Syrian Jewish woman on Israeli delegation to the UN discusses antisemitism in Syria as she was growing up, among other things. She is the 2nd speaker.

I have just scanned the opening pages of Wistrich's book. It is a must read. I will soon download the PDF. Thanks for the tip.

Wistrich is a scholar of great intellect. His premature death was sad and certainly left a huge hole to the Antisemitism studies community. His book "Lethal Obsession" (2010) is a must read. I still have to read his latest "from ambivalence to betrayal" which I presume the current brillant article was inspired from.

This will certainly push me to read it now as soon as possible, before the second installment of Simon Schama's "The Story of the Jews" due in November. I have been waiting for this second book with eargerness. Of course, Schama is a historian in the same way as Wistrich, but the latter is an expert in the studies of anti-semitism.

Bataween,
this is the right link. There was one extra character in the link as given before. That extra character is an apostrophe in the letter combination: iis -- Somehow an apostrophe got in incorrectly.
