During the Year 2020, humanity has had to cope with the Corona pandemic that spread throughout the globe and brought about a steep rise in anti-Semitic discourse, hate, fraudulent theories, and conspiracy theories in the online space. The movement, Fighting Online Antisemitism (FOA) is an Israeli non-profit organization. The FOA was founded February 2020 and is among the leading organizations in the world, training hundreds of volunteers in Israel and worldwide for removal of antisemitic content and eradication of any manifestations of hatred. This is done in 10 languages and on 7 social networks, day and night. This extensive activity has led to the removal of many posts from the leading social networks. The FOA is the only Israeli representative in the global organization International Network Against Cyber Hate (INACH) which unites Tens of civil social organizations worldwide fighting hate discourse in the online space. The FOA cooperates with tens of higher and academic educational institutes as well as organizations throughout Israel and worldwide. The FOA is approved by the Israeli Ministry of Education and is part of social programs for youths. In addition, there is technical communication with the 5 leading social networks: Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, YouTube and Facebook. These channels enable FOA to have direct communication and monitoring accounts dedicated for similar organizations. During the 1st half of 2021, the “inciting hand” was on the keyboard, and the eyes were on the screens: millions of hashtags and antisemitic posts were spread global-wide, gaining more and more exposure every year. These days, we continue even more to fight and eradicate the online antisemtic phenomena by reporting offending content as well as promoting educational workshops for young people, giving online lectures for the general public, and publishing data and reports openly and transparently.
