Chapter Summary

With Maria Poumier, links are formed between the problem of struggles in Latin America, anti-imperialism and anti-Zionism. In the Université de Paris-VIII, a latent anti-Semitism consumes some students and is the driving force behind very small active minorities. It does not grow into large-scale action and does not affect the vast majority of students. It does nevertheless find a niche for itself in so far as the Jews, identified both with Israel and with access to power and money, are considered as not needing in the slightest to be defended. The criminal nature of anti-Semitism is then evacuated and, within a small politicised world, identification with the Palestinian cause is interpreted in a radical manner by players whose modes of organisation, as we have seen with the Union générale des étudiants tunisiens (UGET), appear to be more closely related to national origin than part of a mobilisation for social ends.

Keywords: anti-imperialism; anti-Zionism; Israel; Jews; latent anti-Semitism; Latin America; Maria Poumier; Union générale des étudiants tunisiens (UGET); Université de Paris-VIII
