Bachner, Henrik (2002). Stephen Roth Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism and Racism.
The article explores evidence of antisemitic discourse in articles that appeared in the Swedish media during the 1982 Lebanon War. It explores how traditional Christian anti-Jewish themes and age-old antisemitic stereotypes of power, wealth and conspiracy were evident in the language used to comment on Israel and her actions at the time.
Joel Kotek (2002). Stephen Roth Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism and Racism.
The negative images of Jews that sometimes appear in Belgian anti-Zionist propaganda are explored. Incorporations of the ‘capitalist Jew’ motif and of the ritual murder myth are highlighted. Holocaust inversion against Israel, and the association of antisemitism and anti-Zionism with the far left and anti-globalisation movements are considered.
Robin Shepherd (2005). Antisemitism and Xenophobia Today (AXT).
Taking the primary example of Poland, the author balances strong concerns about traditional antisemitism with the relative absence of virulent anti-Zionism in Central and Eastern Europe. Contrasting this with the situation in Western Europe, the causes of, and relationship between contemporary antisemitism and anti-Zionism are considered. Issues such as political ideology, pro and anti-Americanism and post-colonial guilt are raised.
Alvin H. Rosenfeld (2003). American Jewish Committee (AJC).
The author traces the roots, growth, and meaning of these two antipathies and shows how they converge and attract similar devotees, both throughout the Muslim world and in Europe, particularly in Germany and France, the focus of his attention.
Barry Rubin (2007). Covenant.
To better understand contemporary hatred of America and Israel, the Jewish state, the author discusses five themes: claims that America and the Jews represent the same thing, that Jews control America, the manipulation of hatred for political advantage, the systematic misrepresentation of policy, and the structural problems of the United States and Israel as democracies facing dictatorial enemies.
Bernard Lazare (1894). Reproduced by Fordham University.
This key text provides an in depth study of antisemitism through the ages. Whilst it has been criticised for its approach to the causes of antisemitism, the book provides an in depth analysis of the key periods of antisemitism in history. The complete book is available online.
Max Geltman (1977). Midstream. Reproduced by Paul Bogdanor.
The author delves into the question of the antisemitism of socialist (and anarchist) theorists in nineteenth and early twentieth century Europe. The writings and public statements of figures including Marx, Engels, Proudhon, Leroux and Fourier are considered and the centrality of the oft repeated theme of the ‘Jew-usurer’ highlighted.
Steven Windmueller (2005). Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA).
The author suggests that contemporary antisemitism presents a unique challenge because of its emphasis on public campaigns to de-legitimise Israel, the Jewish people, and Judaism. He considers why and how initiatives by American Jewish institutions in the European arena have at times prompted criticisms from local Jewish communities, and presents the key elements for successful measures and organisational discipline in the countering of antisemitism.
European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (2000). Council of Europe.
The policy paper recommends legal and self-regulatory steps to combat racist, xenophobic and antisemitic material that appears on the internet. The relevance of pre existing legal frameworks for combating racism within member states is highlighted, as is the importance of improving the methods utilised by law enforcement officers within and between member states.
