25 January 2018
ARUTZ SHEVA 7 — Ahead of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Israel’s Ministry of Diaspora Affairs revealed a new and unique platform for realtime information and analysis of online anti-Semitism.
Minister of Diaspora Affairs Naftali Bennett on Thursday revealed the tool, developed by the Ministry over the past year: the Anti-Semitism Cyber Monitoring System (ACMS), capable of providing real time data and analysis of online anti-Semitism.
Minister Bennett said: “Sunlight is the best disinfectant. From today every anti-Semite online should know he is exposed, the hatred he spreads is being watched and he will be held responsible. It’s time to set a mirror in front of our enemies and expose the ugly face of the modern anti-Semite, he who Tweets Swastikas instead of branding them in the street. From now we will know who the leading anti-Semites are and they will be dealt with.”
Bennett added: “Anti-Semitism hasn’t vanished, it has shifted shape and moved from the street to the web. Especially during the week we commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we must turn the spotlight to the places from which anti-Semitism stems and spreads, as part of the mutual responsibility Jews have for one another.” […]
