‘Relentless’ Flood of Anti-Semitic Messages Blamed on Financial Crisis

Jerusalem (CNSNews.com) – The recent economic upheaval in the U.S. has sparked a “relentless” flood of anti-Semitic postings to financial and economic Internet discussion boards blaming the Jews for the country’s economic woes, the Anti-Defamation League said.

“We know from modern history that whenever there is a downturn in the global economy, there will be an upturn in the level of anti-Semitism and bigotry, and that is what we are seeing now,” said ADL National Director Abraham Foxman.
*
“The age-old canards about Jews and money are always just beneath the surface.** As we witnessed after 9/11, whenever there is trouble or uncertainty in the economy or world events, Jews become the scapegoats, and ugly anti-Semitic canards are given new life,” Foxman said in a statement.
*
Nevertheless, the “relentless” flood of messages on mainstream sites was a surprise, said Deborah Lauter, national civil rights director of ADL.
*
“We were not surprised by the extremists,” Lauter told CNSNews.com in a telephone interview on Friday. “What surprised us is the amount showing up on mainstream sites. The sheer amount has taken us aback.”
*
According to the ADL, hundreds of anti-Semitic posts about Lehman Brothers and other institutions affected by the mortgage crisis have been submitted to financial discussion board railing against Jews.
