I suppose any group calling themselves the Master Race (or 'chosen people' which amounts to the same thing) will cause feelings of hatred or
contempt by the rest of humanity (99.999%) - although modern Jews are no longer are 'Judaeans' but are of mixed races & proselytes.
To your point, the concept of 'collective punishment' is found within the 'core' of Rabinnic Judaeism, i.e. the Torah which espouses racial
genocide of entire villages if ONE person is found trying to worship other clan gods than YHWH the post exilic clan god of the Judaeans.
Below are some specific passages within the Torah 'of the Jews' which specifically espouse racial genocide (most use the technical Heb. Term CH-R-M
= to ‘mark for extermination’ in the context of a Holy War where a specific group is targeted for extinction) of the Canaanite amphyctionies &
specifically about ‘divine commands’ to exterminate the Amalekites - especially ‘marked for extermination’ almost as if they were wearing
e.g. Exodus 17: 8-16
And YHWH said to Mosheh, Write this down as a Memorial on a Scroll & read it into the ears of Joshua son of Nun : Behold, I will Exterminate the Seed
(lit. ‘Remembrance’) of the Amalekites from Under the Heavens. Therefore Mosheh built an Altar to YHWH there etc.
Deuteronomy 7: 1-5 (i.e. Torah)
When YHWH your clan god brings you to the land where you are headed to take possession of it, and has cast out the goyim before you even the Hittites,
and the Girgachites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, even seven gentile nations that are
more numerous and powerful that you are now:
And when YHWH your clan god has delivered them, you shall utterly exterminate them all showing no mercy to them; neither will you make peace treaties
with them nor enter into marriage with them – for they will turn your sons from following me, and cause them to worship other clan gods – thus
will the anger of YHWH burn against you and destroy you without notice.
Deuteronomy 13: 12-17a (Torah)
12 If you should hear a rumour in one of the towns which YHWH your clan god will give you to live in, saying ‘I heard certain evil men taking some
of the town out encouraging them to worship other foreign clan gods which you have not yet heard of, you shall set up an Inquiry and if the acusation
is proved true that such a ritual Toqebah (‘cultic abomination’) has in fact taken place, you will utterly genocide all the inhabitants of that
town, utterly destroying the town and its inhabitants, even down to the animals – then you will gather together all of their belongings and utterly
burn the lot in the town square – and not take any of it for yourself, and leave it a perpetual Ruin, never again to be rebuilt.
Deuteronomy 20: 10-18
This is the Rule of War for the Towns of the Goyim which YHWH your clan god shall give unto you and your sons as an Inheritance – You shall leave
nothing alive that breathes, but you shall utterly exterminate every one of them, namely Hittites, & Amorites,Canaanites, Perizzites,Hivites &
Jebusites; exactly as YHWH your clan god has commanded you, so that they will not be able to teach you all of their peculiar ritual Toq’eboth
(‘taboos’, ‘cultic abominations’) that they perform for their own clan gods, leading you into sin against YHWH your clan god.
Now remember what Amalekites (lit. ‘Amalek’) did to you when you were sojourning out of the land of Mitzrayim : how they came upon you on the road
and attacked your rear guard, including the weakest ones in your camps, and how they showed no reverence for the Elohim (‘gods’) – so it shall
come to pass that when the land you shall be given by your clan god YHWH is finally settled and becomes your Inheritance to possess, you shall utterly
genocide the Seed of Amalek (lit. ‘Remembrance’) from under the heavens – you will never ever forget this.
Outside the Torah, we have references to ‘the fulfillment of the Divine Commands to genocide’ the goyim in books like Joshua and 1 Samuel, in the
context of the (CH-R-M) Holy War ‘devoted’ marking of a particular group for racial and cultural Extermination and Genocide of the other’: -
This is the same type of ‘racial’ segregation of The Other that we saw in the last century in the Nazi death camps the religious underpinnings of
the racial genocide were not emphasised to the public (e.g. the Thule Society Tenets of Aryan Supremacy and how to deal with 'slave races' etc.)
See : Joshua 8:1-2, 8:23
Joshua 10: 31-33 (ref the extermination of Lachish)
Joshua 10:34-35 (ref the genocide of Eglon)
Joshua 10:36-37 (ref the wiping out of the Hebronites)
Joshua 10: 38-39 (ref the annhialation of Debir)
And this is only the TIP of the iceburg - pretty nasty hatred of all 'non Jews' (it gets worse in the Talmud !)
