ISGAP Chair, Natan Sharansky discussed the developments in Israel. Mr. Sharansky is the recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He famously developed a vital definition for the new antisemitism – the 3d test, to help us distinguish legitimate criticism of Israel from antisemitism. The first “D” is the test of demonization, the second – of double standards, the third – of delegitimization. This 3d principle was widely accepted by different organizations that fight antisemitism and was included in the international definition of antisemitism.
