In an Arab first, Bahraini institution joins with State Dept. to combat anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism By Ron Kampeas Octo am Global.

    "David Hirsh's new book "Contemporary Left Anti-Semitism" is an important contribution to the literature on the longest hatred. Coming at a time when there is appropriate attention to a resurgence of populist, classic right-wing anti-Semitism, Hirsh's work is a reminder that there is no ideological monopoly on anti-Semitism. In the real world, anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism don’t always go together. It’s easy to find anti-Semitism among people who, far from opposing Zionism, enthusiastically embrace it.

    Robert S. Wistrich (–) was the Neuburger Professor of European and Jewish history at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and director of the Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism. He is the author of numerous books, including, most recently, A Lethal Obsession: Anti-Semitism from Antiquity to the Global Jihad and Laboratory for World Destruction: Germans and. New antisemitism is the concept that a new form of antisemitism has developed in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, tending to manifest itself as opposition to Zionism and criticism of the Israeli concept is included in some definitions of antisemitism, such as the Working Definition of Antisemitism and the 3D test of antisemitism.

With its origins in a conference organized by the Institute of Jewish Affairs in London, this book asks if a common denominator can be found between the anti-Semitism that has existed through the ages and more contemporary forms of anti-Zionism.

The evolution of Soviet anti-Zionism: from principle to pragmatism / Zvi Gitelman --Soviet anti-Zionism: origins, forms and development / Theodore H. Friedgut --Left-wing anti-Zionism in Western societies / Robert S. Wistrich --The Perdition affair / David Cesarani --Islamic archetypes of the Jews: then and now / Ronald L.

Nettler --Islamic. In this intensely passionate and compelling book, the best-selling and prize-winning Jewish feminist author Dr Phyllis Chesler demonstrates how old-fashioned anti-Semitism -- now often seen in the form of anti-Zionism -- has become fashionable and even politically correct, and how this plague threatens the Jews of the world, Israel, America.

Israel Denial is the first book to offer detailed analyses of the work faculty members have published―individually and collectively―in support of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement; it contrasts their claims with options for promoting peace.

The faculty discussed here have devoted a significant part of their professional lives to delegitimizing the Jewish state. The first 80% of this book reviews contemporary anti-Semitism and places it in its historical and political contexts.

Even a cursory reading should alert anyone to the rising tide of anti-Judaism and Jew-hatred from the right and the left. Particularly useful is her properly conflating nearly all anti-Israel sentiment with anti-Semitism. Palestinian suffering and Arab "anti-Zionism" have helped to infect Europe with an old-new version of anti-Semitism in which Jews are rapacious, bloodsucking colonialists.

The theme is that Jews were rootless, imperialist invaders who came to Palestine to conquer the land by brute force, to expel or "cleanse" it of its natives.

But others see anti-Zionism as a fig leaf for old-fashioned anti-Semitism. Yes, of course it’s possible to be a staunch critic of Zionism and not to be anti-Semitic, but mostly you find that the two go together. Despite being the only functioning liberal democracy in the region, Israel is fanatically singled out for criticism by its enemies.

Know It. Criticism of Israel is not in and of itself antisemitic. But much of contemporary anti-Zionism, or the delegitimization of Israel and its supporters, draws on and perpetuates antisemitic tropes. 1 Dave Rich, The Left’s Jewish Problem: Jeremy Corbyn, Israel and Anti-Semitism (Biteback, ).

Anti-Zionism Is Not Antisemitism. By Modern antisemitism was born out of the tumultuous period of Eastern European and Russian history when feudalism was giving way to capitalist development. In Russia, antisemitic scapegoating deliberately organized and provoked by the czar was used as a means of dividing and weakening workers’ struggles.

Anti-Zionism is a prejudice against the Jewish movement for self-determination and the right of the Jewish people to a homeland in the State of Israel. It may be motivated by or result in anti-Semitism, or it may create a climate in which anti-Semitism becomes more acceptable.

The contemporary international human rights system and the existence of the State of Israel are twin legacies of the Holocaust. The failure of the human rights system to prevent attacks on Israel and the Jews is an aftershock of the Holocaust.

Anti-Zionism & Anti-Semitism Among his other books are Justice Delayed: Nazi War Criminals in. In his introduction, Levy distinguishes modern antisemitism from the ancient Western tradition of hatred. Representing this modern version are famous antisemites such as Richard Wagner, Henry Ford, and Adolf Hitler, as well as other frequently overlooked writings, many of them in Levy' s own translations.

What are origins of anti-Zionism. How has it changed following the Holocaust. How does it relate to contemporary antisemitism. References. Bauer, Yehuda, “Antisemitism and Anti-Zionism, New and Old,” in Robert S. Wistrich, ed., Anti-Zionism and Antisemitism in the Contemporary World (Basingstoke: Macmillan, ), pp.

- Pre-modern life had anti-Judaism aplenty but didn’t imagine Jews pulling mysterious levers of finance, race-mixing and revolution, or non-Jews as pitiable victims of Jew-driven social change. Anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism.

It’s anti-Semitism because it singles out the Jewish state for opprobrium, and with a prescription that anti-Zionists, with very few exceptions, apply to no other state. The anti-Zionism movement has attracted supporters and controversy, including within the broader Jewish community.

Critics of anti-Zionism have charged it is a cover for modern-day antisemitism, that it may be motivated by prejudices against Jewish people, or that it creates a climate where anti-semitism is viewed as acceptable. It’s true, of course, that anti-Zionism isn’t “the same” as common anti-Semitism.

Anti-Zionism is the most significant and consequential form of anti-Semitism that exists in the world today. HOW TO FIGHT ANTI-SEMITISM By Bari Weiss.

Bari Weiss has written what must be judged a brave book. That it must be is a badge of shame for the “progressive” America with which she identifies.

Oh, how the world has changed. Now a progressive has moved degrees to an anti-Zionist position. As one wag put it, the left is now the congenial home of anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism.“Anti-Zionism” is a loose term referring to criticism of the current policies of the Israeli state, and/or moral, ethical, or religious criticism of the idea of a Jewish nation-state.

There has been debate, criticism and opposition to Zionism within Jewish thought for as long as it has existed.All over the world, it is an alarming time to be Jewish – but conflating anti-Zionism with Jew-hatred is a tragic mistake by Peter Beinart Thu 7 Mar EST.
