Misbehavior? Over the centuries there have been many, many, many pogroms launched against Jews, and admittedly many Christian sects, in Europe and
other places...not to mention some disturbing trends here in the United States. The reasons usually go something like this: They killed Christ.
They own everything. They practise unholy, read non-catholic, or non-islamic, rites. Variations on the theme are used sometimes. The reasons are
mere excuses for seizing assets belonging to others who don't kowtow to established authority...the infamous Inquisitions were this very thing,
Jews, other sects of Christianity, women who dared to be themselves and not bow to convention, the list is as extensive as the list of the Inquisitors
Merely scapegoats, for daring to be different. Or rich and influential. We hear the refrain constantly...
I, for one, really do not blame the Jews for being just the littlest bit beligerent when it comes to protecting themselves in Israel, or any where
else for that matter. I'd be a little paranoid too, if throughout recent history my faith has been attacked, my family attacked, and now they,
whoever they are, seem to be marshalling their forces again.
Blame the Jew, never fails to get results...
In case that was too rambling a response, it is almost five thirty afterall, the various powers that be in Europe at various times have needed a
scapegoat to explain to the people why they were poor, sick, and unlikely to ever improve their lot in life...sooooo...find a scapegoat, oh my, how
convienient, here is a group of people who for the most part mind their own business, live apart from the others around them, worship differently from
the others around them, and most important and perhaps scary for the powers that be, a tad bit more succussful than is allowable. Becomes obvious,
no? It must be the fault of the evil Jew that everyone (?) is so poor and sick and unlikely to ever improve their lot in life.
Sound familiar? It should...we here it to this day. I've been seeing a whole heaping helping of it here on ATS in recent days. Especially in light
of Israel daring to defend herself.
