The Deadliest Lies: The Israeli Lobby and the Myth of Jewish Control

Recorded on October 29, 2007

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Abraham Foxman - noted representative of the Jewish community and staunch defender of human rights - delivers a powerful rebuttal to the idea of "The Israel Lobby" and the myth of a global Jewish conspiracy. He shows how old stereotypes associated with the most virulent forms of bigotry have been resurfacing and taking subtle new forms and addresses the public figures who make these beliefs appear credible. He also reveals a disturbing parallel trend: the decline of global Jewish solidarity, which he argues is critical for dealing with current threats.

Abraham H. Foxman is the National Director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and one of today's leading voices against hatred, discrimination, and violence across the world. He is also the author of Never Again?: The Threat of the New Anti-Semitism.

"…a sober, methodical, and laudably dispassionate indictment of well-known politicians, pundits, and professors who dress up centuries-old canards about Jews in more acceptable twenty-first century garb…"
