The “New Anti-Semitism” According to Andre Glucksmann as a Political Problem
AbstractIn its evolution, the anti–Semitism phenomenon implies several historical sequences, which can be distinguished after their ideological content: the religious anti–Semitism specific to the Mid Ages, the economical anti–Semitism of the modern age, the racial and nationalist anti–Semitism specific to the first half of the 20th century and the politically driven anti–Semitism which manifested itself in the post-war and contemporary period. In the given text, we analyze the vision of the contemporary French philosopher André Glucksmann (b. 1937) in regard to what was named the New anti–Semitism. This form of anti–Semitism is derived both from the left and right wing contemporary politics, from the radical Islamism as well as from the liberal Western society. Glucksmann can be attributed the merit for emphasizing how the different nationalist movements of anti - globalization, anti – Americanism and anti–Zionism can be at the same time masked forms of anti–Semitism, and how some normal critics regarding the politics of Israel as a country can easily degenerate into making them appear as some sort of evil entities.
