  • As near as I can ascertain: Jewish folks have scriptures that denote Jews as 'God's Chosen People". Many coat tail riders- such as Christianity and Islam, would like to have the endorsement of "the Chosen People". And since the Jews consistently refuse to see "the truth", religious arrogance allows the refused to justify attacking them. And besides, Jews work hard, and tend to be a success. Success breeds contempt from those who feel that all the blessings belong to those who worship the "proper" way without actually having to work for it.
  • What kind of people are they? That's what you need to ask yourself. Hate is done by more people who claim to be 'Good',then the other way around.*
  • Many people in America have worked up the masses in this country to hate the rich and many Jewish people are very wealthy. That is not the only reason but with Obama's hate the rich speeches, it's the most current reason. The nutjob that shot the guard yesterday was demented.
  • Banned. . . . . .though I am NOT of the Jewish faith, I don't know why, either! I've even asked a Jewish person why they feel they are. . . . .and they didn't have an answer, either! I don't know! I see them no worse. . . . .or better. . . . .than any other race! Just wanted you to know that I've pondered this query many times! Thanks for asking it!
  • I don't think they have done except causing the displacement of many Palestinians!:0. Apart from that they are known to stick together and support each other (and so are little understood by the majority), usually rise to dizzy heights of success, are extremely good businessmen and therefore difficult to make much of a profit out of:=0, very often highly, and I mean highly educated, all of which might cause jealousy and suspicion amongst the less successful and bewildered onlookers.:)
  • For the longest time, we were blamed for killing Christ. That was the official position of the Church until 1965 (Vatican II). I suspect that many people still hold on to their hatred despite what their religious leaders say. The Muslims are a different story, involving Palestine, Zionism, etc.
  • Have a browse through this: http://www.thewe.cc/contents/more/archive/atrocities.htm And this is just for starters.
  • Sarah and Abraham left their home in Haran to travel in Canaan, because God promised to give them a land. For a time she and Abraham were in Egypt and they pretended to be brother and sister out of fear that Sarah's beauty would incite the Egyptians to kill her husband. Sarah lived ninety years of her life without bearing children and asked Abraham to father a son (Ishmael) through her servant Hagar. God promised that Sarah too would bear a son and she laughed at the idea. Later she laughed for joy when her baby was born, and she named the child Isaac which means "he laughed." http://demo.lutherproductions.com/bibletutor/level1/program/start/people/sarah.htm
  • They are ignorant
  • We are all of the HUMAN race.
  • The Jews have historically faced problems throughout the world and throughout history for much the same reasons that Gypseys have: they move in among an alien society but never fully assimilate to it. Even ancient sources from all over the Near East in the 3rd Millennium BC complain of the blight of the Habiru (Hebrews) among them. Many of the societies that the Jews have sojourned among were pastoral-agrarian societies in which the Jews came to dominate mercantile and financial matters -- and virtually every pastoral and agrarian culture has regarded merchants as thieves because they don't make or grow anything, but merely profit on the trade - something which smacked of swindle and sometimes black-magic. In western Europe the Jews ran into additional problems (much the same as the problems that the Chinese ran into (and stil run into) in the rest of Asia). The Jews were a mercantile/shop-keeping people out of the Levant while the western European were pastoral-agrarian folk with an ancient tribal-warrior ethic. The problems that come about between such peoples is that the Jewish employer expects his employees and those he trades with to look out for themselves and vociferously and adamantally speak up for their own interests while the western European workers expected something more partriarchal and vendors & customers expected something more neighborly and polite. Also when a man from an agrarian society (especially a Christian agrarian society) says, "can you lend me ..." he means "can you do me a favor" while the Levantine (Greeks, Phoenicians, and many Turks as well) understands it as an investment that he expects to be paid back and with interest. Also, rural folk, no matter how much land and livestock they have, and how full their barns, tend to be quite poor in specie, which is what the city merchants and usurers insisted on paying with and being paid in, so the country-folk had to keep hocking their possessions just to borrow cash to pay back what they owed, cash which they'd have to pay back at interest, so they'd have to hock even more of what they still had left, creating a viscious cycle. Also, while Jews tended to be comparatively tight and hardnosed in business dealings while western Europeans were "neighborly" and generally thought it in poor taste, de-classe, and un-chivalric to haggle over money (their barbarian heritage still valued "magnamity" - i.e., "being blase about wasting money"), Jews like other Levantines tended to be far more generous in personal matters, even to shirt-tail relations, making gifts that western Europeans saw as showey, ostentatious, and in poor taste. Compare the typical haul of a Jewish boy at his Bar Mitzvah compared with what the typical WASP gets at his Confirmation (typically a Bible or prayer book with his name engraved on it and, if a girl, a pretty communion dress). An Eastern European and Levantine wedding typically involves the whole village making gifts that set the young couple up in life completely while the western European believed a man shouldn't get married until he could afford a house and household himself, and it was an insult to offer/give him money to do so. Even at my own wedding, my father's Jewish lawyer, an old Jewish friend who'd been his chief salesman 30 years before, and his chief Jewish investor each gave me *sizable* cash gifts by envelope at the reception in addition to the already extravagent gifts they'd sent, while the best we got from my waspish relatives and oldest family friends (all quite wealthy) was the typical fine china plate or silver fork. The silly old suburbanite matrons of course saw the former as ostentation: I knew better - our Jewish friends really understood how to celebrate and what to celebrate and did so from the bottom of their hearts and thus also the bottom of their wallets. It also was common (and still is) for Jews (and Greeks, and Chinese, and Koreans) to set-up friends and relatives in business - something unthinkable in traditional western bourgeois waspish culture. (When I was trying to raise money to start a business, not only could I not ask my own father for help, a loan, or an investment, when I sold my stock in his own company to him to raise the capital he insisted on pocketing what would have been the commission had I sold it on the open market.) Now there's nothing wrong with either culture, but when cohabitating there was naturally much misunderstanding, irritation, and resentment. And as Jews tended to come out with the long end of the stick in business trades and negotiations, and pooled their resources more effectively, there was a lot of suspicion as well as resentment and animosity against them. Others will make a big deal out of the charge of deicide in western Europe, but this was just a little extra gasoline that was added to an already burning fire. The cause there was socio-economic and cultural, not theological. In the Middle Ages the Christian bishops (fellow city-dwellers with the Jews) in fact were usually the great protectors of the Jews against the rural masses and nobility. As for the Middle East, though the Koran rebukes the Jews for their rejection of "Messiah Jesus" and consigns them to 2nd Class status within Islamic society (along with the Christians) for not being Moslems, they managed pretty well among fellow Levantines (Christian and Moslem as well as Jews) until Zionism started establishing a beach-head in Palestine after World War I, and after 1947 they became "the enemy" to be driven into the sea. Interestingly, you don't find Jews in East Asia -- they can't compete with the Chinese, or at least don't want to. (The Chinese are generally hailed as "the Jews of Asia".) Asian culture being authoriatarian, though, violence against the Chinese was almost always "private" - usually in dark alleys, though there were occassional mob riots against them. But the aristocracy were utterly in bed with the Chinese merchant class - litterally as well as figuratively - and so there was rarely any government action against them. It would have been rather difficult since the Chinese really were the government, providing the bulk of their civil servants as well as their financiers. But unlike the Jews, Chinese merchants were not accompanied by Chinese wives, and so they always took local spouses. Their children, however, would only be wed to the aristocrats, new Chinese male arrivals, or the half-Chinese children of other local Chinese merchants. This way, they'd only half-assimilate, maintaining a semi-Chinese identity for centuries. And such old animosities against them remain even today, however moderated. In Thailand today there's still the expression that translates basically as "thieving Chinese bastard". In an adult language class I was teaching, they asked me about my wife's work, and I said that she had worked as a manager for a small Thai business but that there had been some difficulties - attempting to explain, I offered simply, "Well the owners were very good people but ... well ... they're Chinese shopkeepers ..." - and that was all I needed to say! INSTANT COMPREHENSION as well as sympathy from each one of my Thai students. ADDENDUM - I almost forgot the Biblical answer: It's part of God's sovereign plan that his chosen people should be (1) a nation of priests proclaiming the Glory of God to the nations, (2) strangers in a strange land, (3) something of a cosmic whipping boy for the sins of man (just like His Messiah - but that's a Christian addition). The job of the People of God is to be the yeast in the dough - an infiltrating and transforming agent working to establish justice, mercy, and compassion. As is the case with the true Christians, doing that sort of thing can make you very unpopular with the worldly.
  • personally , I have no idea, me , Im fine with the whole resonance of being.................who ever and whatever you are :)
  • New World Order and Illuminati, you tell me.
  • Once again, you twist things to make them fit an agenda. People don't dislike the Jewish people. People dislike and disagree with Israel and the Zionists. Israel's behavior, particularly, towards the Palestinians is as bad as the Nazzis. The Zionists are a dreadful bunch who will catapult the world into disaster if left to their devices. There's nothing to like about Israel and the Zionists and, well, there's a lot that can be said about the Jewish people for electing those characters into power and for condoning their government's actions
  • +5. I am a Southern Baptist who loves Israel and the Jewish people. I pray for them both. That being said there are people that feel that they are superior to everyone. Jews, gays, transgendered and anyone else not like them should be hated by them. They are so wrong and do not fully understand that the Jews are God's Chosen people. I do not understand it. I have many friends of all faiths including Jewish. I love the respect that Jewish people have for God. If you dislike Jews then please I pray for you and that you may see they are the Chosen Ones of God
  • I personally... love Jews. I've also personally.. never met one.

  • Excellent question Banned. They make brilliant doctors and excellent lawyers which probably causes acute jealousy. I am Jewish myself and your question has pushed my button honey, about WHY? Sometimes anti-Jewishness runs in the family, thru generations. By the time a person grows up into adult it's already in his blood regardless how many bad or good Jews he met. We work very hard and we get results - excellent careers and good rewards. 5 + (wish I could give you 10+ LOL) You are great Banned! I can't wait to see what kind of answers you are gonna get.
  • I think that people like that would just hate some other people if Jews didn't exist. Some people are just so inferior that the only way they can build their self worth is to look down on others. They also tend to be of the lowest I.Q. and least educated.
  • I know that many Orthodox Jews don't believe Jesus was the Messiah, but regardless of that fact Jewish people are know for keeping the Law of God. - These Laws given to them by God, appear strange, harsh, and even barbaric to most people that don't understand their purpose. People tend to hate and dislike what they don't understand or agree with. - John the Baptist was beheaded because he told the king it was unlawful, for him to be taking his brother's wife. People who don't know God, dislike hearing someone tell them what they should or shouldn't do. Jews tend to keep to themselves and avoid sinners or people that practice sin.....people don't appreciate being excluded....they take it personal and it makes some mad. - The bible tells us that the Jews are God's chosen people. They are the people to be credited with preserving the Law of God for all generations of people to have and learn from.
  • Benjamin Franklin's opinion about Jews: "For over 1,700 years, the Jews have been bewailing their sad fate in that they have been exiled from their homeland, as they call Palestine. But gentlemen, did the world give it to them in fee simple, they would at once find some reason for not returning. Why? Because they are vampires, and vampires do not live on vampires. They cannot live only among themselves. They must subsist on Christians and other people not of their race". (Passage of Benjamin Franklin's speech in a "CHIT CHAT AROUND THE TABLE DURING INTERMISSION," at the Philadelphia Constitutio-nal Convention of 1787. This statement was recorded in the diary of Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, a delegate from South Carolina.) ==================== Theodor Herzl, Founder of Zionism in 1897 wrote: “It is essential that the sufferings of Jews. . . become worse. . . this will assist in realization of our plans. . . I have an excellent idea. . . I shall induce anti-semites to liquidate Jewish wealth. . . The anti-semites will assist us thereby in that they will strengthen the persecution and oppression of Jews. The anti-semites shall be our best friends”. -- From Herzl's Diary Theodor Herzl, the founder of the Zionist movement in 1897, realized that the Zionists could use anti-Semitism to manipulate people. He wrote in his diary: “The anti-semites shall be our best friends” The Ashkenazi-Nazis are creating the impression that the world is full of anti-Semites. This brings pity to the Jews, frightens some of the honest Jews into either fleeing to Israel or working with the Zionists, and it justifies "hate crime" legislation to protect the poor, innocent Jews. By creating and infiltrating Nazi-type groups, the Zionists can also identify the Goyim who are angry with Zionism. By identifying their enemies, they can arrange for them to be murdered, threatened, or blackmailed.

  • Jewish Founded Organizations: ADL: The World's Largest Racist Hate Group. . The Anti-Defamation League is the longest running and most powerful hate group in the United States with 28 offices domestically and 3 offices abroad. They bring in nearly $60 million a year to combat free speech and the right of ethnic minorities to defend themselves from bigotry (including Black Muslims, Arabs, and Euro-Americans). .

  • OF COURSE I am serious. It is a credible site. But since you mentioned the Franklin Insitute: Regarding: "excerpts from the journal of Charles Pickney of South Carolina of the proceedings of Constitutional Convention of 1789 regarding the statement of Benjamin Franklin at the convention concerning Jewish immigration." Supposedly housed at The Franklin Institute... There is a small publication titled "Benjamin Franklin Vindicated," published by The International Franklin Society, that contains statements from a variety of sources condemning the speech as a hoax. One of the statements is by Henry Butler Allen, Director of The Franklin Institute in the 1930s. http://sln.fi.edu/franklin/birthday/faq.html#36 Regarding the Washington 'quote': http://www.snopes.com/quotes/thejews.asp . As for Michael Hoffman being 'foremost scholar of Judaism he is nothing of the kind. He's a revisionist 'historian' and a conspiracy theorist who claims that Route 66 was built to connect Satanic centers together. . I can't be bothered to look at any more of your links. They're trash. People can put up ANYTHING they want on the internet, generally your internet provider kicks in a few megabytes free with your account. . That is why I look to legitimate sources when something controversial comes up. I recommend you start doing the same.
  • nothing realy. people needed a scape goat when times were bad. there were the jews. there were not very many of them in any given area, they lived separately, had different belifes, ways of dress, and customes. they were a convinent target. that and certin passages in the new testament can be intpeted as god had turned his back on them and that made them fair game.
  • because of lies, misconceptions, twisting and distorting facts out of downright malice and blatant ignorance. take for example hitler. for someone so bright and intelligent he was such an idiot and horrible human being. he and all his goons and cronies proved to be the most ignorant of his race. not that all germans are evil, hitler and his nazi party just proved that there is evil in all races. the german race as a whole should not be condemned for what a few very misguided germans did. this also applies to the jewish race. many hate the jewish race for what happened to Jesus Christ. while it is truly horrible to put an innocent man to death, especially the saviour of the world, this does not mean that all the jews should be punished for the actions of the first century jews, led by none other than the religious leaders of their day. for more information go to www.watchtower.org
  • It is very sad and tragic. The Jews are God's chosen race, so anything that is of God will always be under attack. They have been under attack for thousands of years from the times they were enslaved in Egypt. Thank the Lord that He will come back and save them.
  • Abodah Zara 26b: "Even the best of the Gentiles should be killed." Schulchan Aruch, Cooszen Hamiszpat 348: "All property of other nations belongs to the jewish nation, which, consequently, is entitled to seize upon it without any scruples." Just a couple of the jewish teachings. Aren't they lovely people?
