Multiculturalism, Globalization and Antisemitism: The British Case

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review

Abstract

British Jews have largely benefited from multiculturalism. Although diversity has won new respect for Jewish traditions, divisiveness has resulted in new conflicts between Jews and Muslims, despite some common causes (for example, regarding ritual slaughter and autopsies). There are also tensions between Jews and sectors of the host society seeking the consolidation of national identity. The danger of antisemitism, however, is not coming from the workplace, the streets, or the brick through the window, but from public discourse, and in particular from a hate campaign against Israel in the media.
