Josef Joffe Editor, Die Zeit; Adjunct Professor of Political Science, Stanford University
Luis Lugo Director, Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life

“…By dint of power, purpose, and position, America and Israel are and will be the outsiders. Such nations are sometimes envied, more often feared, and always resented. They are never loved.” --from “Nations We Love to Hate: Israel, America, and the New Anti-Semitism,” by Josef Joffe

Join Dr. Josef Joffe, widely renowned editor, author, and scholar, for a discussion of the causes and implications of what he calls “neo-antisemitism,” and how and why it is closely related to another powerful force—anti-Americanism.
