Chapter Summary

Two political groups share the extreme right vote in Alsace. The Front national (FN ) is, as its name indicates, nationalist ('centralising and Jacobin', as they have no hesitation in saying) and anti-European. Above all, anti-Semitism is an integral part of rationales which focus on Islam and Muslims as the main preoccupation. The leaders of Alsace d'abord (AA) present a different image: a strong mobilisation on the question of the 'new anti-Semitism', a good command of the facts and the issues of the problem, an excellent knowledge of the terrain and a taste for debate and analysis. In France, Alsace presents the image of a region in which anti-Semitism does succeed in rising to the political level to some extent, which is rather exceptional. But this movement is limited. There is no rapprochement between the two extreme right formations, at least not in their strategy and explicit discourse.

Keywords: Alsace d'abord; anti-Semitic rationales; Front national; rapprochement
