Israelophobia and the West: The Hijacking of Civil Discourse on Israel... - by Dan Diker

by Dan Diker

Israelophobia in Iran, the Arab states, and other Muslim-majority countries requires a separate, exhaustive study. This volume evaluates the intensifying anti-Semitism against diaspora Jewry in Western countries and the converging rhetorical assaults on sovereign Jews in Israel condemning them and their nation-state as 'Nazi, apartheid, racist, genocidal, war criminal, illegal, illegitimate, colonialist, and anachronistic.' This invective has been characterized and justified as legitimate political criticism of Israel in mainstream Western discourse.
