Antisemitism in Europe's Political Culture Today (I)
Real Madrid Basketball fans wrote some 18.000 antisemitic tweets and statements after Madrid lost a game against Maccabi Tel Aviv in the May 2014 Euroleague Final; CF Barcelona got 170 Million € from Qatar Foundation for Advertisement of Barça-T-Shirts. Qatar is a main supporter of Hamas, Islamism and antisemitism, and the host of leading Sunni Islamist thinker Yusuf al-Qaradawi.
The latest Gaza War in July 2014 showed 1) Islamist antisemitism like by Hamas is the most dangerous antisemitism in the 21st century so far, including the Iranian threat; 2) Europe has faced the most antisemitic rallies since 1945, including pro-Holocaust and pro-Hitler statements by German-Muslim and German-Arab agitators on the streets - same holds for the UK, France, and other European countries. Synagogues have been fire-bombed, Jews attacked and harassed.
