https://isgap.org/flashpoint/assessing-the-new-wave-of-judeophobia-in-france/

Today, few commentators deny the new wave of hatred against Jews in France. Indeed, many increasingly acknowledge that this is a global phenomenon. Assessing antisemitism in France is not only important for an evaluation of the threat for Jewish communities, but for French society in general. Moreover, the French case, in which this new wave […]

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/europe-the-vatican-and-the-normalization-of-antisemitism/

On Sunday January 17th, 2016 Pope Francis made his first visit as Pontiff to the Great Synagogue in Rome. This was a significant event, the third such visit by a Pontiff to the Great Synagogue. Importantly, it followed on the heels of the October commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Nostra Aetate, where the Pontiff […]

Angry Germans, Inept Leaders

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/angry-germans-inept-leaders/

German topics rarely make it into American cable news. Recently, however, a leading TV show put Chancellor Angela Merkel into the category of “villain of the week.” The reason given: she allowed an invasion of mostly young men from Arab and North African lands into Germany.

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, […]

Three days after the obscene terror attacks of November 13, 2015, in Paris, Judith Butler—a leading BDS philosopher, who has called for an end to Jewish sovereignty and self-determination in Israel[1]—had this to say. Quit whining, Paris. It’s not all just about you. Consider the Palestinians. I am paraphrasing, of course. Here are Butler’s original […]

Antisemitism, Made in France (2000-2015)

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 […]

https://isgap.org/post/2014/05/the-new-rainbow-antisemitism-time-to-act/

By Dr. Joël Kotek May 26, 2014 – The Jews remain the main target of hate speech and physical violence in Belgium. In our country, the myths – not the facts – are stubbornly maintained. As regards racism, our “recognized experts” on the extreme right have been announcing the death of antisemitism for almost ten […]
