Pro-Israeli group the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on Sunday called on organizers, participants and supporters of the worldwide “Occupy Wall Street” movement to condemn anti-Semitic signs and comments that have appeared at some of the protest rallies across the country and around the world.
Last week, several anti-Semitic incidents have been reported during the “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrations in New York as Jews were blamed for the turmoil in America’s financial markets. In addition, anti-Israel signs were raised against “Israel’s occupation of Gaza”.
ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman issued a statement, saying: “We are seeing some individuals holding anti-Semitic signs at the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ rallies, and some videos posted on YouTube from the rallies have shown individuals expressing classic anti-Semitic beliefs such as ‘Jews control the banks’ and ‘Jews control Wall Street’
