Watch the Huffington Post UK's political director Mehdi Hasan, who is Muslim, and Guardian executive editor Jonathan Freedland, who is Jewish, discuss rising Islamophobia and anti-Semitism, Israel's Gaza war and the need for greater self-criticism and dissenting voices within the UK's Jewish and Muslim communities.

Their conversation was part of a Guardian Live event, held in partnership with the Huffington Post UK, on Monday 15 September at the Royal Institution in London, and chaired by the BBC's Anita Anand.
