“Israelophobia”: Jeremy Havardi interviews Jewish Chronicle editor Jake Wallis Simons

“Israelophobia”: Jeremy Havardi interviews Jewish Chronicle editor Jake Wallis Simons

By In Advocacy, Israel, News, Virtual Meeting On 23 March 2024


On Thursday night Jake Wallis Simons, editor of the Jewish Chronicle, was interviewed by Bureau director Dr. Jeremy Havardi on the subject of his book “Israelophobia”. Simons discussed the volume and intensity of anti-Israel hatred, showing how much of it was a barely disguised form of the world’s oldest hatred. He talked of its roots in the demonological campaigns of the left and Nazism, the struggles of identity politics in which Jews and Israel were depicted as ‘white’ and the prejudice we see on our streets today. It was a sobering discussion but a vital one for understanding the contours of this conflict and how it is playing out in public discourse.
