Germans and the Jews

John Rosenthal, writing in World Politics Watch, debunks a recent study from Germany's prestigious Bertelsmann Foundation claiming that German antisemitism is on the decline. The picture he paints is a disturbing one, "secondary" antisemitism, provoked by apparent German popular resentment against the burden they feel they have been forced to bear or the Holocaust.   A backlash, if you will, or as Rosenthal puts it,

...a resentment of Jews not in spite of the Holocaust, but rather precisely because of it.
This is a very worthwhile read for those who wish to know more about the reality of Germany today. Rosenthal marshalls plenty of data to make his case.
