EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini Addresses AJC Global Forum
Fueled by the discoveries of natural gas in the Eastern Mediterranean, Greece, Cyprus, and Israel are forging an alliance of like-minded Western democracies that deserves U.S. support. AJC CEO David Harris and Endy Zemenides, head of the Hellenic American Leadership Council (HALC), make the case in the Times of Israel that the “steel and coal of the 21st century” might even usher in a new era of peace and security in the region.
AJC Berlin Director Deidre Berger, writing in the “Jüdische Allgemeine,” calls on the German government to outlaw the anti-Semitic terror organization Hezbollah. Germany’s word carries weight. Others would undoubtedly follow. This step would also be a practical contribution in the fight against anti-Semitism and for Israel’s security.
In “Mission Impossible? Repairing the Ties between Europe and Israel,” a publication of “The Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs,” Transatlantic Institute Director Daniel Schwammenthal highlights the EU’s propensity to look at its relationship with the Jewish state predominantly through the prism of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Writing in “New Europe,” Michael Sieveking, Deputy Director of the AJC Transatlantic Institute, urges EU Member States to adopt and fully implement the IHRA Working Definition of anti-Semitism, which includes a provision on anti-Zionism.
Looking back at last December’s historic EU Council declaration on the fight against anti-Semitism, AJC Transatlantic Institute Director Daniel Schwammenthal praises in The Wall Street Journal the bloc for recognizing that discrimination against Israel is indeed anti-Semitic. After all, what sense would it make to say “I don’t think Ireland has a right to exist, but I’m not anti-Irish”?
Transatlantic Institute Director Daniel Schwammenthal argues in "European View," the journal of the Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies, that Europe and the U.S. ought to cooperate to counter Iran’s nuclear ambitions and regional aggression.
