Anti-Semitism

That in our day and age any man, woman or child should be attacked or harassed on account of race, creed, nationality, ideology, social or physical characteristics is completely unacceptable. The world needs to come to grips with the age-old tragedy of Jews being so often discriminated and persecuted.

However, continuously crying “Anti-Semitism!” to stifle all criticism of Israel’s seventy years of genocidal attacks on the Palestinians does not and should not work anymore.

The good news; it doesn’t!

Yes, the history of the Jewish people is filled with persecutions and expulsions.

All these different communities shared nothing in common. They were not all Christian. They were not all Nazi. They were not all white. They were not all European. In struggling to find the one common denominator to explain this 2000 year discord one is left with the inevitable conclusion that it it the manner in which the Jewish people treat all those around them, predatory financial practices, unshakeable sense of racial superiority and entitlement justifying a strong cultural arrogance, that inevitably leads to the problems.

If it is important to the Jews to end the hostility of the rest of the world against them, then maybe being less hostile towards others is a good first step
