Jeffrey Herf, The New Republic – It Will Not Go Away (H/T Yaacov Lozowick)
His review of Robert S. Wistrich’s 1200 page A Lethal Obsession: Anti-Semitism from Antiquity to the Global Jihad.

Wistrich gathers a massive amount of evidence to drive home the point that we are witnessing yet another significant chapter in the history of anti-Semitism, one that the conventional focus on the history of anti-Semitism before and during Nazism and the Holocaust does not address….
While the rallying cry of the old anti-Semitism was the attack on “world Jewry,” the core of anti-Semitism has been the attack on “international Zionism” and on the state of Israel.
