“The New-German Anti-Semite – Do Jews today belong to Germany?” is the name of a book published recently in Germany. The author, Arye Sharuz Shalicar, is now on a promotional tour for the book all over Germany. The German government is paying for the campaign, or more accurately the “Commissioner for Jewish Life in Germany and the Fight Against Anti-Semitism.” This position with the rather strange name – after all, the real Jewish life in Germany, which was so diverse in days past, was brutally eradicated over 70 years ago – came into existence a little over a year ago. And this is how I chanced, during a visit to Berlin, to taste a bit of what today masquerades as “Jewish life” here under the auspices of the open and covert intervention of the Israeli government and its institutions. I attended a launch for the book, which was held at Humboldt University of Berlin.
