Free Speech Union member Daphna Whitmore talks with Daniel Ben-Ami, an author, and journalist based in London. His website "The Radicalism of Fools" aims to develop a better understanding of anti-Semitism and its root causes. Daniel talks about different forms of anti-Semitism from the right and the left. He explains why definitions of anti-Semitism should not be imposed through initiatives like the IHRA definition of antisemitism and why censorship is not an answer to the anti-Israel BDS boycott movement. This fascinating discussion covers much more including whether deplatforming Nazis works and how censorship risks letting bad ideas go unchallenged join
