Why the Jews? The Reason for Antisemitism

The very word Jew continues to arouse passions as does no other religious, national, or political name. Why have Jews been the object of the most enduring and universal hatred in history? Why did Hitler consider murdering Jews more important than winning World War II? Why has the United Nations devoted more time to tiny Israel than to any other nation on earth?

Prager and Telushkin attempt to uncover and understand the roots of antisemitism — from the ancient world to the Holocaust to the current crisis in the Middle East. This new edition of Why the Jews? offers new insights and unparalleled perspectives on some of the most recent, pressing developments in the contemporary world, including:

  • The pervasive anti-Zionism/antisemitism on campus.
  • The US-Israel link (in the minds of antisemites)
  • The rise of antisemitism in Europe
  • The replicating of Nazi antisemitism in the Arab world

A “must read” for anyone who seeks to understand the unique role of the Jews in human history.


Dennis Prager and Joseph Telushkin
