Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter provides an overview of Universities in the book The Lure of Anti-Semitism: Hatred of Jews in Present-Day France. In the past, anti-Semitism in the universities was a speciality of the extreme right. Those inspired by the extreme left or ultra-left include a criticism of Israeli policy which sometimes veers towards a thinly concealed anti-Semitism or the borderline. Two potential sources of anti-Semitism are the growing strength of a leftist or third-worldist support for the Palestinian cause including an extreme form of anti-Zionism. Islam, criticism of the State of Israel and extreme left ideologies do not automatically mean anti-Semitic fever, and exposures which challenge them may well themselves go too far, over interpreting positions and actions which call for terms other than anti-Semitism.

Keywords: anti-Semitism; Islam; Israeli policy; Jews; leftist; universities
