The AJC Transatlantic Institute interviewed Douglas Murray, Associate Director of the Henry Jackson Society (London), on the need for Europe to respond to Arab Anti-Semitism following its workshop (co-organised with the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung) on that subject.
On 28 January 2013, the AJC Transatlantic Instute and the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung held their second annual workshop on anti-Semitism to mark International Holocaust Rememberance Day. This year's event looked at the presence and prominence of anti-Semitism in the Arab world following the revolutionary wave that swept through the region starting in December 2010. What are the origins of this anti-Semitism? Is it a continuation of a long-established trend or a new phenomenon? What is the impact on the future of Arab-Israeli relations and the prospects for peace?
The workshop - which brought together senior EU offiicials, diplomats and policy experts - assessed these questions and how the European Union should act to counter this dangerous trend.
