In the current age, it's not so much hatred for Jews, or Judaism, as it is a hatred for Zionism.
I don't even want to get started on reason to dislike Zionism, but basically they formed an illegal state through terrorism, had their buddies in the
UN declare they were legit state, fired torpedoes and sunk a US spy ship during the 7 day war on purpose (USS Liberty.. google it), while gunning down
the surviving crew, and claimed it was an accident, perform acts of genocide on Palestinians that they illegally kicked out of their country, use
illegal forms of warfare including white phosphorus on civilian populations, hospitals and schools, and continue to steal Palestinian land and
bulldoze houses, while not allowing in materials for them to build new ones, keeping the people in a grid-locked checkpoint every-few-miles ghetto
with no chance for hope, use UAVs to send rockets into civilian houses, intentionally target journalists and cameramen in Palestine and Gaza so that
journalists will be discouraged from reporting on their atrocities, all the while blackmailing USA into funding most of their war-machine
Sorry for the run on sentence.
Now, if you want to talk about why the Nazi party hated the Jews, here's the reason why. There were a lot of Jews in Germany during WWI, many with
high ranking positions in politics. At the end of WWI, the high ranking Jews basically "sold out" Germany to their Jewish allies in Britain, US,
etc. Basically, they made Germany lose the war prematurely, when many still thought they had a fighting chance. They signed a deal that not only ended
the war, but put incredibly horrible economic stipulations on Germany for the future, including massive war reparations that were to be repayed. This
kind of backed Germany into a corner to make them fight another war to get out of the insane reparations that they now owed. This also severely pissed
off many German patriots, who thought they could have won the war if they were not sold out by traitors with foreign interests over Germany. One of
these men that got really enraged about the whole thing was Hitler. After his rise to power, he was intent on starting another war, but this time he
knew that he could not trust any Jew, because they sold the country out to foreign interests before.
Basically, no one can blame him for not trusting the Jews. The USA did the exact same thing with the Japanese during WWII. We shipped them off to
concentration camps also, because they "couldn't be trusted". The only difference was Hitler went wayyyyyyy over the line, and decided he needed to
"exterminate" the Jewish problem once and for all. There's no excuse for what he did. There would have been no war crimes involved if he simply
kept them in internment camps... Instead of labor camps and death camps. But his original justification certainly made sense.
Now, getting back to Judaism in general. I have no beef with the religion itself, but many Jews think that they are "God's chosen people". They
were, no question, I have no problem with that. Most religions, however, you can convert and be saved. Most religions welcome converts with an open
hand. Many Jews believe that only the "chosen people can be saved". I've been told by Jews before that only people Jewish by blood will go to
heaven. They told me that I could never be saved, and I could never convert to Judaism even if I wanted to. That's the only real beef I have with
Jews, in terms of their religious beliefs.
I also have a problem with the United States allowing Jewish politicians to hold a dual citizenship with Israel. No other politicians are allowed to
have dual-citizenships, as far as I know, only Israelis. This problem goes back to the same problem Hitler had, where many people with political power
have allegiances to foreign interests. In other words, they can't be trusted to have the best interests in mind for the USA.
And just to clarify, I don't hate Jews. Just Zionists.
Hope that shed some light on things.
