WZO: Anti-Semitism Still Growing


Anti-Semitism, unfortunately, is alive and well, and even growing, according to Yaakov Hagoel, who deals with anti-Semitic incidents for the World Zionist Organization. Speaking to Arutz Sheva, Hagoel said that he receives reports each day of anti-Semitic incidents occurring throughout the world.

This weekend, the world commemorated International Holocaust Memorial Day, honoring the memory of six million Jews and many millions of others who were killed by the Nazis. The annual event takes place on January 27, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau by the Soviet army.
