Eylon Levy, a spokesman for the Israeli government, issued this warning in a speech. He remarked: ""Globally, I want to address this moment of peril for the Jewish people worldwide as we witness a disturbing spike in anti-Semitic hate speech and even instances of violence against Jews and Israelis following the Oct. 7 massacre."
"The [Israeli] National Security Council (NSC) and the [Israeli] Ministry of Foreign Affairs put out an unusual global travel warning. The NSC is urging all Israelis to consider whether any foreign travel anywhere in the world is necessary at this dangerous moment. Citizens planning to travel to countries with specific travel plans are asked to postpone their visits."
Levy continued that while all Israelis are exhorted to "exercise heightened caution when traveling anywhere abroad," the travel advisory emphasizes "Arab and Middle Eastern states, the Northern Caucasus and countries bordering Iran as areas of particular concern." He noted that "Jewish communities and their institutions, Israeli diplomatic missions and airports handling flights to and from Israel are key targets for anti-Semites and violent anti-Semites."
The spokesman also shared several tips for Israelis already abroad:
The travel warning comes after Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the Hezbollah terrorist group based in Lebanon, stated that "all options are open" – adding that the battle has extended to "more than one front." True enough, antisemitic attacks have not been confined to the Middle East alone, and have increased in other parts of the world.
In the U.S. alone, four different groups have reported a global increase in hate crimes against both Jews and Muslims. One such group is the Jewish Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which reported a 388 percent increase in antisemitic incidents in the country. During the period between Oct. 7 and Oct. 23, the ADL documented approximately 312 such incidents – with 190 cases directly linked to the conflict in Israel. Only 64 incidents were recorded during the same timeframe in 2022. (Related: Pro-Palestinian man arrested and charged with hate crimes after calling for “curses upon the Jews,” but Israeli officials openly call for mass EXTERMINATION of all Palestinians and no one says or does a thing.)
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) also disclosed that hate crimes significantly increased in October and reached the highest levels since data collection began in 1991. Its records demonstrate a notable increase in anti-Muslim incidents starting in 2015, with more bias-driven assaults against Muslims in 2016 than in 2001.
However, antisemitic hate crimes had been on the rise even before Oct. 7, 2023 – the date when Hamas attacked the Nir Oz community in Israel. The number of antisemitic hate crimes increased by 36 percent to a total of 1,124 between 2021 and 2022, marking the highest figure ever recorded by the FBI.
