Indiana University has launched a new “Institute for the Study of Contemporary Anti-Semitism.” It is the second such institution of its kind in the United States. Yale University has an “Institute for the Interdisciplinary Study of Anti-Semitism.” There are three other major research institutes abroad; two in Israel, one in Germany.
Undoubtedly, the Indiana branch won’t come any closer to discerning the true cause of anti-Semitism. The academics there will start from the premise that Gentiles, unlike Jews, don’t have ethnic interests and legitimate grievances. Any expression of Gentile self interest (such as opposing open borders) will be pathologized as a cocktail of irrational paranoia, conspiracy theories, racism, nativism, sexual repression, anti-Semitism and the like.
The right questions won’t be asked: why do we have academic institutions dedicated to the exploration of anti-Semitism, but not Europhobia; why are Jews resented, but not Eskimos; why is anti-Semitism socially unacceptable in the mainstream, but Europhobia encouraged; why the a priori assumption of Jewish innocence; why is ethnic and racial consciousness verboten among Whites, but acceptable in the Jewish community; why is a border fence a proper remedy for Israel, but not for the United States; why does the U.S. State Department fight anti-Semitism, but not far more prevelant racial prejudice against Whites?
