Günther Jikeli
book cover
“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

Op-Ed (Haaretz): ‘Spawn of Israel’: Erdogan’s anti-Semitic obsessions

The pro-Erdogan Islamist newspaper blaming the Jews for Turkey’s mining disaster is just the tip of the iceberg: The Turkish PM’s anti-Semitism is deeply rooted and is now spreading more widely in Turkey.

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.

1 July 2013

The international conference on “Boycotts – Past and Present” at the Pears Institute for the study of Antisemitism, held in London from 19 to 21 June, had, according to the Institute’s director David Feldman, in advance been accused of bias. The conference was seen as both Hasbara, which is advocacy of the Israeli state, and antisemitic treachery. Continue reading

Article: Günther Jikeli – Judaken’s poor response to the accusation of “Kosher stamps for post & anti-Zionism”

21 February 2013

The term “new Antisemitism” and differences and similarities between Anti-Zionism, antisemitism, and hatred against Israel have led to fierce debates among scholars. Instead of insulting each other and imagining themselves in a kind of “war”, Günther Jikeli argues, scholars would do better to look into the arguments and empirical evidence. Continue reading

New Book: Günther Jikeli; Joëlle Allouche-Benayoun – Perceptions of the Holocaust in Europe and Muslim Communities

G. Jikeli, J. Allouche-Benayoun (eds.), Perceptions of the Holocaust in Europe and Muslim Communities. Sources, Comparisons and Educational Challenges. Dordrecht; New York: Springer 2013.

The way people think about the Holocaust is changing. The particular nature of the transformation depends on people’s historical perspectives and how they position themselves and their nation or community vis-à-vis the tragedy. Understandably, European Muslims perceive the Holocaust as less central to their history than do other Europeans. Yet while the acknowledgment and commemoration of the horrors of the Holocaust are increasingly important in Europe, Holocaust denial and biased views on the Holocaust are widespread in European Muslims’ countries of origin. In this book, a number of distinguished scholars and educators of various backgrounds discuss views of the Holocaust, explore the backgrounds of biased perceptions but also highlight positive approaches and developments. Many of the contributions were written by people working in the field and reflecting on their experiences. Continue reading

Es gibt einen spezifisch muslimischen Antisemitismus in Europa. Dieser

  • kann sich in aggressiver Form äußern und ist eine Gefahr für Juden,

Article: Robin Stoller and Alejandro Baer – Antisemitism in Spain: A survey to deny a problem

Published in The Jerusalem Post, October 18, 2010

The results of a recent government-funded anti-Semitism poll in Spain proved to be an effort to address the phenomenon in the country by simply pretending it doesn’t exist.

On the eve of Rosh Hashana, Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos presented results of the first sociological study on anti-Semitism in Spain. “Public opinion in Spain is not anti- Semitic,” he declared.

Antisemitismo en España: Una encuesta para negar un problema

Por Robin Stoller y Alejandro Baer*

Published in: Revista Raíces Raíces 85 – año XXIV – Invierno de 2010-2011

En la víspera del año nuevo judío, el pasado 9 de septiembre, el Ministro de Asuntos Exteriores Miguel Angel Moratinos presentaba en rueda de prensa los resultados del primer estudio sociológico sobre antisemitismo en España. Según el Ministro Moratinos: “la opinión pública en España no es antisemita”. Los datos del estudio indican lo contrario y la Federacion de Comunidades Judías y el Movimiento contra la Intolerancia ve “resultados altamente preocupantes” (ver comunicado en http://observatorioantisemitismo.fcje.org/). Pero no solo los datos que no se han hecho públicos en la presentación a la prensa son preocupantes. El desarrollo del estudio, los métodos empleados, los resultados y su presentación transmiten una imagen lamentable de cómo se ha abordado en España el problema del antisemitismo. Continue reading
