Major Increase in Complaints of Anti-Semitism and Discrimination Against Homosexuals


The number of registered complaints regarding anti-Semitic discrimination increased by 50% in 2009 as against 2008. The number of registered cases of incidents against homosexuals has increased by about 13%. Of all registered cases of physical abuse and public violence, more than one third concern homosexuals. Ronnie Naftaniel, Director of the Center for Information and Documentation About Israel (CIDI), warns that these figures are the tip of the iceberg. Many incidents are not registered. The same reaction was given by the Homosexual Interest Organization (COC). The original data were published by the National Criminality Picture of Discrimination of the Police. These figures contradict the data of the Anne Frank Foundation which based itself on obsolete figures.
