Anti-Semitic Incidents on the Rise in Florida
After several years of decline, the Anti-Defamation League reports anti-Semitism is back on the rise in Florida. The group's annual Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents report shows that more than 10 percent of anti-Semitic incidents in the nation in 2010 occurred in Florida and that the number of incidents rose in Florida by 28 percent since 2009.
The incidents were broken down into three categories:
- 86 incidents of anti-Semitic harassment, up from 63 in 2009
- 28 cases of anti-Semitic vandalism, up from 24 in 2009
- 2 physical assaults on Jewish individuals in Florida, down from 3 in 2009
