Clemens Heni is a German political scientist, publicist, editor and director of "The Berlin International Center for the Study of Antisemitism" (BICSA).
"Stupidity, propaganda and internet-based misinformation is one thing. And it is horrible and very dangerous. But nationalist ideology comes in addition. The rise of the New Right in Europe is a case in point. While a nation-state is essential in an extreme hostile area like the Middle East and Jews are facing persecution and antisemitism worldwide, to different degrees, Zionism is a crucial point for a nation-state. [...] But nation-states in Europe and nationalism were the main reason for violence and war in Europe. Europe faced the most horrible wars in the twentieth century. The unprecedented crime of the Holocaust was done by the Germans (and their allies). Therefore, a supranational body is important, cosmopolitanism can at least reduce German nationalism and other forms of bigotry."
