FIGHTING ONLINE ANTISEMITISM

Who we are

‘Fighting Online Antisemitism’ (FOA) is a Non-Governmental Organization established in 2020. Our goal is to combat online antisemitism and cyberhate through volunteer training, reporting hateful content on social media, and raising awareness of the phenomena of cyberhate among the general public (through educational workshops and webinars).

 

Though young, we have trained over 200 international volunteers who regularly monitor antisemitic content in multiple languages and across seven leading social media networks.

 

We believe that removing online antisemitic content will contribute to the reduction of offline antisemitism worldwide. We strongly feel that the fight against antisemitism is not in the sole interest of the Jewish people. Combating cyberhate, promoting diversity, equality and tolerance is a goal shared by many who wish to create a better world, not only for Jews but for all of humanity.

 

Founded in Israel, our staff and volunteers based in many different countries around the world, help us make a difference on a global scale.

Goals

1
Monitoring manifestations of antisemitism, de-legitimization of the State of Israel, racism, and hatred in the online space in accordance with the International Alliance for the Preservation of the Holocaust's working definition of 'antisemitism'.
2
Raising awareness of the phenomenon of cyberhate and promoting pluralistic discourses (especially among youngers) through educational workshops.
3
Maintaining a database of manifestations of online antisemitism. Such data is utilized in periodical reports examining contemporary trends pertaining to online antisemitism on social media and removal rates of hateful content across various platforms.
4
Promoting cooperation between Governmental organizations, national and international Non-Governmental Organizations, civic society, and social media platforms. Such cooperation is necessary to combat cyberhate in general, and antisemitism in particular.
