 were physical attacks, 129 targeted personal property, 77 targeted cemeteries, 53 synagogues, and 28 community centers and schools.

Moshe Kantor, the Center’s founder, shared that they’re also seeing a spike in antisemitism amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a significant rise in accusations that Jews, as individuals and as a collective, are behind the spread of the virus or are directly profiting from it,” Kantor said.

A man in Columbus, Ohio recently walked through the city touting a sign characterizing a Jewish person as a rat that read “THE REAL PLAGUE.”

“The man holding the atrocious antisemitic rat sign from this weekend’s Columbus, Ohio rally has been confirmed to be the same person from a Detroit 2019 Pride Rally, a member of the National Socialist Movement,” StopAntisemitism.org said in a tweet Monday.

The man pictured above was distributing the hate-filled fliers that blamed the Jewish people for the virus and its spread.

With the observance of Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day being this week, antisemites also didn’t miss the opportunity to promote #Covid48 on Twitter comparing the Jewish state to the virus.

The propaganda “clearly identifies a revival of the medieval ‘blood libels’ when Jews were accused of spreading disease, poisoning wells or controlling economies,” Kantor said, adding that the recent sensation is “consistent with the rise of antisemitism over the last few years.”

Putin has said in recent years that Finland is considered friendly so long as they do not join NATO. Finland’s President Sauli Niinistö confirmed Sunday he has applied for NATO membership.

MetroUK tweeted chilling video and reported the following:

Russia has started moving nuclear-capable missiles towards its border with Finland hours after Moscow vowed not to tolerate Helsinki’s plans to join Nato.

The Kremlin issued a chilling warning that plans for both Finland and Sweden to sign up to the Atlantic alliance were a ‘grave mistake with far reaching consequences’.

Russian deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said: ‘They should have no illusions that we will simply put up with it,’ and insisted ‘the general level of military tension will rise’.

The video was reportedly taken on a road leading to Vyborg, around 24 miles from the Finnish border, showing the deployment of mobile Iskander missiles.

“Seven launchers are thought to be en route according to commentary on a dash cam video broadcast by Russian media.”

A person on the video can be heard saying: ‘As soon as the president of Finland said they were joining Nato, a whole division of Iskanders, seven of them is moving towards Vyborg.

‘Looks like a new military unit is about to be formed in Vyborg or the region.’
