Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the evolution of the Jews in France since the end of World War II. The end of the 1960s was a period of general social change which the French Jews did not escape: the idea of progress was challenged, universalist concepts were questioned, the nation-state was criticised, and all these ideas which contributed to weakening the French republican model as a whole. Everything converged in the invention of a new model, in which French Jews became a paradigm of French-style multiculturalism. The radicals and extremists who advocate that all Jews support the policies of Israel unconditionally are equating the Jews in the Diaspora with the Jews in Israel which is extremely dangerous because it provokes an anti-Semitic discourse which is based on the same equation.

Keywords: anti-Semitic discourse; Diaspora; extremists; French Jews; French republican model; Israel; multiculturalism; radicals
