CNAAN LIPHSHIZ

MY ENEMY’S ENEMY – EUROPE’S JEWS,
MUSLIMS AND THE FAR RIGHT

For the first time since World War II, European ultra-nationalists are using their anti-Islamist credentials to make substantial inroads into Jewish communities and electorates who spurned them only a few years ago. Using statistical data, interviews and analyses we will explore both the reasons and the consequences of this under-discussed (and often inconvenient) development

CNAAN is a journalist for the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) and contributor to the Times of Israel and The Forward, reporting about Jewish life and communities in France, the United Kingdom, Hungary and the former Soviet Union. He previously served as a counterintelligence analyst for Israel’s Defence Ministry and has written for both Maariv and Haaretz. Born in Haifa and currently residing in Amsterdam, Cnaan has reported from approximately forty countries, including Uzbekistan, the Congo and rebel-held territories in Ukraine. He is visiting Australia as a guest of Limmud Oz.
