FIGHTING ONLINE ANTISEMITISM

About Us

Fighting Online Antisemitism (FOA) is a nonprofit organization which has taken on the challenge of monitoring and removing antisemitic content found on the internet, in various languages across seven social media platforms. FOA is the only Israeli member in INACH, an international network which works to clean the internet from hate posts.

 

Since its foundation, volunteers have succeeded in reporting hundreds of examples of antisemitic conspiracy theories and misleading content, leading to the deletion of significant amounts of material from the world’s leading social media platforms.

Our Vision

We believe that the removal of antisemitic content in the online space will reduce the number of antisemitic incidents and acts of violence in the public space against Jewish communities around the world. We believe that the fight against anti-Semitism is first and foremost for human rights and minorities, liberalism, pluralism, equality and acceptance of the other, and the creation of a better world for the Jewish people and for humanity as a whole.

Our Goals

1
Monitoring online hate (antisemitism, delegitimisation, racism and other manifestations) in accordance with the IHRA Working Definition of Antisemitism.

3
Establishing and developing a database of online antisemitism and promoting international, systematic, simultaneous and effective activities to remove antisemitic content.
