UNCOVERAGE: In the U.S., 76% of hate crimes are directed to Jews, with Muslims a distant second with 6% of attacks.


A new report from the Anti-Defamation League released Tuesday found that California had the country’s highest number of anti-Semitic assaults, harassment and vandalism incidents last year. 

Three anti-Semitic incidents occur every day in America, according to the new audit, and 23 percent of those happen in California.  

A shooting attack on the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC and vandalism on the Holocaust Memorial in San Francisco, were just two of the 1,211 anti-Semitic incidents reported in 2009. 

The new audit by the ADL shows California led the nation with 275 anti-Semitic incidents in 2009; New York, New Jersey and Florida follow with 209, 132, and 90 incidents, respectively. 

Rabbi Stephen Pearce of Temple Emanu-El in San Francisco said that anti-Semitic graffiti has appeared on his temple. 

He said he felt that the high number of incidents in California could be attributed to the economy — when times are tough he says people look for someone to blame.
