(Worthy News) - The United Nations released an interim report Monday detailing the alarming rise of anti-Semitism among people from a range of political and religious backgrounds.
Ahmed Shaheed, the Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief, submitted the report as an independent expert appointed by the UN Human Rights Council.
Shaheed attributed the rise of anti-Semitism to the growing use of anti-Semitic narratives by white supremacists, neo-Nazis and radical Muslim extremists. He also cited reports of "left-wing anti-Semitism" in various countries, "in which individuals claiming to hold anti-racist and anti-imperialist views employ anti-Semitic narratives or tropes in the course of expressing anger at policies or practices of the Government of Israel."
