While antisemitism is a real and persistent evil that needs to be eradicated, the charge of antisemitism can also be a highly potent weapon against the movement for Palestinian rights. Today that weapon is being used throughout the US and in many other countries to destroy personal reputations, bring legal charges against certain individuals and rob others of valuable opportunities, intimidate private and governmental institutions, and shut down free speech on campuses. Our speakers will take a close look at this controversial question as it impacts the church, and discuss how we can appropriately respond.
