Prejudice against or hatred of Jews—known as antisemitism—has plagued the world for more than 2, years. Yet even in the aftermath of the Holocaust, antisemitism remains a continuing threat. Manifestations of this hatred appear in literature, art, film, speeches, legislation, and on the Internet, as well as in acts of violence. One of the most notorious and widely circulated examples of antisemitic literature is the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. It purports to be the report of a secret meeting of Jewish leaders planning their domination of the world.

Anti-semitism in Adbusters,
Adbusters describes itself as "a global network of artists, activists, writers, pranksters, students, educators and entrepreneurs who want to advance the new social activist movement of the information age. Characterized by some as anti-capitalist or opposed to capitalism,  it publishes the reader-supported, advertising-free Adbusters , an activist magazine with an international circulation of , by the late s  devoted to challenging consumerism. Adbusters has launched numerous international campaigns, including Buy Nothing Day , TV Turnoff Week and Occupy Wall Street ,  and is known for their " subvertisements " that spoof popular advertisements. Adbusters was founded in by Kalle Lasn and Bill Schmalz, a duo of award-winning documentary filmmakers living in Vancouver. Since the early s, Lasn had been making films that explored the spiritual and cultural lessons the West could learn from the Japanese experience with capitalism. In , the British Columbia Council of Forest Industries, the "voice" of the logging industry, was facing tremendous public pressure from a growing environmentalist movement.
This man that I speak of is an anti-Semitist, meaning someone who is prejudiced against Jews or another race. This man along with his many other followers thought Jews were an alien race. Throughout this paper you will find out who this man is, what he did, why he did it. Also, you will learn about what life was like for the Jews during this time.
An ugly old tradition is back: exploiting anti-Semitism to break the backs of popular movements that threaten the power of the wealthiest 1 percent of our population. It is being used to undermine the Occupy Wall Street movement, which has conservatives in a state of near panic. I don't know the first time the tactic was used, although it dates back almost to the beginning of the Jewish diaspora.
