Abstract

The meek public reaction to the antisemitic murder of Sarah Halimi is indicative of a public unwillingness to acknowledge the threat of Muslim antisemitism in France.

This is compared to the trial of Jewish historian Georges Bensoussan. This trial shows how the ever more frequent accusation of "islamophobia" is used to intimidate academic critics of Islam. The strategy is now known as "jihad by trial" because it is efficient in silencing criticism even though almost all trials end in acquittals - but the process as such is disruptive for the life and work of the accused.
