Panelists decry Muslim anti-semitism
by Jodie Shupac
"The only way to kill an idea is to expose it," Raheel Raza, Muslim Canadian journalist, media consultant, anti-racism activist and author of Their Jihad… Not my Jihad! declared starkly to an audience of about 120 at the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies' (FSWC) inaugural Leadership Policy Conference on Anti-Semitism.
Held on Sunday, June 8, at the University of Toronto's Hart House, the conference featured five panel discussions, each examining a different element of contemporary anti-Semitism.
Raheel spoke on the third panel, "Muslims against Anti-Semitism," alongside Tahir Gora, Pakistani writer, activist and founder of Canadian Thinkers' Forum, a think-tank specializing in Islamic radicalization and anti-Semitic incidents in the Muslim diaspora, and Tarek Fatah, author of The Jew is Not My Enemy: Unveiling the Myths of Muslim Anti-Semitism, Toronto Sun columnist and founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress, a think-tank that gives a voice to Muslims not affiliated with existing organizations.
