According to the Anti-Defamation League, antisemitic incidents surged by 57 percent in 2017, the highest number since 1994. The rise in anti-Semitism correlates with the rise in hate groups over the past few years. Many feel President Trump's inability to condemn white supremacy is partially responsible for the surge, but others note Trump has enacted a number of pro-Israel policies, and liberals have also embraced some antisemitic figures. What do you think?

The Anti-Defamation League, a civil rights organization dedicated to fighting anti-Semitism, found 2017 saw the highest number of antisemitic incidents since 1994. 

ADL found that the number of anti-Semitic incidents in the U.S. rose 57 percent in 2017 – the largest single-year increase on record and the second highest number reported since ADL started tracking such data in 1979. The sharp rise was in part due to a significant increase in incidents in schools and on college campuses, which nearly doubled for the second year in a row.

Many argue the rise of anti-Semitism is directly linked to President Trump's inability to denounce white supremacists. After Charlottesville, the president famously declared "both sides" were to blame for the unrest, and there were "fine people" among the white supremacists. It's no wonder hate groups feel more empowered than ever.

But Trump eventually signed a resolution officially condemning the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"As Americans, we condemn the recent violence in Charlottesville and oppose hatred, bigotry, and racism in all forms... No matter the color of our skin or our ethnic heritage, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God.”

And others point out that liberals don't exactly have a clean slate when it comes to anti-Semitism either. Not to mention college campuses, which tend to be left-leaning, have seen some of the highest spikes in antisemitic incidents.
