Anti-Semitism has revealed itself to be an ineradicable feature of life in France. In the 21st century, it is sustained and spread in the murky annals of cyberspace. This dissertation provides a theoretical and historical account of anti-Semitism, as well as an in-depth analysis of its current manifestation on the Internet. The author provides a case study of French hate sites, which finds that the majority of online anti-Semitism is spread by members of France’s extreme right. The case study also exposes several legal loopholes that the far right exploits in order to grow its cyber network. The findings make clear that France’s policy governing hate speech, censorship, and Internet usage is outdated and ineffective when it comes to curbing the resurgence of anti-Semitism in the Internet age.
