Host: Hudson Institute. What are the sources of contemporary Muslim anti-Semitism? Are they primarily ancient or modern? What are its implications for the analysis of contemporary issues and especially the challenge of radical Islam? What liabilities does it present not only to Jews and other non-Muslims but for Muslims themselves? These and related questions have become increasingly important for policy analysis and formulation. A new book by Dr. Andrew Bostom, entitled The Legacy of Islamic Anti-Semitism, is the most recent contribution to addressing these issues. It provides an anthology of scholarly reviews, essays, and primary sources that relate to this subject, including an extensive introductory analysis by Dr. Bostom presenting his conclusions. Dr. Bostom will present his new book and his views at a seminar of the Hudson Institute. The seminar will be moderated by Dr. Hillel Fradkin, who will also provide comments.
