Jonah, don’t you think you should give the French some credit for developing modern mass antisemitism? You know how angry they get when they’re deprived of credit . . . by all means hammer away at the Germans, but we were taught in grad school — by some very smart professors — that the first real antisemitic movement in modern history was, uh, French. Think Herzl . . .
I totally agree with you, antisemitism doesn’t respect political boundaries. Or national ones.
