JNS.orgA new study commissioned by Venezuela’s Jewish community umbrella organization revealed that there were more than 4,000 anti-Semitic expressions in the South American country in 2013.

Confederacion de Asociaciones Israelitas de Venezuela (CAIV) President David Bittan, who is also a vice-president of the World Jewish Congress, wrote in the foreword to the study that last year “we witnessed and recorded 4,033 anti-Semitic expressions through different media, in social networks, with an important increase in the months of March, April and May, and a decrease in October, November and December.”

The annual CAIV study on anti-Semitism will no longer be necessary if Venezuelan authorities “show the initiative and the will to exert a policy to eradicate Judeophobia,” added Bittan.
