According to the French electronic magazine "La République des Lettres", Jeambar is ideologically close to neoconservatism, having displayed in the French journal L'Express "the opinion of the neoconservative, atlantist and zionist french right, mostly represented recently in France by former president Nicolas Sarkozy".[2] René-Éric Dagorn underlines Jeambar's ideological proximity with Samuel Huntington, author of the "Clash of cvilizations":[3] according to him, Denis Jeambar and Alain Louyot have written an article published in L'Express, September 13, 2001 in which "all the arguments point to Huntington [...]".

According to French author Guillaume Weill-Raynal Denis Jeambar, along with journalist Daniel Leconte, has played an important role in the building of the controversy around the Muhammad al-Durrah incident.[4]
