Ten O'Clock News; Anti-Semitic hate crimes
Hope Kelly reports on an increase in the incidence of anti-Semitic incidents in Massachusetts, some of which may have been provoked by the Persian Gulf War. Interview with Sally Greenberg an attorney at the Anti-Defamation League. She says that the incidents include threats, assaults, and beatings, and age-old stereotypes of Jews are being resurrected by Holocaust revisionists, Ku Klux Klan members and others. Kelly reviews statistics for hate crimes against various racial and ethnic groups as well as against gays and lesbians in Boston. Kelly reports that hate crimes rose by 20% in Boston in 1990.
