Provocative and thoughtful as he usually is, Hitchens opines on anti-semitism for The Atlantic:
There is, probably first and certainly foremost, religious anti-Semitism. Unlike other nations or peoples, Jews were among the witnesses to the alleged lives and preachings of Jesus and Muhammad, and turned away from men they deemed false Messiahs. It is inconceivable that they will ever be quite forgiven for doing so.
There also is a continuation of the video interview, in which Hitchens makes some interesting observations regarding insular “organic societies” and how they are perturbed by the presence of alien and questioning Jews.
