The United States on Monday appointed a special envoy to monitor and combat anti-Semitism as a new State Department report warned about incidents in VenezuelaEgypt and Iran.

Secretary of State John Kerry named Ira Forman, a long time director of the National Jewish Democratic Council, as special envoy citing a “troubling trend” of anti-Semitism around the world. Forman succeeds Hannah Rosenthal, who stepped down last year.

The 2012 report on religious freedom said an increase worldwide in anti-Semitism was “of great concern.”
