Icepack, that's exactly the problem. If people like to be antisemitic (no matter why) it's their choice and right to be. If they decide to be
antiislamic it's their right too. Same applies to every religion or nation in the world.
Sure there's nothing to applaude. But labelling someone as antisemitic won't help much. Citing 70 year old nazi terms either. If you do this the next
step will be the discussion about Israel's genocide in Palestine. And all this just because of an old cartoon from 1912?
Stop taking it personally and try to understand why a lot of people have issues with the jews. I am half persian. I've been to "my" country several
times and it's beautiful as are the people. I used to fight everyone who said something against this nation. When the voices against Iran got louder I
started to consider their arguments and tried to understand their motivation. We fear what we don't understand and we envy what we don't have. People
are afraid that every iranian is like his leader. People like stereotypes and cliches and the actual picture of your everyday iranian is that he sends
his children with bombs strapped to their bodies on suicide missions, that he hates jews and wants to destroy israel, that he's craving for the atom
bomb to destroy the planet... Nothing could be further from the truth but tbh I would be afraid too if I didn't know better... That's the power of
MSM... And the lack of critical thinking...
If you want to defend your origins (again) stop taking everything personally and stop blaming everyone of being antisemitic. Actually I think only a
very small percentage is really antisemitic. Most are not sufficiently informed or just want to join in.
Sorry if this sounds like a lecture... It's just my two cents...
