No Anger Excited

The most effective and disturbing argument Goldhagen musters in this new book is that the resurgence of rhetorically and sometimes physically violent anti-­Semitism over the past dozen years or so is shocking in part because it does not seem to shock. Horrific accusations leveled against Jews across the Middle East and in Europe fail to excite the anger or disbelief of the non-­Jewish masses and non-Jewish elites alike.
