By the Numbers

The Obama Administration’s efforts to jumpstart the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, radical Islamic terrorism, the delegitimization of Israel, were among the top issues affecting Jews in 2010, according to the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) annual list. “For much of the year there was a glimmer of hope that the Israeli-Palestinian peace process would finally get off the ground, and yet our hopes diminished with each passing week as the parties failed to reach a consensus and the settlements issue became a major excuse for the Palestinians,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL national director.  “Meanwhile, the unrelenting global assault against Israel’s legitimacy continued apace.”

ADL’s top 10 issues:
1 – Mideast Peace process drags on
2 – Iran defiant, despite stronger sanctions
3 – Antisemitism still a potent force
4 – Israel delegitimization continued apace
5 – Jews targeted for terror
6 – Midterm elections shake up Washington
7 – Human rights scorecard mixed
8 – Flotilla affair sparks backlash
9 – Catholic-Jewish relations tested
10 -Bullies and antisemites proliferate online
