Diaspora Affairs and Public Diplomacy Minister Yuli Edelstein on Sunday submitted the 2010 anti-semitsm report to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and the cabinet.

"This years report shows a drop in anti-semitism, however compared with 2009, which showed a record number of anti-semitic incidents because of Operation Cast Lead, there has not been a significant change and anti-semitism is still on the rise.

He noted during the cabinet meeting that the biggest threat today is the hate which exists on the internet. According to Edelstein, social networking sites Twitter and Facebook allow anti-semites and anti-Israelis to hide behind false names and operate freely against Jews and Israel.
