Today's antisemitism is difficult to recognize because it does not
come dressed in a Nazi uniform and it does not openly proclaim its
hatred or fear of Jews. This book looks at the kind of antisemitism
which is tolerated or which goes unacknowledged in apparently
democratic spaces: trade unions, churches, left-wing and liberal
politics, social gatherings of the chattering classes and the
seminars and journals of radical intellectuals. It analyses how
criticism of Israel can mushroom into antisemitism and it looks at
struggles over how antisemitism is defined. It focuses on ways in
which those who raise the issue of antisemitism are often accused
of doing so in bad faith in an attempt to silence or smear.
Hostility to Israel has become a signifier of identity, connected
to opposition to imperialism, neo-liberalism and global capitalism;
the 'community of the good' takes on toxic ways of imagining most
living Jewish people.
