Chaolin: A Senseless Death

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/chaolin-a-senseless-death/

French version follows the English. The life of Chaolin Zhang, an unassuming 49 year-old dressmaker and father of two, was stomped out on a sidewalk in Aubervilliers on the 12th of August, for no reason. One assault among so many, nothing out of the ordinary for the thugs that have been targeting Chinese people in the […]

Qu’est-ce qu’une caricature antisémite ? Essai d’explication historique et politique

https://isgap.org/flashpoint/quest-ce-quune-caricature-antisemite-essai-dexplication-historique-et-politique/

I. Caricature, antisémitisme, antisionisme: de quoi parle-t-on ? La caricature n’est pas une source documentaire parmi d’autres : dans un monde marqué avant tout par l’image, la caricature est devenue un des moyens de communication les plus populaires et les plus efficaces. Aujourd’hui comme hier, l’opinion publique est davantage conditionnée par l’image -de la caricature à la […]

Assessing the New Wave of Judeophobia in France

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 […]

The Paris Attacks, Antisemitism and the Elections

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, […]

How Not to Grieve for Victims of Terrorism: Judith Butler’s Hypocritical Response to the Paris Attacks

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

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 […]
