Antisemitism and Mideast Governments Today

A Talk by David Andrew Weinberg, Ph.D.

 

Co-sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League

 

Antisemitic indoctrination played a major role in how Nazi Germany mobilized the general public for genocide against the Jewish people. Unfortunately, many governments in the Middle East still allow, enable, or even generate these sorts of antisemitic messages today, including in educational materials for schoolchildren or in state-controlled media outlets. Our ADL speaker will share with us striking examples of these trends from Arabic- and Persian-language materials that the organization has been documenting, exposing, and raising with government officials. He will also share with us some examples of other, more encouraging trends from the region, as well as several recommendations for positive action.
