Arnold Forster was an attorney who fought against anti-Semitism and extremism and advocated for civil rights and the State of Israel in a career spanning nearly 60 years at the Anti-Defamation League. ADL's Annual Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents evolved from the annual audit of religious prejudice conceived by Mr. Forster in 1947 and has been adapted by many human relations agencies. His memoir, Square One, was published in 1988 and he co-authored several books with then-ADL National Director Benjamin R. Epstein, including The Troublemakers, and The New Anti-Semitism.

Log in. New antisemitism is the concept that a new form of antisemitism has developed in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, tending to manifest itself as opposition to Zionism and criticism of the Israeli government. The concept is included in some definitions of antisemitism, such as the Working Definition of Antisemitism and the 3D test of antisemitism. The concept generally posits that in the late 20th and early 21st centuries much of what is purported to be criticism of Israel by various individuals and world bodies is in fact tantamount to demonization, and that together with an alleged international resurgence of attacks on Jews and Jewish symbols, and an increased acceptance of antisemitic beliefs in public discourse, such demonization represents an evolution in the appearance of antisemitic beliefs. Proponents of the concept argue that anti-Zionism and demonization of Israel, or double standards applied to its conduct may be linked to antisemitism, or constitute disguised antisemitism, particularly when emanating simultaneously from the far-left, Islamism, and the far-right.
