ADL lists top 10 events affecting Jews in 2012

December 16, 2012 01:16

A spike in anti-Semitic incidents in Europe, sanctions imposed on Iran to deter its nuclear program plans and the UN’s vote upgrading “Palestine” to non-member state status topped the Anti-Defamation League’s list of top 10 stories that rocked the Jewish world in 2012.

The report, which focused on events outside of the US, highlighted the reasons why 2012 was a significant, if not worrisome, year for Jews worldwide.

“While it isn’t always true, this year was a year with particular emphasis on events overseas,” explained Abraham H. Foxman, ADL national director.
