Denis MacShane, a British MP and chairman of the All-Party Commission of Enquiry into Anti-semitism, argues that we are now facing an ideological assault based on hatred of Jews that threatens universal values, world peace, and even attempts to fight poverty and environmental change. MacShane considers how anti-Semitism has become a linking mechanism between different extremisms; how it operates in national party politics and in the European Parliament; and how Holocaust denial has hardened into an organized ideological position. Globalising Hatred is both a cri de coeur for a new tolerance and an attempt to throw light on a form of hatred that mobilizes politics across many continents.
