In the second of our Human Rights Series organized by Martine Trink Rubenstein, President of LICRA USA, two leading academics discuss two forms of hatred: antisemitism and Islamophobia. Antisemitism, dating back millennia, is based on a myriad of conspiracy theories that have survived to-date alongside the “New Antisemitism” fueled by anti-Zionist sentiment. Islamophobia, coined in the late 20th century, decries the discrimination felt in the West by large immigrant Muslim populations in response to their distinct religious and cultural traditions and the hostility brought about by terrorist attacks perpetrated by radical Islamists.

What do these racisms have in common? How do they differ? What can be done to fight them? How to encourage tolerance and dialogue? These important and topical questions will be addressed by our two speakers through the lens of history, religion and politics at a time when religious-based attacks throughout the world have risen to levels unseen since WWII.
