Why is there so much antisemitism on this website? For a forum with a motto of Deny Ignorance, there are constant threads and posts where people take the most ignorant positions such as denying the holocaust or claiming that Jews are trying to run the world.
I really don't understand it, I go hit with a double warning for making slightly offensive remark about another poster's apparent infatuation with Obama, but people are allowed to deny the right of a people to exist, to deny the murder of millions of innocent people based on their cultural background, and blame a tiny minority for all the world's problems.
I really get tired of constantly trying to be a counter to all this ignorance. I came to this site to learn, and I have. I learned about swine flu before any of my friends, and I have learned a lot about the global financial meltdown, and other topics that are very interesting. However, I have also learned that there are still people in this world who hate Jews even though they probably never met a Jew in their lives.

To say there is no hate for Jews is a deception. To say you hate the Zionists in Israel but not the Jews is like saying I hate citizens of the United States but I love Americans. Israel is a democracy and an ally to the western world. How does one say they hate the Zionists then. For war crimes..? A matter of opinion, we would do the same and it all depends on how you see it. The real war criminals are the Arabs and Persians and we should stop hating everything Israel does. So to be back on topic and to the point. You can't say "I hate the Zionists but not the Jews.." Just admit it that you do so we can be clear on the matter. What would you say, I love Harlem, I just don't care for all the black people there...? See how ridiculous that sounds..?
Traditional Jews Are Not Zionists Although there are those who refuse to accept the teachings of our Rabbis and will continue to support the Zionist state, there are also many who are totally unaware of the history of Zionism and its contradiction to the beliefs of Torah-True Jews.
Why is there so much Jew Hating on ATS
The worldwide Jewish population is 13.3 million Jews. Jewish population growth worldwide is close to zero percent. From 2000 to 2001 it rose 0.3%, compared to worldwide population growth of 1.4%.
In 2001, 8.3 million Jews lived in the Diaspora and 4.9 million lived in Israel. Just about half of the world’s Jews reside in the Americas, with about 46 percent in North America. (top)
Approximately 37% of worldwide Jewry lives in Israel. Israel's Jewish population rose by 1.6% the past year, while the Diaspora population dropped by 0.5%.
Europe, including the Asian territories of the Russian Republic and Turkey, accounts for about 12 percent of the total. Fewer than 2 percent of the world’s Jews live in Africa and Oceania.
Metropolitan Tel Aviv, with 2.5 million Jews, is the world's largest Jewish city. It is followed by New York, with 1.9 million, Haifa 655,000, Los Angeles 621,000, Jerusalem 570,000, and southeast Florida 514,000.
In 2001, 8 countries had a Jewish population of 100,000 or more; another 5 countries had 50,000 or more. There is not a single Diaspora country where Jews amounted to 2.5 percent of the total population. Only 3 Diaspora countries had more than 1 percent. Gibraltar (24.0 per 1000), United States (20.1), Canada (11.9), France (8.8), Uruguay (6.7), Argentina (5.3), Hungary (5.2), and Australia (5.1) had the highest ratios.

My question is: Like Texans - they don't call themselves Americans like the other 49 states do. Israelis do not call themselves Israelis they call themselves Jews. In my opinion that makes everything hard to distinguish when you are trying to make a point. I don't dislike Texan's I dislike what Texas stands for - I don't dislike Jews - I dislike what Israel stands for.
find a story about something that happened in Israel, criticize the Israeli government, criticize the US support for Israel, deny Israel's right to exist, claim that Israelis are warmongers, blame all the world's problems on Israel.
deny Israel's right to exist
claim that Israelis are warmongers
