Wor­ry­ing at­ti­tudes

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY -

CST COM­MU­NI­CA­TIONS di­rec­tor Mark Gard­ner told a Holo­caust sym­po­sium that the hope that an­tisemitism would be­come “an ugly ir­rel­e­vance” had been shat­tered by a steady es­ca­la­tion in hate crime and a con­tin­u­ing Ji­hadist ter­ror­ist threat.

“Only an id­iot or a racist would say that all Mus­lims are an­ti­semitic but far too many do hold deeply wor­ry­ing an­ti­semitic at­ti­tudes,” Mr Gard­ner told an in­vi­ta­tion-only au­di­ence of 200 at North­wood and Pin­ner Lib­eral shul.

Paul Gian­nasi, head of the cross-govern­ment hate crime pro­gramme, was also on the panel, chaired by Mas­ter of the Rolls and Head of Civil Jus­tice Lord Dyson.The sym­po­sium was or­gan­ised by the North­wood Holo­caust Me­mo­rial Day events com­mit­tee.
