Chapter Summary

This chapter makes two arguments. First, there is a huge gap between public discourse and social realities. While Spanish media and politicians often express a hostility towards Israel that borders on anti-Semitism, this has not hindered the development of Jewish life in Spain. Nowadays Jews, both individually and collectively, enjoy a richer and more prosperous life in Spain than at any time during the past century. Second, and even more important, Spanish attitudes towards Jews must be viewed within two wider contexts: recent demographic changes and the struggle to reshape Spanish collective identities, both of which require a comparative approach. Accordingly, we should analyze Spanish society's attitudes towards the three traditional others in Spain: Jews, Muslims and Latin Americans—a departure from Jewish historians' traditional tendency to look at Jews as the prime victims in any given context.

Keywords:Jews; Latin Americans; Muslims; Spain
