Is there a double standard in the response to anti-Semitism against Arab Americans compared with the response to anti-Semitism directed against American Jews? Because the question seems too controversial for most in the mainstream to want to touch, Ralph Nader’s “Debating Taboos” debate series is taking it on.

This Thursday, AAI President Jim Zogby will join renowned Arab American author and professor Jack Shaheen to debate the question with Josef Olmert, adjunct professor at the University of South Carolina, and Kenneth Marcus of the Brandeis Center for Human Rights. The debate will be moderated by Patrick Sloyan, former Newsday reporter and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Journalism.

Are you in DC and want to attend the debate? Go to Busboys and Poets at 2021 14th Street, NW this Thursday at noon.
