The antisemitic myth of Jewish control is alive and kicking – Hammerman doesn’t seem to understand that the audience simply disagreed with both her style and the content of her statements. | The Jerusalem Post
The hallucination of an evil Jewish conspiracy that controls not only world politics, but also cultural affairs and even dictates opinion is one of the most quintessential antisemitic stereotypes. And as if the Holocaust would have never happened, its popularity is unbroken until the present day. A recent report in the German weekly Der Spiegel and an op-ed in last Sunday’s Haaretz by Ilana Hammerman (which had already been published a week earlier in Hebrew) are the most recent expressions of the delusional idea that some kind of conspiracy pulls the strings behind the scene to manipulate society on behalf of Israel and the Jews.
