Social Media has seen an outpouring of anti-Semitism following the Nice attack in France last week with many people pointing the finger of blame at ‘Israel’, ‘Jews’ and ‘Zionists’.
Anti-Semitism is already the single most common form of bigotry on the internet, according to a leading online hate monitoring organisation. And conspiracies are rife with Jews, Zionists and Israel being blamed for everything from creating ISIS, controlling the media and the banks, orchestrating the migrant crises, controlling governments and a whole host of other issues around the world. You name it, someone will blame Israel for it.
While it is not surprising that the Nice terror attack, which had nothing to do with Israel, the Jews or Zionists, is being blamed on them, it is still stocking.
Here are just a handful of the many tweets that have been shared on Twitter by anti-Semites.
Note: Some tweets contain profanity.

These are just a selection of tweets showing the attitudes, there is undoubtably a number of blogs, emails, videos and more saying the same things. Anti-Semitic attitudes are prevalent online and need to be confronted.
