Responses to Anti-Semitism
14th & V | Langston | June 21,2012 | 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Ralph Nader, Code Pink and Jewish Voice for Peace Invite you to the fourth debate in the “Debating Taboos” series.

The event features a debate on the question:

Is there a double standard in the response to anti-Semitism against Arab-Americans compared with the response to anti-Semitism against Jewish-Americans? The question is a reflection by many Arab-Americans and others that the variety of bigotry against them is treated too lightly by society – from Hollywood to Washington, D.C.

Debaters Include:

Jack Shaheen, author of “Reel Bad Arabs” and Professor Emeritus of Mass Communications from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville.

James Zogby, founder and president, Arab American Institute and author of “Arab Voices.”

Kenneth Marcus, Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law and former Staff Director at the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.

Josef Olmert, Adjunct Professor, University of South Carolina and author of the book “Unraveling the Knot: Between Arab and Jew.”

Moderator:

Patrick Sloyan, former Newsday reporter and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Journalism.
