This production is a recording of a panel discussion before an audience at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Several scholars, Menahem Milson, Yigal Carmon, Mohammed Dajani, Gadi Wolfsfeld, and Tamar Lebes all give scholarly insights into the origins of contemporary Arab anti-Semitism and how it is demonstrated in actions. The production quality of this is adequate. The sound is good but the picture seems to be from a camera phone. As this reviewer noted in a previous similar production, this recording will appeal most to those who are into C-Span. Lectures are not popular, let alone recordings of them, which will make the audience for this work limited. Still, the subject matter is quite pertinent. Those institutions which want to go into the topic of Radical Islam in depth should at least consider.
