|Abstrakt EN:||In my presentation, I have attempted to explore the various intergroup relations of Neo-Nazis towards the Muslims in the Czech Republic. Hetero-stereotypes and intergroup bias between these two scenes will be analyzed by using interdisciplinary approach that will include field observation and methods of discursive analysis in order to describe the wide spectrum of mutual relations that could range from open hostility to more or less disguissed affinity. By exploring the conflicting images of Muslims in the neo-Nazi thought ("barbaric immigrants" vs. "Palestinians holocausted by the Zionists"), my presentation will attempt to name the less-known factors that are responsible for policymaking of the far-right about the muslim cultural space and thus define the conditions, under which the mutual cooperation is or is not possible. Exploration of anti-immigration rhetorics will show, how is the islamophobia being connected and misused for the purpose of antisemitism and what do such accusations reveal about foreign inspirations of the Czech antisemitic scene. The presentation will be concluded by short overview of the Neo-Nazi attitudes towards the events of “Arab Spring”.|
