This is a topic that requires one to commit lots of time to research and digest what you learn it is not as simple as many make it out to be. It goes
back farther than 135 B.C. even Jesus had issues with their money exchange and loan practices. Germans used the Ashkenazi Jew (House of Roth/
Rothchild) to bypass German banking laws which barred a German for charging a German interest. I would have to agree with others it is not the Jewish
people but a political ideology with in the group that is disliked. This ideology makes any disagreement with Israeli policy to be antisemitism.
A long list of expulsions
The following is a brief summary of Incidents involving Jews in History...
Antiochus Epiphanes desecrates Second Jewish Temple; leading to Hasmonean Revolt against the Greeks.
Titus took Jerusalem - second revolt. Over one million Jews killed.
580,000 men destroyed, 985 towns destroyed - third revolt.
Purim festival celebrating God's deliverance to Mordecai and the Jews through Esther and the fasting. Lies spread that Jews kill Christians for
sacrifice. Emperor Severus also said the Jews purchased 90,000 Christians to kill them.
Council in Spain banned Christians & Jews meeting or marrying.
Constantine changed the celebration of Easter on the calendar so that it did not coincide with the Jewish Passover.
Vicious writing by St. John Chrysostom and St. Ambrose in Milan who said: "The Jews are the most worthless of all men. They are lecherous, greedy,
rapacious. They are perfidious murderers of Christ. They worship the Devil. Their religion is a sickness. The Jews are the odious assassins of Christ
and for killing God there is no expiation possible, no indulgence or pardon. Christians may never cease vengeance, and the Jew must live in servitude
forever. God always hated the Jews. It is essential that all Christians hate them." He was called the Bishop with the Golden Tongue. St. Ambrose,
Bishop of the Church offered to burn the synagogue himself.
St. Gregory of Nyssa in sermons and writings characterized Jews as assassins of the Prophets, companions of the Devil, a race of vipers, a Sanhedrin
of Demons, enemies of all that is beautiful, hogs and goats in their lewd grossness.
Bishop Severus BURNED THE SYNAGOGUE IN THE VILLAGE OF MAGONA. BISHOP OF
ALEXANDRIA, ST. CYRIL EXPELLED JEWS FROM ALEXANDRIA AND GAVE THE MOB JEWISH PROPERTY.
ACCUSATION of Ritual murder by the Jews during Purim. Christians confiscated synagogues in ANTIOCH.
These were not hooligans but Church Fathers!
AUGUSTINE, JEROME, AMBROSE AND LESSER SAINTS AS ST. CHRYSOSTROM AND CYRIL, added to untruths the new ones that Jews were dishonest and prone to sexual
Jews had to wear special yellow garb. Originated in Islam.
Emperor Henry II of Germany expels Jews from Mainz, the beginning of persecutions against Jews in Germany.
First Crusade. Crusaders massacre the Jews of the Rhineland.
First recorded blood libel. In Norwich it was alleged that the Jews had "bought a Christian child before Easter, tortured him with all the tortures
wherewith our Lord was tortured and on Friday hanged him on a rood in hatred of our Lord." (England)
This notorious allegation that Jews murder non-Jews, especially Christians, in order to obtain blood for the Passover or other rituals is a complex of
deliberate lies, trumped up accusations, and popular beliefs about the murder-lust of the Jews and their blood-thirstiness, based on the conception
that Jews hate Christianity and mankind in general. It is combined with the delusion that Jews are in some way not human and must have recourse to
special remedies and subterfuges in order to appear at least outwardly, like other men. The blood libel led to trials and massacres of Jews. Its
origin is rooted in ancient almost primordial, concepts concerning the potency and energies of blood. It is one of the most terrible expressions of
human cruelty and credulity. These blood rituals are expressly forbidden in Judaism. (See Leviticus 17;11 etc.)
Massacre of Jews in England.
The Jewish badge introduced.

The Reformation. At the end of Martin Luther's life the German reformer vilified the Jews in violent pamphlets which could not fail to exert their
influence. But because Calvinists were steeped in Old Testament theology, the Dutch people respected the Jews as "the Chosen" people; and were not
anti-Semitic in their faith. The reformation was a time of turmoil as the Roman Church and feudalism lost their supremacy. There was a rising up of
Nationhood and Luther was a German nationalist. The Talmud was seized and burned everywhere by Papal authority. Jews in Catholic countries and Polish
Jews suffered greatly. Luther's anti-Semitic writings were later used in anti-Semitic literature.
Rome seized and burned the Talmud by order of the POPE.
12,000 copies of Talmud burned in Milan.
POPE PIUS V ordered all Jews out of the Papal states.
EXPULSIONS from Italy and Bavaria.
Ritual murder charge that sent three Jews to their deaths. Execution of the supposed guilty was done by QUARTERING. (In his book the "Birth of the
Prison" Michel Foucault describes at length the quartering of a condemned man in 1757. It was done eventually by six horses instead of the four
original ones and other means had to come in to play due to the failure even of six horses as the prisoners limbs were tied to ropes harnessed to the
horses. Each horse pulled in a different direction. One horse fell to the ground unsuccessfully. Knives had to be used for severing...)
