European anti-Semitism


Manfred Gerstenfeld provides a lengthy and thoughtful analysis of European anti—Semitism, its old varieties and its newer fashions. Much of the new anti—Semitism is ostensibly linked to anti—Israel hatred, but Gerstenfeld convincingly argues that its roots are older, deeper, and more pervasive, and would survive with or without the Jewish state, just as it preceded it. 

Much of the Arab world's  anti—Semitism is a European import, with both medieveal linkages and modern anti—Israel hatred.
