Anti-Semitism In The Arab World? ... In Europe Too?


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.

Workshop Details:

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.
