The anti-Judaism of early Islam and the modern antisemitism of Europe.

Dear colleagues and friends,

Islamic antisemitism is a specific kind of Jew-hatred based on a fusion of two sources: The anti-Judaism of early Islam and the modern antisemitism of Europe.

My working paper on Islamic antisemitism: How it originated and spread About the meaning of the booklet „Islam and Jewry“ and the Bludan Congress of September 1937 summarizes the preliminary findings of my research into the origins of this particularly aggressive and, unfortunately, still widespread form of Jew-hatred.

This is the preprint version of an article that will appear in the forthcoming issue of the journal Antisemitism Studies (Antisemitism Studies 2.2., October 2018), published by Indiana University Press and edited by Catherine Chatterley, Canadian Institute for the Study of Antisemitism (CISA), University of Manitoba (www.antisemitismstudies.com/index.html).

You’ll find it here:

With best regards,

Matthias Küntzel
