Description : Abstract
Hope Kelly reports on an increase in the incidence of anti-semitic incidents in Massachusetts. Kelly notes that some anti-semitic incidents may have been provoked by the Persian Gulf War. Kelly interviews Sally Greenberg (attorney, Anti-Defamation League). Greenberg discusses the increase in anti-semitic incidents. She says that the incidents include threats, assaults, and beatings. She adds that age-old stereotypes of Jews are being resurrected by Holocaust revisionists, Ku Klux Klan members and others. Kelly reviews statistics for hate crimes against various racial and ethnic groups as well as against gays and lesbians in Boston. Kelly reports that hate crimes rose by 20% in Boston in 1990. Kelly's report is accompanied by footage of Fred Leuchter, Jr. (Holocaust revisionist) and David Duke (Louisiana politician) and by footage of anti-semitic graffiti and flyers.
