Chapter Summary

This chapter brings us to 'global' anti-Semitism. Globalisation operates in two complementary ways. On the one hand, the oppression which the Palestinians experience is symbolic of that of the 'Arab' or the 'Muslim' dominated and oppressed by the Jews, which is something new in history since it is linked to the creation of the State of Israel. On the other hand, the Jews appear as being themselves globalised, associated with an arrogant and anti-Muslim America, and therefore domineering and oppressive at international level. According to this view, a worldwide relationship of domination is relayed by the imaginary humiliation to which the Jews subject the Arabs and, more globally, the Muslims, by proxy. Henceforth the violence of Muslims towards Jews becomes legitimate, a response to the humiliation experienced in the banlieues, magnified by television which shows Israeli tanks firing on young Palestinians armed with stones.

Keywords: Arabs; global anti-Semitism; Jews oppression; Muslims; Palestinians oppression
