KEMPF, Wilhelm, 2009. Israel-criticism and modern anti-Semitism

@techreport{Kempf2009Israe-11273, series={Diskussionsbeiträge der Projektgruppe Friedensforschung}, title={Israel-criticism and modern anti-Semitism}, year={2009}, number={62}, author={Kempf, Wilhelm} }

Kempf, Wilhelm Israel-criticism and modern anti-Semitism After the Third Reich was defeated, the expression of openly anti-Semitic attitudes was, to be sure, discredited in the German public, but anti-Semitism did not, however, disappear entirely. It was instead camouflaged in various ways, and even found socially and politically compatible expression in the criticism of Israeli Palestine policy.<br />Previous research in this area gives evidence that modern anti-Semitism represents a complex formation constituted from a variety of facets which range from classical (manifest) anti-Semitism via latent anti-Semitism, secondary anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism to the use of Israel-criticism as a medium where anti-Semitic attitudes can be expressed in a seemingly unsuspicious way. However, it can be assumed that not all criticism of the Israeli Palestine policy is motivated by anti-Semitic attitudes. It may be motivated by pacifist attitudes and/or human rights considerations as well.<br />The present paper discusses some theoretical and methodological issues of a forthcoming research project, which aims to investigate how the various facets of anti-Semitism can be measured, how they combine in individual attitude patterns, how these patterns are disseminated, and how criticism of Israel motivated by anti-Semitism can be differentiated from other forms of criticizing Israel. 2011-03-25T09:27:16Z Kempf, Wilhelm application/pdf eng 2011-03-25T09:27:16Z terms-of-use 2009
