Bigotry. Racism. Discrimination. These are all words to describe one thing -- hate. These are all words to express what the Jewish people ,
collectively, have endured for, well, as long as anyone can remember. But why?
That would have to depend on the person who would be answering. I am sure anyone who hates the Jews have their particular reason for their hate,
whether it is justified or not. One of the central themes when reading "anti jewish" posts/literature is many feel that the Jewish people, or more
particularly the Jewish leadership has a sense of arrogance or moral superiority over the "common man," based on comments that have been well
circulated throughout the internet and in literature, ex:
"Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact,
compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over
the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves."
— Israeli Prime Minister Menechem Begin
The body of a Jewish person," Schneerson bragged, "is of a totally different quality from the body of members of all other nations of the world.
Bodies of the Gentiles are in vain. An even greater difference is in regard to the soul...A non-Jewish soul comes from three satanic spheres, while
the Jewish soul stems from holiness."
--Rabbi Mendel Schneerson
“One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail.”
~ Rabbi Ya'acov Perin in his eulogy at the funeral of Dr. Baruch Goldstein (Cited in the New York Times, 1994-02-28)
“Israeli lives are worth more than Palestinian ones.”
Ehud Olmert 2006-06-23
“There is no such thing as a Palestinian people… It is not as if we came and threw them out and took their country. They didn't exist.”
Golda Meir, Prime Minister of Israel, Statement to The Sunday Times, 1969-06-15
How can we return the occupied territories? There is nobody to return them to.”
Golda Meir (quoted in Chapter 13 of The Zionist Connection II: What Price Peace by Alfred Lilienthal )
Another main point main people bring up is that the WWII and the Holocaust have been made to look in the Western Society as though it was "only the
Jewish people" who suffered, and it was mostly only Jewish people who were being killed in concentration camps, and the West barely hears about the
suffering of the other cultures. Approximently 37 millions civilians were killed (source
WWII, only 3 million were jewish, and many feel that the Jewish deaths were over played directly after the War to create the State of Israel, and
since the creation of the Jewish State, it has been nonestop violence, hatred and death, on both sides of the table (jewish/arab)
These are a couple of the more "sensible" reasons I have been able to find, while looking into it. While there are many of the reason out there,
most others are based of blinded hate.
Why can't we all just get along!
