This chapter investigates how Antisemitism Worldwide 1994 is repetitive compared to the reports of the Institute of Jewish Affairs on the phenomenon of antisemitism. Designed according to a similar pattern, it is more superficial, and contains more errors and stereotypical oversimplifications. These are clearly evident in the chapter about Poland. The authors provide short descriptions of several organizations, quite randomly chosen, and without any particular consideration of their character, scope, or influence. On active and influential strictly antisemitic parties, there is only one sentence, and that is devoted to the Senioral National party. Meanwhile, the part devoted to 'Holocaust denial' is redolent with stereotypes popular in Israel. The chapter then contends that the phenomenon of antisemitism with its uniqueness, and at the same time its relation to other forms of xenophobia and racism, still remains a mysterious and continually frightening problem.
