Hitch on Antisemitism

Chris Hitchens has something in the new Atlantic about Antisemitism which can be summed up thusly:

Muslim Jew-hating is categorically the same as Christian Jew-hating in that it's a product of religious delusions, lunatic notions of theological superiority and the like. If Christians no longer hate Jews, its only because they've lost their religion. If Muslims hate Jews more now than they did 500 years ago its only (or mostly) because Islam has recently taken a hard turn to the right. The problem, at bottom, he says is religious faith.
