Is Islam Antisemitic?  

Available on Friday June 21st

Though they share similar values, guidelines, and principles, Islam and Judaism have a long, complicated relationship that has led to tension recorded within the Quran that might engender antisemitism.

Some believe that certain Quranic verses could be used to justify hostility towards Jews, while others say that the references must be understood in their historical and textual contexts and there have been multiple periods of Muslim-Jewish tolerance.

The program features the debaters, Tim Dieppe, Head of Policy at Christian Concern and Reza Aslan, Iranian-American Religion Scholar; Bestselling Author of “Zealot” and the journalists Mustafa Akyol – Senior Fellowon Islam & Modernity at the Cato Institute; Rabbi Schmuley Boteach – Rabbi, Author, and Media Host; and Sahar Aziz — Distinguished Professor of Law and Chancellor’s Social Justice Scholar at Rutger’s Law school, author of “The Racial Muslim: When Racism Quashes Religious Freedom”.

The program is moderated by the respected Emmy Award-Winning Journalist John Donvan.
