Doctor Andre Oboler directed the working group entitled " Anti-Semitism Online: Cyberspace and the Media" at the Conference of the Global Forum for Combating Anti-Semitism. Dr. Oboler, Director of the Community Internet Engagement Project, explained to Arutz Sheva TV that a decade ago online anti-Semitism meant websites which were known by all as anti-Semitic. Today, with the proliferation of internet, online anti-Semitism refers to slurs on Jews insidiously invading social networks, talkbacks and other user-generated content.
