The Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM) found a 1,753% increase in incidents of far-left antisemitism in the fourth quarter of 2023 worldwide, compared to the third quarter.

The incidents typically manifested themselves through anti-Israel demonization, delegitimization and double standards, according to CAM.

The organization attributed the sharp rise to the war against Hamas following the Palestinian terror group’s Oct. 7 massacre. The ensuing period “has seen widespread denial, whitewashing and legitimization of Hamas’s actions, as well as false and libelous claims about Israel’s military campaign of self-defense in Gaza,” said CAM.

CAM recorded 47 incidents of far-left antisemitism in the third quarter of last year, including 26 in July, 15 in August and six in September.

However, in October of 2023 there were 253 incidents, in November 314 and the following month 304, for a total of 871 recorded incidents.

“For a long time, too many have swept far-left antisemitism under the rug, but it is growing both in terms of numbers and threat,” said CAM CEO Sacha Roytman Dratwa.

“It is adopting the language, conspiracy theories and tactics of the far-right, demonstrating the horseshoe theory whereby the two extremes mimic each other in terms of hate, violence and discourse. It is necessary to reorient the discussion about antisemitism towards this fact to gain a better understanding of the threat and be able to combat it,” he added.
