Modern antisemitism is built on a conspiracy theory that Jews are very rich and powerful, and that Jews use this money and influence to manipulate and control governments, banks and the media. This kind of antisemitic conspiracy theory can appear in different forms, sometimes directed at prominent Jewish individuals like George Soros or families like the Rothschilds, but it always identifies Jews, Zionists or Israel as a ‘hidden hand’ secretly directing major world events to the detriment of humanity.
Anti-Jewish racism adapts, like a virus, taking on new forms. It's no surprise that the Covid pandemic gave rise to dangerous antisemitic conspiracy theories. Many of these have made their way across the internet, despite their origins in extremist spaces. They even get voiced in offline spaces.
