A First for a Muslim Country: Albania Adopts IHRA Definition of Anti-Semitism

The Albanian parliament last Thursday endorsed the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s working definition of anti-Semitism, making Albania the first majority-Muslim countries to adopt the definition.

The definition agreed by IHRA, (spelled out in full in the source below) an inter-governmental organization including 34 member countries, is an internationally agreed upon classification of anti-Semitism.

The decision comes six days before the Parliament of the Republic of Albania, in partnership with the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement and the Jewish Agency for Israel, hosts the first-ever Balkans Forum Against Anti-Semitism.
