Governmental organizations and NGOs around the world have adopted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of antisemitism. So should social media platforms.
Many forms of antisemitism are being spread using social platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and TikTok.
While these platforms do have guidelines against hate speech, somehow Jew-hatred squeezes through the cracks.
Indeed, when antisemitic content is reported, it doesn’t always fall within their broad definition of hate speech and is therefore permitted.
That’s why it’s so important that social media platforms clearly define antisemitism in all its forms.
HELP ISRAELIS BATTLE CORONA!
Donate to the Corona Emergency Relief Fund. Coronavirus has taken a huge toll on the people of Israel. The poor, elderly and ill are most vulnerable.
Israeli soldiers, security officers and medical care providers operate under great danger and risk to life.
Over 1 million Israelis are out of work. Many cannot make ends meet. We provide financial aid, food, medical supplies and more. Funds are distributed where needed most. The time to act is now!
