In their own words:

Israel – Israeli Students combating antisemitism online was founded in 2011 with the purpose of fighting the growing antisemitism and holocaust denial against the Jewish nation on the internet. Tens of students participate each year from various academic institutions in Israel and different degrees, and monitor antisemitic content on social media in 12 languages. The work is based on the working definition of the IHRA organization which was approved by more than 30 countries. Part of the achievements of the program over the years: On Facbeook, monitoring over 20,000 antisemitic and Holocaust deniers, with an average removal rate of 44%. On Twitter, monitoring more than 17,000 accounts with an average removal rate of 40%. On YouTube, monitoring more than 6,000 videos with an average removal rate of 35%. On Instagram, monitoring more than 9,000 accounts and pictures with an average removal rate of 91%. On Yahoo Answers and Quora, we answered over 3,000 questions. The program is leading in its field due to its special nature and operation and is appreciated by many countries. The program cooperates with human rights organizations and NGO’S such as Yad Vashem, ADL, Kantor Center, CST, AJC, INACH, CRIF, Simon Weisenthal Center and more. The program is the only Israeli representative in the international Network against Cyber hate which deals with racism and hatred on the internet. In 2014, the Academic Program for Combating Antisemitism was established at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) in Herzliya in order to channel the program’s activities to the academia. The program grants credit to about 30 students every year for academic training and two-semester activities. The academic program encourages students, both Jewish and non-Jewish, to initiate a personal project to eradicate the phenomenon of hatred on the Internet.
