Anti-Semitism is rising together with the wave of right-wing populism on both sides of the Atlantic. The context is also changing, with Israel turning away on a two-state solution to the Middle East crisis and accusations in Europe of a so-called new anti-Semitism by Muslim immigrants. Joining Greg to discuss the growing regional developments and political debates affecting what had recently seemed a relatively straightforward battle against anti-Semitism are Stacy Burdett, Andrew Baker and Susan Corke.
