The New Anti-Semitism

Zuckerman, Mortimer B.
December 2004
UN Chronicle;Dec2004-Feb2005, Vol. 41 Issue 1, p34
The article focuses on the new anti-Semitism. The new anti-Semitism is not exclusively hostile to individual Jews or to Judaism. It is directed primarily against the Jewish collective, the modern State of Israel. Just as historic anti-Semitism has denied individual Jews the right to live as equal members of society, anti-Zionism denies the collective expression of the Jewish people, the State of Israel, the right to live as an equal member of the family of nations. Its policies are subject to criticism that in effect singles out Israel when others in similar circumstances would escape criticism.
