O Novo Anti-Semitismo
Recomendo a leitura
deste artigo da Foreign Policy sobre o ressurgimento do anti-semitismo e o seu alastramento a movimentos aparentemente isuspeitos.
The time frame for this resurgence of judeophobia corresponds with the intensification of international links that took place in the 1990s. "People are losing their compass", observes Dan Dinar, a historian at Hebrew University. "A worldwide stock market, a new form of money, no borders. Concepts like country, nationality, everything is in doubt. They are looking for the ones who are guilty for this new situation and they find the Jews". The backlash against globalization unites all elements of the political spectrum through a common cause, and in doing so it sometimes fosters a common enemy?what French Jewish leader Roger Cukierman calls an anti-Semitic "brown-green-red alliance" among ultra-nationalists, the populist green movement, and communism?s fellow travelers. The new anti-Semitism is unique because it seamlessly stitches together the various forms of old anti-Semitism: The far right?s conception of the Jew (a fifth column, loyal only to itself, undermining economic sovereignty and national culture), the far left?s conception of the Jew (capitalists and usurers, controlling the international economic system), and the ?blood libel? Jew (murderers and modern-day colonial oppressors).
