Chapter Summary

The concept of anti-Semitism defines the Jews as a race (Semitic) whereas the concept of anti-Judaism defines them as a religion. The term Judeophobia itself is recent and dates from the same period as anti-Semitism. Since the end of the Cold War, the theme of globalisation has inevitably emerged in describing international rationales which make light of frontiers and states, particularly in the economic sphere. These principles have an impact on anti-Semitism which in turn has become in its own way a 'global' phenomenon. The changes which are specific to French society, its institutions and the French idea of the nation undoubtedly have a significant impact on the recent renewal of anti-Semitism in this country, but the evolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict or the consequences of the rise of Islamist terrorism also play a role.

Keywords: anti-Judaism; anti-Semitism; globalisation; Israeli-Palestinian conflict; Judeophobia; Semitic
