Political Ideologies

Antisemitism is found in different extremist ideologies, including far right, far left and Islamist extremism. This is partly because extremist ideologies usually incorporate conspiracy theories. Antisemitism can take different forms or use different language depending on the type of political ideology where it is found, but there are also commonalities that link the different ideological types of antisemitism.
