The Davis Interfaith Coalition for Peace and Justice in the Middle East presents a free showing of “Unmasked Judeophobia: The Threat To Civilization” at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Blanchard Room of the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis.
This film interviews leading thinkers about criticism by academic groups, cultural and religious institutions and the mainline media against the legitimacy of the state of Israel, which the movie suggests has anti-Semitism at is core.
Commenting on this trend, Nobel Peace Prize recipient Elie Wiesel opens the documentary with these words: “Since 1945, I was not so afraid as I am now. I am afraid because anti-Semitism, which I had thought belonged to the past, has somehow survived.
“I was convinced in ’45 that anti-Semitism had died with its Jewish victims at Auschwitz and Treblinka, but I see, no, the Jews perished, but anti-Semitism in some parts of the world is flourishing.”
