The new war between Israel and Hamas is at least as violent as the two previous ones. And it does not look like as if it will pave the way for a viable solution of the Near East conflict. But the repercussions in the Western world seem to be different now. A significant wave of anti-Jewish sentiments and actions is covering French, German, and other European cities.
In this blog, we are not interested in addressing differences between criticizing Israel versus blaming Jews. Rather, we want to look into the aggressiveness of anti-Jewish manifestations, often carried out by rather young people, both migrants and locals.
