Intent on shaking up the ultimate 'sacred cow' for Jews, Israeli director Yoav Shamir embarks on a provocative - and at times irreverent - quest to answer the question, "What is anti-Semitism today?" Does it remain a dangerous and immediate threat? Or is it a scare tactic used by right-wing Zionists to discredit their critics? Speaking with an array of people from across the political spectrum (including the head of the Anti-Defamation League and its fiercest critic, author Norman Finkelstein) and traveling to places like Auschwitz (alongside Israeli school kids) and Brooklyn (to explore reports of violence against Jews), Shamir discovers the realities of anti-Semitism today. His findings are shocking, enlightening and - surprisingly - often wryly funny.

Criticizing Israel with the only argument that you are a jew... that is so trendy.
The really new thing is now denying the antisemitism in the world....that is new and being Jew doesn't allow you to be so stupid and doing whatever just for looking for fame.

Synagogues are being bombed in France, Israel is boycotted in England, we find neo nazi in Germany. Need more news? read the European press Yoav

It is really a lousy, pointless collection of stupid interviews. I wouldn't call that a documentary.
