Chapter Summary

In Sarcelles, the criticisms made of Jews are aimed at real and not imaginary Jews; they refer to a visible community; in other words they are undoubtedly less a product of the imagination than those which we heard in Roubaix. Sarcelles is a town in the banlieue with urban violence and lack of security. The action of the Jewish community as a collective entity is not a bulwark against anti-Semitic feelings, hatred, hostility, resentment or jealousy. Moreover, it contributes to the globalisation of anti-Semitism rather than to the integration of the local rationale of hostility into a national rationale. The community oriented structure of the Jewish community and its political efficacy lend anti-Semitism both international and local dimensions which unite in a manner which, to all intents and purposes, bypasses the national level.

Keywords: anti-Semitism; criticisms; globalisation; Jewish community; Roubaix; Sarcelles
