Summary
  • "Although our government hardly acknowledges the fact, and fails to orient its policies accordingly," begins Gabriel Schoenfeld in this deeply disquieting book, "the United States is now locked in a conflict with adversaries for whom hatred of Jews lies at the ideological core of their beliefs." To anyone who has even a modest acquaintance with current events, it is clear that the Muslim world today is the epicenter of a particularly virulent brand of anti-Semitic hatred. But anti-Semitism has also reawakened dramatically in Europe, where it was long thought to be completely dormant, if not entirely extinct. And as Schoenfeld demonstrates, it is also making unprecedented headway in the United States, a country where it has never before found truly fertile soil
  • The Return of Anti-Semitism traces the confluence of several lethal currents: the infusion of Judeophobia into Islamic fundamentalism; the rise of terrorist movements (including al-Qaeda) that are motivated in large measure by a pathological hatred of Jews; the deliberate and well-financed export of anti-Semitism from the Muslim world into Europe and from there into the United States; and the rebirth of older anti-Semitic traditions in the West that were thought to have ended along with Nazism
  • Schoenfeld shows that the most vicious ideas about Jews today are voiced not by the downtrodden and disenfranchised fringe elements of society, but by some of its most highly educated and "progressive" segments. This is true in the Islamic world, and even truer in the West. One is now less likely to find anti-Semites in beer halls and trailer parks than among the elite media and in faculty lounges. And while yesterday's anti-Semitism surfaced during periods of economic and political stress, its alarming return comes at a time when the Western democracies are relatively secure and free from the social turmoil that abetted the rise of fascism. An old disease -- one that many assumed to be permanetly eradicated -- has reappeared in our world. The Return of Anti-Semitism is a profound analysis of a great and growing danger
