Abstract:

Present-day antisemitism is facilitated by the lapse of the post-Holocaust taboo on anti-Jewish racism. It is on the increase in France, but is neither widespread nor driven by powerful social or political groups. Some new elements in antisemitism are global, and some are local; e.g. the Jews in France are envied by immigrants as representatives of the establishment. Since antisemitism is fragmented, unity around this issue among different social or political movements is unlikely. To counter antisemitism, especially among Muslim immigrants, recommends reducing racism and social exclusion, promoting equality for Muslims, and helping schools deal with anti-Jewish words and deeds. Believes that changes in Jewish attitudes can also reduce antisemitism, including anti-Zionism, in the universities. Antisemitism should not be underestimated or overestimated, and the media should be less superficial and hasty in making generalizations, like those about Muslim antisemitism, which this study has shown to be much more restricted than commonly thought and amenable to reduction. also discusses old-style antisemitism among "pieds noirs" repatriates and in Alsace.
