|Abstrakt EN:||This paper explores the far-right responses to the refugee crisis in the Czech Republic – a country that has nearly no refugees in the first place. While the refugee crisis has given a strong boost to the Czech far-right scene, especially after the mainstream political leaders have pushed the limits of acceptable rhetoric, it has also brought an internal struggle within the far-right scene over the same electorate that has only limited size. In the struggles and quarrels between the movements, antisemitic conspiracy theories and other unclean practices are used for defamation of the competing groups. The paper will explore the complex relationships between the Czech far-right parties and the specific dynamics that have prevented them from actually joining their forces so far. A special case study will be dedicated to the issue of antisemitism in response to the migration crisis, where the Jews are being blamed for both causing the crisis and using it to invoke support for Israel by creating the pro-Israel anti-immigration parties.|
