Mentions of Israel were especially high this week due to the murder of two Israeli brothers outside the town of Hawara and the violent settler riots that ensued, and the murder of an Israeli-American north of the Dead Sea. 
The conversation began to grow Sunday evening, soon after the Hawara attack, and spiked considerably after news broke of the Israeli settlers’ rampage. Users shared videos and photos of the incident and condemned the riots, comparing them to pogroms and genocide. This led to an exceptionally high number of mentions of “apartheid” and “ethnic cleansing.” 

The conversation spilled into the next day and slightly increased Monday afternoon when the murder of Elan Ganeles was first reported, which garnered a response from students at Columbia University, his alma mater.

White supremacists across the country labeled last Saturday as a “National Day of Hate” against Jews. Despite the promotion of this threat, no major antisemitic incidents were reported across the United States last weekend. 

Jewish communities across the country showed their resilience and strength in the face of hate. Temple Emanu-El in Manhattan held an outdoor Shabbat service and declared the day as a "Day of Resolve." Rep. Dan Goldman (D-N.Y.), used #ShabbatOfPeaceNotHate to show solidarity with the Jewish community and combat hate.

“Khazarian Mafia"

The "Khazarian Mafia" is an antisemitic conspiracy theory that seeks to delegitimize Jewish connections to Israel and evokes antisemitic tropes of dual loyalty and control. It falsely claims that Ashkenazi Jews are not the "real Jews" from Israel but descendants of Khazars, a semi-nomadic Turkic people who allegedly converted to Judaism in the seventh century. This theory has been debunked by numerous studies.
Although the conspiracy has been around since the eighth century, it received renewed attention in the last year with the Russian invasion of Ukraine because the Khazars lived in modern-day Ukraine. This week, the conspiracy was invoked as U.S. Secretary of Treasury Janet Yellen, who is Jewish, visited Ukraine to express support for the country amid the ongoing war.
