Report: 2021 Was ‘Most Antisemitic Year’ in a Decade


Jewish Press: Ahead of International Holocaust Remembrance Day and the Fight against Antisemitism, on January 27 the World Zionist Organization and the Jewish Agency will issue their annual Antisemitism Report for 2021, and the statistics are not encouraging.

The average number of antisemitic incidents reported in 2021 was more than ten incidents per day. However, the actual number of incidents is significantly higher, since many incidents are not reported by the victims out of fear, and due to the lack of surveillance and prosecution of local authorities and law enforcement agencies.

The main incidents were vandalism and destruction of property, graffiti, desecration of monuments, and propaganda. Incidents of physical and verbal violence accounted for less than a third of all antisemitic incidents in 2021. And so, while statistics show 2021 was the most antisemitic year in a decade, at the same time, not a single Jew around the world was been murdered over antisemitism.

The report also shows a correlation between calendric events around the world and the rise in the number of antisemitic incidents. In 2021 we saw a sharp increase in the number of antisemitic incidents in May, a month that featured Jerusalem Day, Shavuot, Al-Quds Day, Eid al-Fitr, Nakba Day, the Tiktok terror against Haredi Jews on the light train in Jerusalem, riots in the Shimon HaTzadik (Sheikh Jarrah) neighborhood, lethal riots in the mixed cities in Israel, and, of course, Operation Guardian of the Walls against Gaza terrorists.

Opinion: Pastor Andy Woods: Jerusalem is God’s timeclock. Israel is the hour hand, Jerusalem is the minute hand and the Temple Mount is the second hand.

The hour hand began to move on May 14, 1948 when Israel became a nation after almost 2000 years. The minute hand began to move with the victory of the 1967 war when east and west Jerusalem were reunited, and when the second hand begins to move, a major event will rivet the world’s attention on the Temple Mount.

In the introduction to our paper “Two Trains, Israel and the Church in Prophecy”, we found that the roots of anti-Semitism in the early church led to greater acceptance by secular world leaders and the nations.

Global resurgence in anti-Semitism as we near the Tribulation – God is calling His chosen ones home, Ezekiel 39:28: “… then they shall know that I am the Lord their God, who sent them into captivity among the nations, but also brought them back to their land, and left none of them captive any longer.”
