The recent cancellation of Palestinian journalist Nemi El-Hassan shows how Fighting Anti-Semitism in Germany is tightly interwoven with silencing Palestinians and Jews that are in solidarity with oppressed Palestinians. Anna-Esther Younes examines this discourse and introduces the concept of the "War on Anti-Semitism".

the War on Terror is fought against the Muslim Other, or the War on Drugs is fought against
predominantly Latinx and Black communities, the War on Anti-Semitism is ostensibly fought
on behalf of the racialized Jewish Other. The War on Anti-Semitism serves as a pretext justifying
Germany’s internal and external security measures by providing a logic for the management of
non-white migration.
