In the beginning of the month till now of 2019, the Jewish civil rights group have counted 780 cases that include vandalism, arson and the distribution of white supremacist propaganda at Jewish institutions. The number of incidents actually nearly matched 2018 which the number of incidents wee 785 incidents. But this year is the worst for ant-Semitic acts in the U.S. since the ADL began counting three decades ago was 2017. The number has increased over 60 percent. Hopefully that someone stood up for the group which was the CEO. The group’s CEO Jonathan Greenblatt, attributed the spike to “a rising climate of incivility, the emboldening of hate groups and widening divisions in society.” The states with large Jewish populations like California, New York and New Jersey saw the greatest number of anti-Semitic acts. But ADL sad that 12 white supremacists have been arrested since the synagogue attack for their alleged roles in anti-Semitic terrorist plots, attacks, and threats. They said that they are on the run to catch them. They are trying there hardest so these type of people be behind bars.
