Antisemitism

Historic antisemitism has primarily been a response to exaggerated fears of Jewish power and influence manipulating key events. Contemporary antisemitism is a repackaging of historic tropes. Antisemites have adapted conspiracy theories of the blood libel as well as Jewish influence in economic and governmental affairs to fit new circumstances, such as the accusation that Jews are responsible for spreading COVID-19, just as Jews were accused of spreading the plague a millennium ago.
