“My take on the recent wave of antisemitism and attempts to downplay and excuse it. OpEd in English and German” – Gunther Jikeli

Dear friends and colleagues,

You might be interested in my take on the recent wave of antisemitism.

This OpEd was first published in the left-leaning German daily TAZ, https://taz.de/Antisemitismus-in-Deutschland/!5775880/

An English version with more links to surveys and sources was just published in The Algemeiner, https://www.algemeiner.com/2021/06/15/an-appeal-to-politicians-journalists-and-scholars-stop-excusing-jew-haters/

The Algemeiner is one of the best informed newspapers on antisemitic developments worldwide, thanks to outstanding journalists such as Ben Cohen.
