WASHINGTON, DC / ACCESSWIRE / May 2, 2019 / May 2, 2019 marks Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. As antisemitism from both jihadi and white supremacist sources spikes across the West, MEMRI continues to research it. For over two decades, MEMRI has been monitoring and documenting antisemitism and Holocaust denial from the Arab and Muslim world, maintaining the largest archives in the world of this content as part of the MEMRI Tom Lantos Archives on Antisemitism and Holocaust Denial. This past year, we have published dozens of reports and videos of Holocaust denial, which are included below.
With the rising tide of antisemitism in the West – not only in sermons by extremist imams across the U.S. but also on online platforms by neo-Nazis, white supremacists, fascists, and racists – MEMRI, together with the Lantos Foundation for Human Rights and Justice, has launched a new project for monitoring online incitement against Jews, people of color, Muslims, and the LGBTQ+ community. The project aims to examine where white-supremacist incitement coincides and intersects with jihadi incitement, hatred, and extremism on social media. MEMRI research also includes a focus on the brave reformists in the Middle East who speak out against antisemitism and Holocaust denial.
The MEMRI-Lantos project documents antisemitic themes in Arabic, Farsi, Urdu-Pashtu, and Turkish newspaper reports, editorials, and other media sources, distributing all its research – reports, analysis, and videos – through a blog and all its videos through the Lantos MEMRI TV page. The project informs governments, policy-makers, and law enforcement and intelligence agencies, as well as media, academia, and the general public, so that they may gain a greater understanding of these issues. Its projects researching antisemitism are supporting legislation on Capitol Hill and throughout the West. The Lantos Project YouTube page includes videos from annual events held in the Speaker’s Dining Room of the U.S. Capitol marking the establishment of the Lantos Antisemitism and Holocaust Denial Archives.
