At Tablet, French writer Marc Weitzmann explains what is behind the attack at the Jewish Museum in Brussels on Saturday that killed a visiting Israeli couple, a French volunteer at the museum, and a Belgian museum employee. Weitzmann is a well-known novelist, literary critic, screenwriter, and polemicist who has alienated many of his Parisian colleagues with his support for Israel, and previously the U.S.-led war in Iraq. His valuable article here lays bare the roots of Europe’s new anti-Semitism, establishing a genealogy of the massacre beginning with Dieudonné M’Bala M’bala, “the notorious anti-Semitic French comedian.”
