Brian Klug is Senior Research Fellow & Tutor in Philosophy at St. Benet's Hall, Oxford and a member of the philosophy faculty at Oxford University. He is also an honorary fellow of the Parkes Institute for the Study of Jewish/non-Jewish Relations, University of Southampton.

He is associate editor of Patterns of Prejudice, a peer-reviewed journal examining social exclusion and stigmatization, [1] and a founder member of the Jewish Forum for Justice and Human Rights, a UK-based group that addresses racism and anti-Semitism, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, immigration, and the treatment of asylum seekers.

Klug was one of a number of academics who submitted evidence to the British All-Party Parliamentary Inquiry into Antisemitism, which published its report in September 2006. [2] He has criticized the concept of new antisemitism as being "confused" in his 2004 essay "The Myth of the New Anti-Semitism" published in The Nation[3], and in several other writings.

In February 2007, he was a signatory to the declaration of Independent Jewish Voices, a new Jewish group in the UK, which criticized the Board of Deputies of British Jews for its unconditional support of Israel.

Dr. Brian Klug

Brian Klug is Senior Research Fellow & Tutor in Philosophy at St. Benet's Hall and a member of the philosophy faculty at Oxford University. He is also an honorary fellow of the Parkes Institute for the Study of Jewish/non-Jewish Relations, University of Southampton.

In 2006, he launched a movement called "Independent Jewish Voices". He said that it was intended to give a voice to those Jews who disagreed with the Anglo-Jewish establishment's attitude, which he felt was too pro-Zionist.

Sourced

  • [W]hen anti-Semitism is everywhere, it is nowhere. And when every anti-Zionist is an anti-Semite, we no longer know how to recognize the real thing--the concept of anti-Semitism loses its significance.
