An audit released by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on Tuesdsay says that 1,211 anti-Semitic incidents occurred in the US in 2009.

This includes 29 physical assaults on Jewish individuals, 760 incidents of anti-Semitic harassment and threats, and 422 cases of anti-Semitic vandalism during the 2009 calendar year.“It is a sobering reality that as Jews have become more accepted in society, there remains a consistent hatred of Jews among too many," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. "The fact that Jews continue to be singled out for acts of hate on an average of three times per day in this country is a disturbing reality that we have to confront.”
