Europe and the world against the Jews (PL/EN)29.06.2022 - 16:00 / JCF Tent, ul. Józefa 36 | Live: 31.jewishfestival.pl
“The hatred that begins with the Jews never ends with the Jews”. (Rabbi Jonathan Sacks)
The founding myth of mankind is fratricide, so I do not know who else should be comforted by the empty slogan “Never Again”.
The Holocaust has not been a lesson in sobriety for mankind. It has brought neither penance nor change. Only Israel has learnt an eternal lesson from it – you must be stronger than the evil in your fight against it, even if, and perhaps most importantly, when you are on your own. The harder Israel fights for survival, the stronger the hatred for both Israel and for all the Jews living in the Diaspora.
Anti-Semitism today has the face of anti-Zionism.
Hatred for the Jews and for the only Jewish state on earth, Israel, is constant. It is with horror that I realise how many international leaders and citizens would be relieved if Iran fulfilled its threats.
The following participants will take part in the debate on the eternal curse of hatred against the Jews, which never ends with the Jews;
Professor Stanisław Krajewski – author, also of a book entitled Nasza żydowskość (Our Jewishness)
Professor Yossi Klein-Halevi – author, also of a book entitled Letters to my Palestinian Neighbour
