Coordination Forum for Countering Antisemitism
The Coordination Forum for Countering Antisemitism (CFCA) is a national forum that monitors antisemitic activities throughout the world. It coordinates the struggle against this phenomenon with various government bodies and Jewish organizations around the world.
The CFCA receives information on antisemitic activity from a variety of sources, checks this information, publishes it in regular reports, convenes periodically to hear updated reports and establishes policy on how to counter different forms of antisemitism.
The struggle against antisemitism must unfortunately persist and requires CFCA's constant attention. This entails learning and understanding the extent of the phenomenon and recruiting all the relevant resources to fight it wherever and whenever it appears.
As part of the above effort the forum receives information on antisemitic activity from a variety of sources, checks this information and publishes it on our website that has set up to serve as a tool in struggle.
The CFCA website has the largest and most comprehensive data base of antisemitic incident reported throughout the world and is updated daily with reports, pictures, video clips and statistics. The incidents in our archive can be accessed by date, location and/or category. The site also offers information on the ongoing struggle against antisemitic and related articles.
Facebook hate factory
On 15 April 2018, the CFCA published an article entitled "Exposed: Jeremy Corbyn’s hate factory" based on an investigation conducted into 20 of the biggest pro-Corbyn Facebook groups by The Sunday Times which "uncovered more than 2,000 racist, antisemitic, misogynistic, violent and abusive messages".
In the background of the outbreak of the coronavirus, the Office for Strategic Issues published how anti-Semitic people are exploiting the virus to spread lies against Israel and Judaism, among others, in their allegations of the spread of the coronavirus around the world.
For example, the Iranian news agency Press TV released an article in early March pointing a finger of blame for the outbreak of the virus in Iran at Israel and the US. An Iranian who believes the coronavirus is a tool of “biological warfare” against Iran and China. In another case, a Turkish senior official, who is considered close to President Erdogan, said “the virus serves the purposes of Zionism” and a Turkish blogger has accused the Jews or Zionists of creating the virus to rule the world.
