Hitchens: Islamic Jihad is among the toxic forms of anti-Semitism
By Cynthia Lee March 04, 2010 Abridged.
Christopher Hitchens, an internationally known columnist, intellectual and author whose provocative books and essays in Slate, Vanity Fair, the Atlantic and other publications have hammered at organized religion, the Clintons, Winston Churchill and Mother Teresa alike, appeared Wednesday, March 3, before a packed audience at UCLA to portray anti-Semitism as "the godfather of all other forms of racism" and "the gateway to the tyranny of fascism and war."
Hitchens urged his audience to "be discerning in picking out the real enemies and toxic forms of anti-Semitism, such as that posed by Islamic jihad."
