baker thank you very much for being with us today so we'll start with a terminal question what do you think is anti-semitism rising or is it falling well it's sort of hard to give a simple answer except i would say a decade ago we imagine anti-semitism was diminishing and we had hoped it would be more of an historical issue than a contemporary one unfortunately i think over these last ten years we've seen something very different we have seen a resurgence of as i said appearing with your own countries where we would have expected it say in western europe we've seen it really was persisting in many other parts of the world that so i think we've given more attention to it during the sliced years it's still with us unfortunately what do you think some of the factors driving to increase. well again i think it varies from country to country clearly
2:31 pm
one aspect that has emerged more recently has been events in the middle east the state of israel essential truly. semitic incidents in various places typically in the west but we've also seen what some people would call a new form of advice elitism and that's when you're the state of israel itself is the minute is brought into question is the clear to races state essentially where that itself becomes a new form of anti-semitism so you do saying that the ongoing stalemate in the middle east is affecting antisense and globally well at the very least we can certainly demonstrate that conflicts in the middle east may trigger anti-semitic events elsewhere and particularly in europe western europe where you have growing arab and muslim communities they have become a source of anti-semitic incidents. at least elements of those communities so
2:32 pm
that's clearly one aspect but then i think even in public discourse there is something about the state of israel that has engendered very antagonistic reactions that cross over from a point of being mere criticism and to become something else when i think israel continues settlement building the church people around the world actually suffered dislike sometimes i would hate it because of that you know i wish it were so simple as saying the issue is only settlements i know advocate of settlements but i think we're the middle east conflict has sparked a. spike in anti-semitism it off in rages people who have no love for the state of israel in any for so to blame settlements to blame israel itself is almost akin to what had been a more traditional notion of blaming jews for it i say this and jews behave in this fashion in this fashion. people would say bring it on themselves of course you know
2:33 pm
it's anti semites that be a responsibility for anti-semitism not jews and in the same way israel is not a response so it's holding jews collectively responsible for the actions of israel is consider anti-semitism why does israel want to sanctify a jewish character at the state well i think from the very beginning the notion of israel was to be a jewish state to be a jewish state but also a democratic state with full rights for all of its citizens jewish would know in jewish i think in all of the world the one state that is in free countries tradition by the spirit judaism is really inappropriate i mean many countries have the stablished state church is. a church has descended great britain but no one would suggest that. in the u.k. there is god. democracy. rights for all its citizens recently
2:34 pm
for foreign ministers put off the decision to recognize palestine how does this set back your mission well i think personally i would say my view but shared by many others is that the palestinian state should come out of direct negotiations between the palestinian authority in the state of israel and i hope that happens at some point soon but i think that's the way the state of palestine should emerge not by some recognition or decree from outside. recently airplay cname interior ministry official denying the holocaust and they called it a legend and this sort of case is what impact protecting the holocaust have. i think you mean laws that would prohibit holocaust denial and it's something that we're all concerned about in the case of lithuania in fact shortly after this
2:35 pm
official wrote this article was published. he lost his job in the interior ministry . and with the way he had a very strong statement about this i think that's important that will never describe the denial or question of the holocaust emerges there should be a quick and swift response in some cases some countries have laws they can be employed sometimes they work many times they take a very long time before they are implemented or before a prosecution leads to a conviction so it's all the more reason that political leaders need to speak quickly and strongly also nasa commemorations were allowed in the baltic countries over the past few years and these are the countries who are members of the european union have made what is markets are going to zation want to do more to fight anti-semitism in their membership but you know you you point to a very i think
2:36 pm
a very serious issue and a problem that really began in the early ninety's after the openness freedom reestablishment of democracy in these countries you did have in latvia for example the former was for the s.s. veterans parading in their uniforms and in those early years government officials received there and i think this has been very much part of the discussions even as these countries we seek in membership in nato before in excess and i think has been much progress i don't think in any case is the progress always complete but these groups do continue to march but they're not received by by governments they're not really condemning. i mean they say they're not for or against they don't come out condemning. well you know i don't i don't think that's really entirely so i think you need to look more carefully we had many. discussions for example with president
2:37 pm
the two friedberger during her term terms in office and i think she became a very strong voice both in recognizing the holocaust that took place in latvia the importance of commemorating it and of making sure that these kinds of groups yes they do more actually yes they can. but. they're not received. their commended by the government leadership they do they do criticize them but let's be honest too there's a segment in the society where just a woman leaves this kind of populism that plays on that fascist era passed not only in the baltic states it's present in slovakia and remaining in other countries that had a difficult history during the nazi era this is something we need to keep working on but you do believe as of today politicians are showing enough leadership on such fundamental issue i don't think i'd ever say they're showing enough leadership because i think there's always more that political leadership can do and
2:38 pm
unfortunately it's the nature of politics that in too many cases leaders are calculating what they say or do based on voting or supported in their localities. calculations in their countries i think what we do find more and more is that leaders know the difference between what is right and what is wrong and the importance is to get them to speak clearly about what they already know so your concerns for the rise of online anti-semitism happen hurrican never recorded quite a thing is to blame the media is it is it the media that's irresponsible or the legislators failed to protect the society you know this is a real challenge everywhere i think the last thing we want is to say somehow governments need to control media either. somehow prohibit wholesale this kind of expression but there really need needs to be concerted efforts to figure out how to
2:39 pm
control this kind of hatred that is spreading as you've identified particularly on the internet these days and that means engaging internet providers that means developing good practices that means of course working with media so they recognize the responsibilities they have here the fact that what is reported what is misreported can often have real consequences but i think the goal is to engage media the goal is to engage the companies that provide internet services to try and get them to be more responsible i think governments legislators need to do what they can to enforce at least where there are clear violations of existing laws but it's something that everyone needs to really be a partner in to address you know ultranationalist staged violent rallies just outside of kremlin recently what are your concerns for russia you know i think this
2:40 pm
was very troubling to to observe them and in fact we've so even as i'm here in moscow. here again i think it's a challenge for the government and for leadership these kinds of voices we see an openness of the room the real test the real measure is how you address that in the short term obviously it involves the growth of police put in the long term russia is there in the sense for it looks like america every heterogeneous multi cultural diverse society. it brings with it a lot of problems i think it also brings with it a lot of benefits it makes life much more i think enriching and full and a society that can embrace its. versity with full rights for everyone and respect for everyone is strengthened to me this is a long term challenge that russia faces i hope certainly there are people i meet
2:41 pm
