On November 14, 2023, a leaked phone call between Anti-Defamation League (ADL) Director Jonathan Greenblatt and an unknown Zionist propagandist went viral across social media. In the phone call, Greenblatt voiced his concerns about Gen Z’s flaccid support for Israel. The ADL director also blamed Tiktok for facilitating anti-Israeli sentiment.
“We have a major, major, major generational problem,” declared a voice in the call that is supposed to be ADL Director Jonathan Greenblatt on a conference call. “All the polling I’ve seen: the ADL’s polling, ICC’s polling, independent polling, suggests that this is not a left, right gap folks. The issue of the United States’ support of Israel is not left and right. It is young and old.”
“…Numbers of young people who think Hamas massacre was justified is shockingly and terrifyingly high. So we really have a TikTok problem, a GenZ problem and our community needs to put…energy to this, like fast,” he added.
