Reflections On Anti-Semitism
Since the inception of the ‘War on Terror’, Israel has become increasingly important to Western imperial strategy and ever more aggressive in its policies towards the Palestinians. A key ideological weapon in this development is the cynical and unjustified accusation of ‘anti-Semitism’ to silence protest and dissent. For historical reasons, this tactic has been deployed most forcefully in France, and in the first of the two ...

In the unconditional covenants to Israel, God guarantees that the Jew will ...

These questions are both universal and particular.

The Holocaust, the Church, and the Law of Unintended Consequences: How Christian Anti-Judaism Spawned Nazi ...
Anthony J. Sciolino
The image of Jews as "God-killers" and their refusal to convert to Christianity has fueled a long tradition of Christian intolerance, hatred, and violence. It is no surprise, then, that when Adolf Hitler advocated the elimination of Jews, he found willing allies within the Catholic Church and Christianity itself. In this study, author Anthony J. Sciolino, himself a Catholic, cuts into the heart of why the Catholic Church and Christianity as a ...

Hollywood and Anti-Semitism: A Cultural History up to World War II (Cambridge Studies in the History of Mass ...
Steven Alan Carr
Cambridge University Press
American Jews have a powerful cultural narrative that seemingly speaks on their behalf. According to this narrative, Eastern European Jewish immigrants built the film industry in the first decade of this century and dominated it by the second. As opposed to determining a particularly Jewish vision of America, Steven Alan Carr argues that this way of looking at Jews in Hollywood emanates from a particularly American vision of Jews. Like the ...

The Resurgence of Anti-Semitism: Jews, Israel, and Liberal Opinion (Philosophy and the Global Context)

Recently, Jewish voices have begun to warn against a 'new anti-Semitism' fueled by moral concerns about Israel. Opponents have retorted that opposition to 'Zionism' is by no means anti-Semitic. This book, by a non-Jewish analytic philosopher, assesses the relative merits of these opposed views and offers a detailed examination of the moral and intellectual credentials of the widespread current of opinion whose growth underlies both.

Hatemail: Anti-Semitism on Picture Postcards
Mr. Salo Aizenberg
The Jewish Publication Society
Today e-mail, Facebook, and Twitter are sometimes used to spread hateful messages and slurs masking as humor. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries postcards served this purpose. The images collected in this volume make it painfully clear that anti-Semitic propaganda did not simply begin with the Nazis. Nor was it the sole province of politicians, journalists, and rabble-rousers. One of the most virulent forms of anti-Semitism ...
