According to the report, there were more than 75 anti-Israel events on American campuses during the first half of the fall semester, compared to 35 such events taking place during the same period in the fall of 2013.

“There has been a dramatic increase in anti-Israel activity reported on campus. But while the activity is intensifying, it is still not widespread. As of now the vast majority of Jewish students on campus are not affected and do not encounter these events,” ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman said.

The increase of campus anti-Zionism follows this past summer’s global upsurge of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic activity amid Israel’s Operation Protective Edge in Gaza.
