Global Anti-Semitism Review Act of 2004

The Global Anti-Semitism Review Act of 2004 begins by acknowledging an increase in acts of anti-Semitism, even in established democracies, and rearticulates the USG’s commitment to combating anti-Semitism worldwide.  The legislation calls for a Report on Global Anti-Semitism, reviewing acts of anti-Semitism and actions taken by governments to respond to those acts.  The Global Anti-Semitism Review Act also establishes the Office to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism at the State Department, headed by the Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism.  In addition to monitoring and combating anti-Semitism, the Special Envoy is responsible for coordinating anti-Semitism reporting in the annual Human Rights Reports and the International Religious Freedom Report.
