Chapter Summary

Two aspects, which are often combined, come up again and again. On the one hand, the Jews in Sarcelles are accused of being community oriented and, on the other, of 'controlling the town'. For some of the inhabitants of Sarcelles, the Jews could well be the embodiment of a traditional version of evil. Some people are almost apologetic for this anti-Semitism, which for them is part of the culture. The Jews are said to be responsible for the resentment which targets them which is the outcome of their own intolerance, described here as a community oriented lifestyle. The Jews in Sarcelles are perceived as a community which has power and uses it in a selfish, to some extent, racist manner, and, above all, as self-centred. The themes tend to relate more to a local version of anti-Semitism, bearing little relation to the traditional and general categories of the phenomenon.

Keywords: anti-Semitism; community oriented lifestyle; Jews; Sarcelles
