Anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, and the Future of Religious Racism

The Atlantic’s Leon Wieseltier and The Islamic Monthly’s Arsalan Iftikhar discuss current upticks in anti-Semitism and Islamophobia, their impact on the rise of right-wing political parties in Europe, American media coverage of religious hate crimes, and more. How might interfaith cooperation and inter-Abrahamic dialogue work to change a worrisome trend?

This discussion took place at the 2015 Aspen Ideas Festival.
