Chapter Summary

The American and Jew are now one and the same thing. "This over-simplification captures the imagination of many young people of North African descent", said the assistant bishop in Lille. Television plays a role in building up images of Jews. When listening to young people in working-class areas, it would appear that there is a recurrence of references to and commentary on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. On the whole, in Roubaix and even in the North, the prevailing climate of opinion is pro-Palestinian both at political and interest group level. In theory, a distinction is made between hatred for the Jews and support for the Palestinian cause, but, in practice, it is not uncommon for the two to be confused. Those who maintain the association benefit from a favourable climate of opinion because a number of personalities in the region prioritise the defence of the Palestinian people at all costs.

Keywords: imagination; Israeli-Palestinian conflict; Jews; North African descent; Roubaix
