In a one-of-a-kind event, the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement (CAM) and the American Sephardi Federation (ASF) brought together a unique global conversation with interfaith and political leaders from around world engaged in the fight against anti-Semitism. The inspiring messages shared by these multi-faith leaders have been a wake up call that religious hatred as we know is not a reality that should be accepted as fact and that a different future for Jews and Muslims can be achieved.

During this historic live studio ceremony, Secretary General of the Muslim World League, Sheikh Dr. Mohammed Al-Issa became the first-ever recipient of CAM and ASF’s annual Combat Anti-Semitism Award, bestowed upon Muslim leaders engaged in the fight against Anti-Semitism. Speaking from Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Dr. Al-Issa was recognized for uniting people of all faiths and publicly denouncing Holocaust denial, acts of anti-Semitism, and religious extremism. A diverse panel of leaders spanning the globe, helped amplify Sheikh Al-Issa’s crucial message by praising his efforts and offering insights on how to defeat anti-Semitism and religious intolerance.
The Combat Anti-Semitism Movement (CAM) is a non-partisan, global grassroots movement of individuals and organizations, across all religions and faiths, united to combat anti-Semitism. Our unique platform creates partnerships throughout the world, strategically implementing new and creative solutions to combat the world’s oldest hatred.
CAM recognizes that anti-Semitism can only be defeated by working together. Through building warm and genuine relationships with Jewish communities around the world, Sheikh Dr. Mohammed Al-Issa has demonstrated that there is real hope in this fight. We hope that the Sheikh’s strong example encourages more Muslim voices to be heard against the hatred of Jews. Together we can build a more peaceful world for the next generation.
