It is not just against Jews. Why has racism been a problem throughout human history? The answer is simple - sin. We harbor evil thoughts about other people and commit evil acts against other people because of sin (Romans 3:10-23). Sin appears to make us innately suspicious of people who look differently from us. We should never judge an entire ethnicity based on the evil actions of one member of that ethnicity, or many members of a particular ethnicity for that matter.
Because back a long time ago there was this person called Adolf Hitler and for some no reason he hated Jewish people. He turned lots of people against Jewish people, and some people still believe in his beliefs.
I am Jewish. I do not think I am above or better than anyone else. I sit in judgement of no one. I am respectful of everyone's beliefs and opinions. I am kind of offended by some of these answers because you are "assuming" all people of the Jewish faith are the same.
Antisemitism has been a way of life for most of the Middle East for five thousand years. The Jews call themselves the Chosen Children of God - which doesn't go down well at all. They have always been the brokers of wealth, diamonds, gold etc. and were money-lenders to all and sundry. THAT made everyone else jealous because the Jews were so rich. And the REAL killer: Christians regard Jews as individually and personally liable for torturing and killing Jesus Christ. All of these reasons are facile and unsustainable. but prejudice doesn't need facts and proof to spoil it's mindless discrimination.
Evidently A Great Deal of People Feel That J e w s Did (Or Did Not) something They Feel Is Offensive. Have Any Idea What That May Be? Any Validity To It? Point I s Racism Is Hated By God. H e Is Love. ------ ><> -------- Scripture Quote ------ ><> -------- For God shows no partiality [undue favor or unfairness; with Him one man is not different from another]. (Romans 2:11 AMP)
Because they are favored by God and that makes people jealous. Everybody wants their land but God gave it to them. It will always be theirs. They are rich because they work so hard and honor God. I love Israeal and Jewish people because God does and I love and obey God. God says.. I will bless those that bless you and curse those that curse you. I WANT Gods blessings.
A few people have brought up Hitler. He certainly was a horrible murderer but it started hundreds of years before Hitler. During the Middle Ages in Europe at various times Jews were forced to live in Ghettos and not allowed to own land. They were not allowed in certain professions and lending money was one of the few ways they had to make a living. There were also laws in some places that forbade Christians to charge each other interest on loans. Few people want to loan money if they can't charge interest so unable to borrow from fellow Christians they borrowed money from the Jews. Then hated them for being moneylenders. Many people also blame the Jews for murdering Jesus Christ. This of course is ridiculous. No Jew alive now had anything to do with killing Christ. It all comes down to bigotry. People find excuses to hate others whom they perceive as being different from themselves.
