The seven stages of antisemitism

The seven stages of antisemitism

1. Romans annihilate Jews in 70 A.D.

In 70 A.D., the pagan Romans destroyed the ancient Jewish State known as the Siege of Jerusalem. Approximately one million Jews were killed. Some survivors were sold into slavery, and a small remnant remained in Jerusalem. The rest relocated and prospered in Europe.

In 590 A.D., the Roman Catholic Empire was established and superseded Judaism. However, the Jews’ refusal to accept Jesus as the Messiah was seen as a threat to the Roman rulers and Christianity. Hence, anti-Jew sentiment began to brew. [ADL]

TIMELINE OF ISRAEL’S HISTORY.

Hadrian’s wrath: Israel renamed Palestina to spite the Jews

Seventy years after the siege, Roman Emperor Hadrian established a new (pagan) city, Aelia Capitalina, on the ruins of Jerusalem. It led to the Bar Kohba revolt.

To punish the Jews, Hadrian issued a decree that banished the Jewish race and forbade the Torah’s reading. He sold Jewish prisoners into slavery, and the Jews were never to return or look at Jerusalem from a distance. [Harris] [Britanica]

Hadrian renamed Judea (Judeae, Land of Israel) into Syria Palestina to wipe out the remaining Jewish identity in the Roman province. He chose Palestina to spite the Jews. The Philistines were the hereditary enemy of the Israelites.

The land of Judeae was part of the region known as Canaan, where the Kingdoms of a united Israel (Ancient Israel and Judah) were located.

1 Million Jews were murdered in 70 A.D.

2. Jewish hatred in the Middle Ages

A new pattern of institutionalized discrimination began in Europe during the Middle Ages. Jews were envied but were also ill-reputed for how they did business.

They appeared snooty, not necessarily because they were prideful but because they lived exclusively. After all, they were “God’s chosen people.” Envy, prejudice, and racism were apparent factors for their antipathy.

Black Death: The Jewish Massacre in the Middle Ages

The pivotal hatred for the Jews was during the Black Death. An estimated 25 million people were killed, but Jews were somewhat immune from contracting the Marburg virus (an ebola-like virus). Consequently, they were accused of poisoning the water wells to infect their non-Jewish neighbors.

Jews were the perfect suspects

Desperate, non-Jewish people, such as Christians, blamed witches and the Jews for causing death. The brewing hatred exploded into a series of massacres in Toulon, Erfurt, Basel, Aragon, Frankfurt, and Main. They have nearly obliterated them in Europe.

Religious rituals prevent lethal exposure to viruses

Jews isolated themselves (ghettos). Judaism places great importance on toilet habits, as demonstrated in the Torah and later Talmudic literature. Rituals such as washing their hands three times daily (Netilat Yadayim) prevented viruses from spreading within their community.

The Jews didn’t eat pork or crustaceans. They fasted regularly and sincerely regarded spiritual and physical purity. In short, hygiene and diet became their immune defense.

THE TRUE DEFINITION OF ANTISEMITISM.

The Black Plague occurred between 1346 – 1353. About 2,000 Jews were burnt alive in the “Valentine massacre” in 1349 by Christians, excluding thousands of deaths in other cities and villages. Beautiful women and children who converted to Christianity were spared, while Jewish wealth and properties were looted.

3. Nazi antisemitism

Successive phases of antisemitism

Antisemitism was not isolated in Nazi Germany. It was also in Russia, Paris, Italy, and bits and pockets of Europe. But in Germany, Hitler embodied hatred against God’s people.

The compound word ‘antisemitism’ (Judenhass) means ‘Jew-hatred.’ It was first used (in print) in Germany in 1879. Europe underwent a rapid economic change, and the emancipation of the Jews allowed them to prosper.

Jews started to get rich. They owned lands and entered the civil service. They did so well that Jews began displacing non-Jews in professions—traditionally reserved for Christians. In short, envy was widespread envy because Jews did so well. [USHMM]

Hitler’s hatred of Jews

Before Hitler became a great Nazi leader, he was an artist. His application was rejected twice at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, which the Jews dominated. When Germany lost in WWI, Hitler blamed the Jews for hyperinflation because they dominated the financial institutions.

The Nuremberg “Racist” Laws

Then came the Nuremberg Race Laws in 1935 that aimed for the “Protection of German Blood and German Honor.” The Nazis believed that the German (Aryan) race was superior to non-Aryans.

The document was posted publicly to educate the people on what it meant to be Jewish. Their German citizenship was revoked, including the mischlinge (non-Aryans or half-Jews). They were also forced to wear the yellow Star of David to identify and quickly exclude them from German society.

Intimate relationships between Jews and Germans were taboo. For example, Julius Wolff and his German fiancé Christine Neumann were humiliated in Norden. They carried the signs: ‘Ich bin ein Rassenschänder‘ (I defile the race) and “I am a German girl, and I allowed a Jew to defile me.

Hollywood’s Pact with Hitler

Author Ben Urwand’s book, The Collaboration: Hollywood’s Pact with Hitler, exposes the problematic relationship between Hollywood executives and the German propaganda ministry in the 1930s. Studios agreed to refrain from making films that criticized the Nazis.

Urwand believes studio heads willingly assisted them because the Nazis may prohibit American films and put anti-American content in German cinema.

Goebbel’s Propaganda

The movie “The Eternal Jews” was an antisemitic propaganda film in 1940, presented as a documentary. In 1937, the Propaganda Ministry put on an art exhibition in Munich titled Der ewige Jude, followed by the book comprising 265 photographs, each with a derogatory caption asserting the degeneration of the Jewish race.

German race was superior to non-Aryans.

Jewish Holocaust

From 1939 to May 1945, the Nazis murdered six million Jews during World War 2. Adolf Hitler blamed the Bolsheviks, socialists, and Jews (social democrats) for Germany’s loss in WWI. With growing hatred, Hitler pushed for “ethnic cleansing,” the Final Solution that led to the genocide.

Towards the late 19th century, Jews excelled in banking and finance. They were also into trade, advanced medicine, law, art, literature, and films. Still, antisemitism was persistent.

Schindler’s List: Movie adaption depicting how the modern Israelites were despised, hated, and murdered. Oskar Schindler saved 1,200 Jews. He was a businessman and a member of the Nazi Party.

6 Million Jews were murdered in WW2.

4. The United Nations and Russia

Zionist conspiracy

The Cold War began in 1947, and a purge in Moscow spread throughout the capitals of Eastern Europe. Of Budapest, Prague, and East Berlin, which accused the Jews and Zionists of sabotaging the Communist States (USSR).

The conspiracy culminated in the Slansky trial in 1952 in Prague and the Merker case in East Berlin (GDR) in the mid-1950s. The Jews were then accused of being part of an international conspiracy that included the United States and unnamed Zionists.

Even the recent COVID pandemic and the 9/11 terrorist attack are blamed on Jews, even if evidence suggests China and Al Queda terrorists were to blame.

Russia’s role in end-times prophecy

Even though the Soviet Union supported the creation of Israel in 1948, it quickly turned against it because of an antisemitic campaign during Stalin’s final years. It contributed to a great deal of tension between the two countries.

After Stalin died in 1953, his successors began reassessing Soviet foreign policy. One of the thrusts was to develop close relations with certain Arab countries, including Egypt and Syria.

These Arab nations are known enemies of Israel: They want to eradicate them from the map. One can only conclude what the future holds as Russia maintains its growing rapport with the Arabs while the United States remains an Israel ally.

United Nations support for Palestinians

In November 1975, the United Nations voted to single out Jewish nationhood as the only crime among all forms of nationalism. They established a committee on the “Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People” or CEIRPP

U.N. pans Arab propaganda supported by mainstream media.

  • General Assembly condemning Israeli actions disproportionately.
  • UN resolutions on “Nakba Day” as an official observance.
  • The UN criticizes Israeli policies while neglecting other regional human rights violations.

5. Antisemitism after Hitler

Today, Jews are seen as “land grabbers.” The war victories that allowed them to reclaim adjacent lands were considered Israeli aggression.

Consistently, far-left liberal politicians disregard the Hebrew Bible as a historical document. They were blindsided by prejudice, many discount archeological evidence that supports Israel’s right to reclaim their land.

The word “antisemitic” surfaced in Germany in 1879 instead of saying Judenhass or “Jew-hatred.” Rooted in envy, prejudice, and racism, hatred for God’s chosen people continues.

Nakba Day

In 1998, Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat declared May 15 as Nakba Day or “Disaster Day.” It’s meant to commemorate the displacement of hundreds of thousands of persons as a result of establishing a Jewish state in 1948, granted by the League of Nations.

In 2022, the United Nations adopted the resolution commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Nakba next year—that perpetuates hatred against the Jewish people.

WHERE IS THE ARK OF COVENANT TODAY?

Four known left Democrat politicians in the U.S. who President Trump called “anti-Israel” and “antisemitic.” Hatred for the Jews has always been a grand scheme of Satan. Today, the U.S. Democratic Party is on it while Iran and its Islamic pundits strive to execute in futility and ignoble countries on the United Nations platforms.

6. Double Standard: Israel against the world

On October 7, 2023, the Palestinian Sunni Islamist group Hamas (a U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organization) led surprise attacks against Israel from the Gaza Strip by land, sea, and air. [CRS]

They kidnapped families, raped women, and killed babies. Israel retaliated with full force. It’s been almost 20 years that Hamas has been firing missiles and sending orchestrated suicide bombers to Israel. [HRW]

The IDF repeatedly told Palestinians living in Gaza to evacuate, but Hamas encouraged its citizens to remain and “die for Allah.” However, it was Israel who faced the outrage, not the Palestinian terrorists.

Hence, Muslim terrorists and their Western supporters accused Israel of genocide when the fact is that Israel’s approach to the war had the least aggression as compared to other wars.

War is War, and Israel has to respond

The United States was forced to join WW2 after Japan killed about 2,403 Americans in Pearl Harbor. They retaliated with two atomic bombs that killed about 300,000 Japanese. The Nazis killed about 6 million Jews, and about 4 million Germans died after the Allied Forces retaliated.

In the 1990 Gulf War, Iraq annexed Kuwait, prompting U.S. intervention in the name of democracy. About 1,000 Kuwaiti civilians perished, while Iraqi casualties are estimated to be around 100,000.

We have seen the same pattern in Muslim-against-Muslim wars through decades, but the West barely protested. The double standard is clear and demonic. Satan seeks to kill, steal, and destroy God’s chosen and make a mockery out of it.

7. Calls to annihilate Jews

Palestinian Jews and Palestinian Arabs coexisted peacefully until the first day that the state of Israel was formally established as a nation. Since 1948, several Islamist leaders, along with their millions of followers, have called for the annihilation of Israel:

Islamic leaders: “In their own words”

Islamic leaders and clerics have openly called for the eradication of Israel, often using the phrase “From the river to the sea,” which is a vision of a Palestine without Israel, along with numerous speeches, sermons, and official declarations, highlighting a consistent stance against Israel’s existence in the Middle East.

  1. Hassan al-Banna (Founder of the Muslim Brotherhood)
    • 1948: Al-Banna expressed opposition to the creation of Israel and called for its destruction.
  2. Sayyid Qutb (Prominent Islamist Theorist)
    • 1960s: Qutb advocated for the liberation of Palestine from Israeli control and supported armed resistance against Israel.
  3. Yasser Arafat (Former Chairman of the PLO)
    • 1960s-2000s: Arafat’s rhetoric often included calls for the liberation of Palestine, though his stance evolved over time to support a two-state solution.
  4. Hassan Nasrallah (Hezbollah Secretary-General)
    • 2000: Nasrallah declared, “Israel is a cancerous tumor that must be eradicated.”
  5. Khaled Mashal (Former Hamas Leader)
    • 2012: Mashal stated, “We will never recognize the legitimacy of the Israeli occupation. Therefore, there is no legitimacy for Israel.”
  6. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei (Iran’s Supreme Leader)
    • 2015: Khamenei tweeted, “There will be no Israel in 25 years.”
  7. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (Former President of Iran)
    • 2005: Ahmadinejad declared, “Israel must be wiped off the map.”
  8. Yahya Sinwar (Hamas Leader in Gaza)
    • 2018: Sinwar stated, “We will break the walls of the blockade, remove the occupation entity, and return to all of Palestine.”
  9. Ismail Haniyeh (Hamas Political Leader)
    • 2020: Haniyeh declared, “We will liberate Jerusalem and all of Palestine from the river to the sea.”

Extremist context of “Inshallah” and “River to the Sea”

“Inshallah” (إن شاء الله) means “God willing” and is used to express hope for a future event as well as “Inshallah bikhair” (إن شاء الله بخير), which expresses hope for positive outcomes.

The majority of Arabs or Muslims do not use “Inshallah” in a hateful manner. However, the “positive outcome” can refer to many things, including the extremist context of wishing for the eradication of Israel from the map.

In Western phrases, this is the “River to the Sea, Palestine will be free” chant that means the same thing.

“Khaybar, Khaybar…”

Known as the Battle of Khaybar (628 B.C.), Muslims fought against Jewish tribes in the Khaybar oasis (present-day Saudi Arabia). Today, extremists have distorted its historical significance to fuel anti-Semitic sentiments.

Thus, the expression “Khaybar, Khaybar, ya Yahud, jays Muhammad saw you’d,” which translates to “Khaybar, Khaybar, O Jews, the army of Muhammad will return,” clearly references the Battle of Khaybar, is sometimes used by extremists to express hostility towards Jews.
