The war against the Jewish people didn't stop with Hitler's defeat, argues the author; its main proponents today are the U.S.S.R, "a no less powerful source of antisemitism" than the Nazis were prior to World War II, and Arab and Third World anti-Semites in the Soviet Union's client states. This startling thesis is closely argued in a disturbing and important study written by a teacher at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Wistrich maintains that Stalin's fantasy of a world cabal of Jewish financiers bent on destroying socialism has been supplanted by specious Soviet attempts to link the Star of David and the swastika, to equate "imperialistic" Zionism with Nazism. In Islamic nations, he charges, political radicals are as intransigent as conservative fundamentalists in their refusal to start a dialogue with Israel. Wistrich traces Hitler's hatred of Jews back to the early 1920s, when he planned the genocide of Eastern European Jewry. Those alarmed about modern anti-Semitism should read this book.
