The World Zionist Organization has launched a new watchdog group monitoring anti-Semitism on the Web, it announced on Monday.

The Jewish organization set up the Media Center for Combating Anti-Semitism at its headquarters in Jerusalem where employees and volunteers keep an eye on offensive content published online. "The just-completed Media Center for Combating Anti-Semitism, was established to locate and monitor anti-Semitic and anti-Israel content on the internet, to work towards removing that content and to write talk-backs in relevant forums," a press release said.

The Zionist General Council, an umbrella group of Jewish outfits including the WZO, is set to meet in Jerusalem for a two-day gathering on June 20.
