We may have long believed that anti-semitic ideologies are a thing of the past, that anti-Jewish prejudice has no place in the modern world. Yet the last few years have shown the surprising return of “anti-semitism” as a major issue of contention in the West. By drawing on observations from Germany, France, the UK and the US, I will discuss why anti-semitism is back on the agenda and how it informs political discourses. I will highlight the populist turn in the Western Left (represented by such figures as Jeremy Corbyn and Jean-Luc Mélenchon), which has gone hand in hand with an increasingly critical view of “Israel”. I will look into the transnational dimensions in this discourse and raise the question of how to relate to it.
