(JTA) -- A video game and clips on Comedy Central's Web site "play into and encourage offensive anti-Semitic and anti-Israel stereotypes," the Anti-Defamation League said.

New ADL poll: anti-Semitism down, but don't get too comfortable

The nationwide survey of Americans showed that anti-Semitic attitudes are at the lowest level in recorded history – or at least as long as ADL has been recording them.

Only 12 percent of Americans “hold anti-Semitic views,” a decline from 15 percent  two years ago.  By way of contrast, 29 percent had anti-Semitic views in 1964.
