CIJR presents "The Two-State Mirage", with Prof. Frederick Krantz 

The Two-State Mirage: Why Biden's two-state solution is dangerous for Israel and the Middle East

The war of October 7th was the worst outbreak of Antisemitic murder since the Holocaust, threatening the Jewish state’s very existence. American, Western and Arab-world leaders continue to reiterate the “two state solution” mantra as the only way to resolve the current Hamas war. Why is U.S. President Joe Biden so eager to impose this long-failed idea – which Hamas itself rejects – on Israel?

Prof. Frederick Krantz, CIJR Director, explores the Middle East reality behind this destructive “solution”, and the Democrats’ internal political-electoral considerations driving the President's dangerous course. He also discusses the implications for Israel and the Jewish people worldwide.

CIJR presents ISRAEL, HAMAS IRAN, AND THE JEWISH WARS: The Global Battle to Save Western Values


The horror of Hamas' October 7 massacre of Israelis has created a line in the shifting sands of history. While the final consequences of Iran-backed Islamic terrorism against Israel remain unclear, the world that Israel, the West, and the world has known since Hamas’s 2007 Gaza takeover has changed forever.


Israel's war extends beyond Gaza to Iranian-backed Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Houthis in Yemen. U.S. President Joe Biden, despite some wobbling, has so far strongly backed Israel, warning China, Russia and (near-nuclear) Iran - “Don’t!”As antisemitic pro-Hamas mobs roil America’s campuses and cities, and the 2024 Presidential election looms, a global battle to save Western values is under way.


Professor of History Frederick Krantz, Founder and Director Emeritus of the Canadian Institute for Jewish Research (CIJR), offers observations on what the future - for Israel, the U.S, and the Western world - may hold.

CILR presents "Why is Contemporary Antisemitism So Sexy?" Part 1 of a Unique Psychological Analysis


CILR joins CAEF in bringing to you Part 1 - Antisemitism as Extremism: Background & Basics, presented by Dr. David Nussbaum, PhD., C. Psych., Chair of the Extremism and Terrorism Section of the Canadian Psychological Association, Senior Research Scholar with ISGAP.


Despite a concerted effort to counter the factual and logical distortions marshalled against the blight on humanity of antisemitism, the scope and intensity of antisemitism continues to grow. The first session of this two-part program will provide a definition of antisemitism from a psychological information processing context, and as a special case of extremism.


Antisemitism will be analyzed from the perspective of basic approaches to “truth” used by extremists of all stripes, looking at long-term consequences of factual and logical errors, different types of information processing systems and common “culturally adjusted” messages across different cultural envelopes through which antisemitism is delivered.

CILR presents "Why is Contemporary Antisemitism So Sexy?" Part 2 of a Unique Psychological Analysis


CILR joins CAEF in bringing to you Part 2 - Strategies for Counter-Messaging: Undermining the Three Enabling Envelopes, presented by Dr. David Nussbaum, PhD., C. Psych., Chair of the Extremism and Terrorism Section of the Canadian Psychological Association, Senior Research Scholar with ISGAP.


Despite a concerted effort to counter the factual and logical distortions marshalled against the blight on humanity of antisemitism, the scope and intensity of antisemitism continues to grow.


Part 2 shows how the basic strategies are translated effectively into many standard tactics tailored to particular situations, such as crises, and intended for specific target audiences.


The various tactics falling under different strategic categories identify the three contemporary existential threats faced by Israel, the Jewish People, and the Western World. Given this understanding, specific recommendations for strategic counter-messaging to undermine both the sanctioning cultural envelope and the derivative antisemitic slander are provided.

CIJR presents and is co-sponsored by CILR "Beyond The Conflict: Life in Judea and Samaria", with Ezra Ridgely 

Today, more than 500,000 Jews live in more than 200 towns, cities and communities in Judea and Samaria. The past six months has seen a dramatic and appalling surge in terror attacks on its residents.

CIJR presents "Israel and The World" featuring Professor Frederick Krantz


Israel, despite its strength as a military force and nuclear power, relies heavily on its ally, the U.S. How supportive is the Biden Administration of Israel today? Regionally, Iran is about to become a nuclear power. Globally, both the Ukraine-Russian war and an increasingly expanding China, pose real threats to Israel’s security. Could Israel be plunged into a larger emerging global conflict?

He has written numerous books and articles on European and Jewish history, antisemitism and the Holocaust.
