38 times more Twitter users target Israel than Iran

According to studies made available to the Knesset, Twitter is strongly biased against Israel. Twitter users accuse the Jewish state of human rights violations more frequently than any other nation, according to a study titled “Antizionism, Antisemitism, and The Polarization Pendulum” that was conducted by the Network Contagion Research Institute in collaboration with the Ruderman Family Foundation.

Israel is targeted 111 times more frequently than North Korea, 55 times more frequently than Russia, 38 times more frequently than Iran, and 12 times more frequently than China, according to a study by the Network Contagion Research Institute that examined over 100 million tweets sent between January 1, 2020, and June 30, 2022.

The Ruderman Foundation, based in Boston, presented its findings on July 12 during a gathering of the Knesset Caucus for Israel-American Jewry Relations. According to the research, the generally accepted Working Definition of Antisemitism by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance identifies treating Israel unfairly as an instance of Modern-Day Jewish hatred.

Although many individuals make a distinction between anti-Zionism and antisemitism, Adam Sohn, CEO of the Network Contagion Research Institute, asserted that the tropes they employ are remarkably similar.”

Anti-Zionist tropes are employed to support a broader assault against Jews worldwide, and we urge appropriate action to be taken against it.”

“The fact that Israel is measured differently from other countries in the world, using a double standard, requires us to place the issue on the agenda and insist on change in the global arena,” said Shira Ruderman, executive director of the Ruderman Family Foundation.

“This issue crosses political lines and worldviews, and it is an opportunity for elected officials from all sides of the political spectrum to denounce the phenomenon,” she continued.

In accordance with the nation’s Network Enforcement Act, Germany’s Federal Justice Office started the process of fining Twitter in April for failing to delete antisemitic hate speech.

According to sources, antisemitism has reportedly surged on Twitter and other social media platforms since Elon Musk gained control of the service late last year.
