Antisemitic videos on porn sites

Antisemitic porn videos are trending on adult content websites, which ignore calls to remove them, an Israel-based watchdog group said.

The nonprofit group, Fighting Online Antisemitism, or FOA, has identified dozens of videos on major adult content sites. Some feature actors dressed as Nazi officers acting out rape scenes of actresses portraying Jewish women.

Attempts to flag the videos and have them removed have gone unanswered, FOA told the news site Ice.co.il last week.

Videos featuring underage subjects or revenge porn are pulled off quickly, Tomer Aldubi, the founder of FOA, told Ice. But when it comes to antisemitism about Jews, he said, “the porn giants seem to not want to address it.”

In some of the videos in question, the hateful content is in the title alone, advertising videos whose actual content does not reference ethnicity as depicting a “Palestinian raping a Jew,” as one video title states. The number of videos involving Jews on porn sites has proliferated in recent years, according to the article.

The association reported on the videos for two of the largest porn sites in the world, which are also on the list of the 20 most watched sites in Israel - XNXX and Xvideos, both of which belong to a Czech company owned by two French residents.

Most of the videos have not been removed to date, and the site's response, which came after more than 24 hours, was: "We are monitoring the site, but if you think we missed something, you can report it. There is a report button below each video." This seems to be a generic answer and does not require any question whatsoever, without any reference to the subject of the referral.
