Summary
  • "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."--BOOK JACKET.
