    All the disgusting films about Jews that exist - those racist anti-Semitic conspiracy theories which had an underlying political motive in their creation, in particular I'm thinking about those originating in France in the late 18th century during the revolution, which resurfaced again in the early 19th century during Napoleon. These anti-Jewish conspiracy theories, which were pro-monarchy, pro-Catholic, and anti-Masonic, were recycled for anti-Napoleon propaganda to include anti-Jewish, and resurfaced again at the end of the 19th century in Germany, and again during the Dreyfuss affaire. In what way is this film any different to those historic examples of racist propaganda & scapegoating. In no way does this film benefit either Jews or Israel, except perhaps to increase personal insecurity both inside and outside Israel. It's time we stopped allowing ourselves to be manipulated in this way and spoke out more fiercely against these types of work.

For French teen studying in Israel, it's all about being a Jew among Jews

Arrivals / Departures: Anti-Semitism in France is certainly not the reason why this teen chose to come to Israel; an Israeli whose relatives perished in the Holocaust finds living in Berlin 'perfectly fine.'
