SIMON WIESENTHAL CENTER'S DIGITAL HATE AND TERRORISM 2005 REPORT REVEALS 25% SPIKE IN HATE SITES
The Simon Wiesenthal Center presented its 2005 interactive CD ROM Report, Digital Hate and Terrorism 2005 CD-ROM to California Homeland Security Deputy Director, Erroll Southers, and 40 other law enforcement and community activists from across the nation. The briefing took place at the Center's Museum of Tolerance.
Tracked by the Center's Task Force Against Terrorism and Hate, the report is based on over 5,000 problematic web sites that aid and abet terrorism, promote racial violence, antisemitism, and xenophobia. They include sites from every continent and in many languages including Spanish, German, Russian, Japanese and Arabic. There is also a separate section on hate games and websites targeting children.
Digital Hate and Terrorism 2005 CD-ROM is available for purchase April 15.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center is one of the largest international Jewish human rights organizations with over 400,000 member families in the United States. It is an NGO at international agencies including the United Nations, UNESCO, the OSCE, and the Council of Europe.
