“The Digital Service Act must become a clear edge in the fight against antisemitism.
Detecting and preventing antisemitism on the Internet earlier, will be the challenge the future regulation of digital services has to be up to. Online platforms are all too often places of open hatred: the future law on digital services must therefore efficiently put a stop to hate speech and fake news and thus enable hidden antisemitism to be clearly identified, clearly addressed, clearly forbidden and thus nipped in the bud We all recently had to experience incitement appeals with a view to the despicable attack in France.
There are currently no binding reporting and remedial mechanisms for illegal online content. Just like the consistent prosecution of such crimes. Inciting online hatred and resentment is not a case for voluntary Internet netiquette – here we need a clear legislative framework: With an online compass, Europe could set standards and thus significantly open a global chapter on new internet security.”
