It would be wrong to describe anti-semitism as resurgent: it never went away. But it has become more voluble – and, in certain circles, more respectable. This episode looks at how the ancient conspiracy theory of furtive Jewish power has been amplified and legitimised by social media and by modern populism around the world, on the left and the right. Andrew Mueller is joined by Deborah Lipstadt, Daniella Peled and David Aaronovitch.
