Jews Don’t Count

Book Launch with David Baddiel (video recording available)

Comedian David Baddiel’s book presents an eye-opening perspective on the debate around identity politics and discrimination. “Funny, important, contentious,” Max Czollek calls it.

This book is aimed at anyone with a conscience. Of course they oppose homophobia, racism, and other types of discrimination. And to be sure, they oppose all forms of antisemitism. But do Jews really count the same in contemporary debates?

In the UK, David Baddiel is famous as a political commentator and comedian. As a prominent Jewish voice, he asks tough questions: Are Jews really viewed as concretely threatened, just like other minorities? And if not – why not? In a brilliant combination of contemporary observations, personal experiences, and painful punchlines, this essay shatters comfortable certainties. We need to talk!
