Poll on anti-Semitism sparks discussion
Results show rise in last two years
More than 500 people gathered at Faneuil Hall last night to hear a panel of community and civic leaders discuss a disturbing poll by the Anti-Defamation League showing a rise in anti-Semitism in this country, over the past two years. Discussion centered on an ADL poll released last week showing a 3 percent rise in anti-Semitism in the US since 2009. The poll numbers indicated that 15 percent of Americans, 35 million people, hold deeply anti-Semitic views.
