Abstract

The most relevant part of a discussion is not what is discussed but what cannot be spoken of. The real taboos are those for which it is taboo to call them taboos. The status quo defines itself as non-ideological while denouncing any challenge to itself as radical. Therefore the column ‘De blinde vlek’ frames the framers, politicizes the status quo and articulates what is not heard of.

In this article, we assume antisemitism as a form of discrimination and racism. Combating antisemitism requires awareness, understanding and an approach of diversity inclusion. Unfortunately, the National Coordinator for Countering Antisemitism (NCAB) in The Netherlands sees this primarily as a security problem. And that is counterproductive.
