Mimesis, Antisemitism, Terror

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/mimesis-antisemitism-terror/

How can we explain the virulence and brutality—the gratuitous barbarity—of Islamist mass-murder terrorism? More than ideology, more than neurosis, we should consider mimesis, rivalry and mimetic contagion. Some ten days before the attacks in Paris last November, the immortel René Girard died, bringing to an end a long and uniquely productive intellectual career. For decades, […]

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/the-paris-attacks-antisemitism-and-the-elections/

The mass terror attacks which took place in Paris and the nearby town of Saint-Denis on the evening of November 13 did not specifically target Jewish individuals, property or events (in fact, the attacks occurred on the Jewish Sabbath in the French capital). Although at least two Jews were killed at the Bataclan concert hall, […]

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/how-not-to-grieve-for-victims-of-terrorism-judith-butlers-hypocritical-response-to-the-paris-attacks/

Quit whining, Paris. It’s not all just about you. Consider the Palestinians. I am paraphrasing, of course. Here are Butler’s original […]

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/antisemitism-made-in-france-2000-2015/

(English translation) For several years within the contentious field of antisemitism, we have seen a routine emerge of obscene words, selective outrage and blatant antisemitic assaults. But this violence forms part of a more general pattern, starting from the time of the second Intifada (2000) when anti-Jewish violence swept almost simultaneously across France and throughout […]

Escalation of Palestinian violence

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/escalation-of-palestinian-violence/

The recent escalation in Palestinian violence was brought about by events in early September 2015, when tensions regarding the Temple Mount (Al-Aqsa Mosque) rose between Israelis and Palestinians. Violence broke out during the Jewish High Holidays, that saw an increase in Jewish worshippers to the Western Wall and the Temple Mount, as well as an […]
