How effectively does your organization stand against the spread of anti-semitism in the world? Our presence around the world with members and supporters affords us the opportunity to reach out to the leaders of the various nations to speak about the issues of anti-Semitism in the United States and globally, in Europe, in Asia, in Latin America, in Australia, New Zealand and in the Middle East: We are out there advocating with our professionals and volunteers to remind the world that anti-Semitism is not just a Jewish issue but leads to a global issue of hatred that can extend anywhere.
How do you assess the level of anti-Semitism in post-Soviet countries? We have found a welcome response from the leaders of many of these nations who understand the importance of fighting anti-Semitism. Some have initiated programs and when they see signs or evidence of this activity, they are quick to respond to try to remind their countrymen about the evils of anti-Semitism and how it will not be tolerated under their leadership.
What are your organization's plans for the near future? During the remainder of my term as president, we will continue to be the global advocate for all people.

How have the challenges of anti-Semitism and racism changed over the years? The challenges from anti-Semitism and racism over the years have changed in some ways, and remain the same in others. Before the advent of the internet, we probably knew less about the extent of anti-Semitic acts, and often there was a time lag between the discovery of such activity and having the public learning about it. Today, we hear about it real time. The opportunity to spread anti-Semitism has increased exponentially, with the appearance of websites that promote hate, and bloggers and those who comment free to add their own ingredients of hatred to the mix.
Today, we see manifestations of it everywhere: from the extreme left, the extreme right and from the Middle East.
Today, being vigilant means tracking and responding to these threats and challenges each and every day. Confronting anti-Semitism and racism means all of us need to be involved. In addition to responding immediately when these acts occur, we need to re-double our efforts to educate each new generation of young people about the harm inflicted on all of us by hate speech, intolerance, and surely, acts of violence that can grow out of it.
