Nowadays, the whole world is actively spreading the idea of fighting against bullying, manifestations of hatred and anti-Semitism. But, unfortunately, we do not have a distinctive positive result at the moment. This problem is especially relevant in the countries of the European Union, where the number of violent attacks only increases every year.
Anti-Semitism - is enmity at the national level, which is expressed in hostility and hatred of the Jews. The most current example, which is worth considering, is that there were about 750 attacks against people of Jewish nationality in Britain in just half a year.
Vladimir Sloutsker regularly draws public attention to the problem of anti-Semitism and calls for the development of methods to fight this social enmity. In addition, the businessmen and public figure emphasizes that it is necessary to fight not only with enmity against Jews but also with any manifestations of hatred against other minorities. It is vital not only to reduce the number of such situations in the country but also to try to eradicate social inequality by all means. That is what other countries do.
For a long time, there has been a struggle to adopt the definition of “anti-Semitism” and create a clear understanding of it. Only after that, you can set the rules and obligations, as well as penalties. If we take, for example, Britain, then a clear understanding of the problem helped to achieve success. The UK considers anti-Semitism not only enmity towards Jews but also delegitimizing Israel.
It is necessary to clearly understand the platforms that enable unpunished development of aggression in order to cope with the problem. Today it is a social media. It is not only a platform for news, communication and the flow of information but also a place where hatred is actively spreading. And even if it is impossible to control all the chats, you should think about the opposite side of it. It is necessary to use new generation platforms to combat anti-Semitism. We need to show young people what hate leads to, what consequences could be. Remind them, for example, about the Holocaust and other terrible periods of time against the Jewish people.
It is also very important to show the world how Jews treat other cultures, how they help the developing of the European Union countries and the whole world. The more people will understand the equality and importance of other people, the less hatred and actions of a violent nature will be out there. That is precisely what Mr. Sloutsker has on top of his mind. He calls to unite in order to cope with a social problem that can affect not only Jews but also all other minorities and religious groups.
The propaganda of tolerance and acceptance, which is implemented by the EU government, has its function, but most people will not adhere to the norms until they realize that hate against national minorities will lead to severe punishment.
