The Kantor Center is happy to announce the publication of the latest of its Position Papers. In her paper “Are the New Forms of Antisemitism Prohibited in the European Legal Systems?”, attorney Talia Naamat analyzes how antisemitic sentiments have spread from individual Jews and Jewish institutions to include the Jewish state. She notes that in most social, cultural and political spheres in Europe, it is unacceptable and unlawful to incite hatred against a Jewish person, but the legal status of inciting hatred against the Jewish state is far less clear. Her paper discusses the matter of adjudicating the phenomenon of new antisemitism in various European countries and their legal systems.
