The European continent is currently facing a distressing rise in Antisemitism. Often linked to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and entangled with Antizionist views, the European Jewish population is increasingly under attack. From vandalism of Jewish cemeteries in Ukraine to attacks on Jews on the streets of London, from Antisemitic caricatures at a parade in Belgium to Polish anti-vaxxers blaming Jews for COVID, these threatening incidents continue to grow in European society.
This panel will focus on this contemporary rise in Antisemitism. It will assess whether there is something distinctly European about this development, and whether manifestations of Antisemitism differ across the continent. It will examine the Antisemitism that is increasingly stemming from the far-left, the far-right, within sections of the Muslim communities of Europe, and hopes to consider what can be done to stem this hatred.
