Israel’s war against
Hamas, rising anti-Semitism in Europe, the shootings at the Kansas
Jewish community center by a career white supremacist, a noticeable rise
in anti-Israel activity on campus and the proliferation of anti-Jewish
hate speech on the Internet top the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL)
annual list of issues affecting Jews in 2014.
Also among the top 10
issues affecting Jews: Scandals involving anti-Semitism and racism that
rocked professional sports; the Iranian nuclear negotiations; the
Supreme Court decisions allowing legislative prayer and free exercise
rights for corporations; immigration reform; and racial bias in the
criminal justice system.
