Catastrophic antisemitic backlash from Gaza conflict
“We are faced with antisemitism from the right, from the left and from Islamists – all coming together in North America,” said William Darof, CEO of the US Presidents’ Conference of Jewish Organizations in an interview with Kan 11 broadcaster.

Darof noted that the hundreds of attacks are mostly directed against Jewish institutions, synagogues and schools – not Israeli government bodies, which attests to their target being Jews not just Israel.
