Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the criminogenic nature of contemporary antisemitism, which certain people, including people of African descent, have unfortunately adopted, through mimicry or imitation, as a result of ignorance or political calculation. It forms the final part of a larger work entitled "Africa and Antisemitism: From Indifference to Temptation and Antisemitic Speech". Many intellectuals who cannot be suspected of antisemitism reject the equation of anti-Zionism with antisemitism. In reality, anti-Zionism has the same target as antisemitism, namely the Jews. The era of globalization that characterizes the 21st century is a period of homogenization of modern economic, political, and cultural habitus. Antisemitism is not simply a manifestation of hostility or Judeophobia. As Levinas writes, antisemitism "is the repugnance felt towards the unknown of the other's psyche, the mystery of his interiority". Antisemitism represents a stagnation in the development of world history. Antisemitism metamorphoses without ever changing its nature.
