Lawfare Project wins historic breakthrough in fight against online hate as Google blocks antisemitic content in Spain — The Lawfare Project

#1 HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR IMPACT IN 2019

"As was recently highlighted in The Wall Street Journal, a group of Spanish Jews—represented by The Lawfare Project—sued Google for failing to censor racist content. As a result, Google reached an understanding with our legal team in Spain to block defamatory content, including material promoting Nazi ideology and denying the Holocaust. This outcome will have far-reaching implications."

i24NEWS - French Parliament passes resolution stating anti-Zionism is antisemitism

JUST IN:

France's Parliament on Tuesday passed a resolution declaring the country views anti-Zionism a form of antisemitism.

France's National Assembly adopted the motion 154 in favor and 72 opposed, which includes the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of antisemitism.

“For some years now, France, the whole of Europe, but also almost all Western democracies are facing a rise in antisemitism,” the resolution states.

“Anti-Zionist acts can at times hide antisemitic realities. Hate toward Israel due to its perception as a Jewish collective is akin to hatred towards the entire Jewish community.”

This is a developing story

EU Slaps ‘New Kind Of Yellow Star On Jewish-Made Products’

November 12th, 2019 is the day the EU mandated discriminatory labels for Jewish-made goods. November 12th, 1938 is the anniversary of the German government’s Decree on the Elimination of the Jews from Economic Life. History must NOT repeat itself. This is antisemitism - and it’s disgusting.

International Criminal Court Declines to Prosecute Alleged Israeli War Crimes

A message from our Founder and Executive Director, Brooke Goldstein:

"It is a privilege and honor for me to lead The Lawfare Project, the world's only Jewish and pro-Israel litigation fund.

Over the last several years, we have become the go-to institution for anyone facing harassment or discrimination as a result of their Jewish identity or their support for the Jewish state.

Since our founding we have filed over 80 legal actions in 17 jurisdictions, recruited over 400 attorneys and 37 major law firms.

We have facilitated millions of dollars of pro bono legal support the Jewish communities around the world.

In this increasingly toxic environment of extreme anti-Semitism, we need all the help we can get protecting Israel and securing the civil and human rights of the Jewish people worldwide."
