Last updated Friday, September 17, 5:13 PM


JEWISH groups warned the U.S. Congress about the dangers of hate on the Internet. Testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, the Anti-Defamation League urged lawmakers to conduct a comprehensive study of the problem and provide training for federal prosecutors to crack down on bigotry that crosses the line into criminal conduct. The Orthodox Union and the Simon Wiesenthal Center testified that a growing number of sites are promoting hate, mayhem and terrorism, saying the number has grown from one at the time of the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 to 2,200 today.
