Chapter Summary

A new development in the anti-Semitism of our time concerns the public sphere, constantly stirred up by various issues which are the makings of new forms of political and intellectual life. Negationism consists in denying the intention of the Third Reich to destroy the European Jews, the use of the gas chambers to this end and the systematic annihilation of this group of human beings. Apart from the ideological and political organisation of the spread of negationism, in the 2000s, a number of events were to point to support for an older, traditional type of anti-Semitism, nationalist even religious and anti-Jewish in nature. The anti-Semitism which may perpetuate an anti-Zionism based on identification with the Palestinian cause is not the only phenomenon at issue. When it adds momentum to a possibly warlike and terrorist militant Islamism, it poses a new challenge to extreme left militants and organisations or comparable groups.

Keywords: anti-Semitism; anti-Zionism; European Jews; negationism; Third Reich
