The Ministry of Diaspora on Thursday unveiled a new system that monitors anti-Semitic posts on social media in real time.
The system, dubbed Anti-Semitism Cyber Monitoring System (ACMS), was developed by the Defense Ministry and other cyber companies. It allows authorities to view exactly how many anti-Semitic posts are currently online, how viral they are and who is behind them. It can also sort the posts by country name, exposing the countries with the most online anti-Semitism.
“Let every anti-Semitic activist on social media know he is exposed from now on,” said Diaspora Minister Naftali Bennett. “It’s time we put a mirror in front of our haters and expose the ugly face of the modern anti-Semite, the one who doesn’t hang swastikas out on the street but posts them on Twitter. From this day on, we will know who those anti-Semitic inciters are and they will be dealt with by law enforcement authorities worldwide.”
