The number of antisemitic incidents in Argentina rose in 2018 by 107% in comparison with 2017.

According to a report by the DAIA, the country’s Jewish community umbrella organization, there were 834 acts of anti-Semitism  in 2018 compared with 404 incidents reported in 2017. 

A survey in Argentina by the World Zionist found 61% agreed with the antisemitic prejudice of the “influence” of Jews in international markets, and 47% believed that the Jews are the first to turn their backs on people in need.

KAN's Mark Weiss spoke with Damian Pachter, an Argentinian  Jewish journalist  who now lives in  Israel, and asked him how widespread is anti-Semitism in Argentina.
