The latest report by a nonprofit group, Fighting Online Antisemitism (FOA), makes some shocking revelationship about pornographic websites. According to the latest revelations, antisemitic porn videos are going viral on adult content websites.

Apparently, despite calls to take these videos down, the Israel-based watchdog group says that the sites have ignored such requests. FOA has reportedly identified dozens of videos on several adult content sites. Some of these videos feature actors dressed as Nazi officers acting out rape scenes of porn stars portraying Jewish women.

Last week, FOA reportedly told the news site Ice.co.il that attempts to flag the videos and have them removed have gone unanswered. In some of these videos, the hateful content is in the title itself. As per a report in the publication, pornographic videos featuring underage subjects subjects or revenge porn are pulled off quickly, Tomer Aldubi, the founder of FOA, told Ice. However, that same haste was not displayed when it came to antisemitism in porn videos. He said, “the porn giants seem to not want to address it.”

The association reported on these videos circulating via two of the largest porn sites in the world - XNXX and Xvideos. These also happen to be on the list of the 20 most watched sites in Israel. Both XNXX and Xvideos belong to a Czech company owned by two French residents. As per the report, most of the videos have not been removed to date. In fact, the porn sites reportedly did not even bother to answer or explain why they have not taken action.

Some reports online reveal that some of these videos were produced with the intention of depicting scenes involving Jews. This includes a 2017 Bangbros production with the actress known as Becky Sins playing the role of a haredi Orthodox woman who gets into a van with men who have sex with her. "I take it cover-up is necessary in your culture," one of the men tells the actress in the van. The actors then throw the woman’s clothes into a ditch and drive off as she collects the clothes, calling her a “bitch.”

Aldubi also described the severity of the videos. "These are very graphic, very violent, very blatant," Alsubi said, adding that one of such videos has over two million views. "Antisemitism is everywhere - in the entire online space," says Aldubi.

He warns that this content is "antisemitic things, which encourage antisemitism", and that "one can assume that anyone who watches these videos is antisemitic, or enjoys seeing Jews abused." Since prompt action not taken, Aldobi is getting more and more people to take matters into their own hands. Aldobi calls on users who encounter this type of content to report it to an organization set up last year to fight antisemitism on social media, and calls for action against any company that produces or distributes such content.
