“A valuable work of sociological research in a highly topical area of great relevance. By embracing a de-essentializing perspective, Jikeli helps the reader to understand the phenomenon in its full scope and makes it a useful tool for policy makers, educators, religious scholars, social workers, and sociologists.” —Alejandro Baer, University of Minnesota

Antisemitism from Muslims has become a serious issue in Western Europe, although not often acknowledged as such. Looking for insights into the views and rationales of young Muslims toward Jews, Günther Jikeli and his colleagues interviewed Continue reading

Tel Aviv: Talk – Attitudes toward Jews Among Muslim Communities in France and Germany, Gunther Jikeli

Conference: Europe, Germany and Contemporary Antisemitism
March 15, 2015 at the Bnei Zion auditorium, Tel Aviv

During the last few years antisemitism is on the rise in Europe. Violent manifestations and physical assaults against Jewish citizens became commonplace. Even more significant, is the sharp rise of the public anti-Semitic discourse. It seems that it has become a ‘bon-ton’ to be anti-Semitic, sometimes camouflaged by sophisticated use of language. But, should contemporary antisemitism be considered as a ‘Jewish problem’ only? Or is it a reflection of inherent problems of today’s Europe? Continue reading

Resolution against Boycott and Discrimination of Israeli scholars and research institutions

Research Network 31 “Ethnic Relations, Racism and Antisemitism” of the European Sociological Association (ESA)

This resolution was passed unanimously by the Research Network board and conference participants at the mid-term meeting of the RN in Vienna, 5 September 2014.
“In view of recent calls for boycott of Israeli scholars and research institutions, Research Network 31 “Ethnic Relations, Racism and Antisemitism” of the European Sociological Association (ESA) calls on our colleagues in ESA and scholars around the world to oppose such boycotts and condemn this discriminatory practice which contributes to creating an antisemitic climate. Any such boycott violates academic freedom and discriminates against individuals and institutions on the basis of their national background.” Continue reading

Article: Moroccan Law Proposal suggests punishing contacts with Israel and Israelis with two to five years of imprisonment

Kim Robin Stoller (International Institute for Education and Research on Antisemitism) — download PDF

After World War II, there were more than 250 000 Jews living in Morocco. Most of them immigrated to Israel in the 1950s and 1960s, making the population from Morocco or with Moroccan descent the second largest in Israel. Today, a newly proposed law submitted by the majority of Moroccan parliamentarian groups asks for the punishment of contacts with Israel and Israelis with two to five years of imprisonment. Human rights activists from Morocco are condemning the proposal as “inhumane,” “unconstitutional” and “influenced by Nazi-tendencies” and are asking for help from the international community.
