Walk-outs over 'Islamophobia' at antisemitism symposium
by Zoe Winograd
A seminar meant to highlight problems in dealing with antisemitism ran into trouble when audience members walked out — alleging Islamophobia on the part of some speakers.
At the forefront were leaders of the Community Security Trust, who challenged remarks made by the Egyptian writer Bat Ye'or, and Dr Manfred Gerstenfeld, a founding member of the Journal for the Study of Antisemitism, which sponsored the seminar, held at London's Wiener Library.
Bat Ye'or told the audience: "The source of antisemitism is the organisation of the Islamic corporation."
