(p.1) Introduction
Muslims and Jews in France

Maud S. Mandel

Princeton University Press

This introductory chapter discusses the roots of the conflict between Muslim and Jews in France. It reviews the cultural and historical connections linking these two populations. It describes the vastly different levels of Muslim and Jewish communal development in the metropole that created sharply divergent processes of integration. By the early twenty-first century, Jews proved more economically mobile, better educated, and professionally better placed than the general population and certainly than French Muslims. However, the organized community was often criticized for failing to defend Jewish interests successfully, particularly with regard to foreign policy around Israel. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   French Muslims, French Jews, France, Muslim–Jewish relations, integration, Israel
