Australia, US grapple with reports of rising antisemitism

There has been an increase in reports of antisemitism in Australia since Israel’s war against Hamas began in October. In the United States, nearly two-thirds of American Jews feel less secure than they did a year ago, according to a new national survey.

The Australian government said on Feb. 13 it will outlaw doxxing – the malicious release online of personal or identifying information without the subject’s permission – after pro-Palestinian activists published personal details of hundreds of Jewish people in Australia.

The government was responding to Nine Entertainment news reports last week that pro-Palestinian activists had published the names, images, professions, and social media accounts of Jewish people working in academia and the creative industries.
