I don't know what anti-Jewishness has got to do with this forum since it deals with Middle Eastern matters.
Do you suppose the news of a racist anti Jewish event that may have happened, in say Canada, would entail the placing of the item in the ME forum?
While most active posters on this forum are anti zionist/anti Israel and zionist/pro Israel, anti Jewishness is a wholly separate matter that needs to be dealt with along bigotry and racism elsewhere.
Nevertheless, I do know that most zionists like to present their political detractors as being somehow racist and shut down debate. The effect is thusly; Israel commits horrendous acts in Gaza as it recently did, people are appalled and angered, zionists announce an outbreak of anti Jewishness.
This ruse does not work any more and cannot withstand the obvious fascistic nature of zionism in Palestine.
No mention of Israels losses. Racist.

That was by far the worst generalization, bordering on stupidity and ignorance.
The reason Jews took up usury (money lending) is only because they were not allowed to own any property. It was not because they are evil money lenders like you imply. What they did is a perfect example of survival and adaptation. Please read a book on the subject or at least do a wiki search.
The Jews were portrayed to the public as "upstarts" who were attempting to take control of Europe, particularly of its financial sector. This widespread lie, combined with the fact that many Europeans, reeling from the famine of 1816, were heavily indebted to Jewish bankers and moneylenders, sparked violence beginning in Wuerzburg in August of 1819. The attacks on Jews and Jewish property spread from there to the whole of Germany, with particularly vicious conflict occurring in Frankfurt, Leipzig, Dresden, and Darmstadt. Eventually, the rioting reached as far as Denmark and Poland.

If your intention is to offend me by calling me a jew-hater/anti-semite or whatever, then you should know that I have heard those terms so many times that they're words without meaning. I'm actually proud of the fact that I do not sympathise nor like them or their actions towards "gentiles".
I have no issue with some jewish individuals and even have jewish friends who know where i stand on the topic. However I hate the vast majority of jews for their arrogance, greed, indifference to non-jew suffering and their attitudes, beliefs, morals and ethics towards people who aren't jews.
I hate their actions in the middle-east and i hate the fact that they stole the country which my family and my ancestors had lived in, I hate that they destroyed Lebanon and I hate that they get away with it. I hate that they get billions of dollars in funding and spend it on killing, destruction and driving people out of their homes.
I see Jews in the same light that they see the Nazi's and I hate them for the same reason they hate the Nazi's. The difference is the Nazi regime only lasted a few years, but the Jewish regime has continued for 60 years.
They were responsible for inflation during the 1816 famine in which tens of thousands of people starved to death. People in Germany were forced to eat bread made from straw and saw dust because of the inflated cost of grains along with the debt and interest owed to jews.
The Year Without a Summer (also known as the Poverty Year, and the Year There Was No Summer) was 1816, in which severe summer climate abnormalities destroyed crops in Northern Europe, the American Northeast and eastern Canada.Historian John D. Post has called this "the last great subsistence crisis in the Western world".It appears to have been caused by a volcanic winter.

Jews think they are better than others, they consider themselves "God's Chosen People." And that is an undeniable fact.
