(May 26, 2016):

The following non-legally binding working definition of anti-Semitism is:

"Anti-Semitism is a certain view of Jews that can be expressed as hatred of Jews. Rhetorical and physical expressions of anti-Semitism are directed at Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and / or their property, at Jewish community institutions and religious facilities. "

To guide IHRA in the work ', the following examples can serve as illustrations:

Anti-Semitic expressions could be directed at the state of Israel, considered a Jewish collective. However, criticism of Israel, like criticism of other countries, cannot be considered anti-Semitic. Anti-Semitism often accuses Jews of collaborating to harm humanity, and it is often used to blame Jews for "why everything goes wrong." It is expressed in speech, writing, visual forms and actions and uses derogatory stereotypes and negative character traits.

Examples of anti-Semitism in the public sphere today, in the media, in schools, in the workplace and in the religious context, may, given the general context, include, but are not limited to:

  1. To encourage, contribute to or justify the killing or harm of Jews with reference to a radical ideology or an extremist one. . .
