SKMA är en religiöst och politiskt obunden organisation

The Swedish Committee Against Antisemitism, SCAA is an organization with no affiliations to any political parties or religious organizations. Its purpose is to counteract and inform about antisemitism. The activity is financed with voluntary contributions.
SCAA continuously covers the public debate and mass media. Antisemite and racist expressions are criticized and answered.
SCAA also counteracts antisemitism through education, and delivers information and material to teachers, school pupils, media, political organizations and others. SCAA supplies speakers and advices at study trips to the places of the Holocaust.
The Swedish Committee Against Antisemitism was formed in 1983. The initiative grew from a result of the wave of antisemitism that was expressed at the time of the Lebanon war in 1982. Besides the legitimate critics against Israel politics, the war triggered anti-Jewish reactions both in Europe and in Sweden, in many ways unparalleled since the Second World War.
