Why are Jews hated?

Why are Jews hated by the early Romans, Europeans, the Nazis, communists, Islamic extremists, woke politicians, mainstream media, and student radicals?

1. Roman Conquest and Diaspora

Elephantine, Alexandria, and the destruction of Jerusalem

The earliest known form of Jewish hatred was in 410 B.C. when Egyptian priests destroyed the Jewish Temple at Elephantine.

In 38 A.D., anti-Jewish riots erupted in Alexandria, Egypt, because of tensions between Jews and Greeks, fueled by social, economic, and political rivalries. Greek mobs attacked Jewish neighborhoods, killing thousands and desecrating synagogues, and Roman authorities eventually restored order.

The hatred for Jews by the Romans culminated in 70 A.D., when Titus besieged and destroyed Jerusalem, resulting in the destruction of the Second Temple and dispersing Jewish communities across the Roman Empire.

The Roman conquest marked the beginning of the Jewish Diaspora, as Jews were sold into slavery or forced to flee, leading to the establishment of Jewish communities throughout Europe, Africa, and Asia Minor.

Racism and discrimination among Jews

Discrimination is present even among Jews who frown at their brothers, the Samaritans, for embracing pagan culture. Likewise, Romans derided Judaism, a monotheistic religion that prohibited Jews from recognizing Ceasar’s divinity.

Interestingly, Romans looked down on Jews primarily because they regarded themselves as a superior race. Also, the Jewish way of life contrasted with the progressive and advanced Roman lifestyle.


2. Medieval Persecution of Jews in Europe

During the Middle Ages, Jews faced frequent persecution and were often blamed for societal ills such as the Black Death. Cleanliness was part of Jewish culture and religion that evidently shielded them from the plague.

The blood libel myth accused Jews of using Christian blood for rituals as well as witchery, which led to numerous pogroms and massacres across Europe, where Christians razed Jewish homes and murdered thousands of Jews.

Jews murdered by the thousands

  • Massacre of Mainz (1096): During the First Crusade, a large number of Jews in Mainz, Germany, were killed by the Crusaders. Many chose to commit suicide rather than be destroyed by the Crusaders.
  • Massacre of Beelitz (1349): In Beelitz, Brandenburg (modern-day Germany), during the Black Death, the Jewish community was accused of causing the plague. Around 60 Jews were murdered in a pogrom.
  • St. Valentine’s Day Massacre (1349): In Strasbourg, Alsace (modern-day France), during the Black Death pandemic, Jews were blamed for spreading the plague. As a result, approximately 2,000 Jews were burned alive after being accused of poisoning wells.
  • Massacre of Toledo (1355): In Toledo, Spain, during a wave of anti-Jewish violence, a massacre took place where many Jews were killed.


3. Nazi Germany and the Holocaust

From 1933 to 1945, Nazi Germany, under Adolf Hitler, implemented policies aimed at the systematic extermination of Jews, known as the Holocaust. The persecution began with the enactment of the Nuremberg Laws in 1935, which institutionalized discrimination against Jews.

Hitler’s animosity towards Jews stemmed from personal grievances, including rejection from art schools dominated by Jewish faculty and decades of racial discrimination fueled by envy for Jewish business success and wealth.

6 Million Jews die in the holocaust

As a result, from 1941 to 1945, six million Jews, along with millions of others considered undesirable by the Nazi regime, were murdered in concentration camps such as Auschwitz, Treblinka, and Dachau.


4. Communist Antisemitism and Cold War Era

Political influence of Jews in Russia

Stalinist leadership perceived Jews as potential threats due to their perceived connections to Western powers or as representatives of bourgeois or cosmopolitan elements that threatened Soviet ideology. Fueled by paranoia and political expediency, Jews became a political threat.

State-Sponsored antisemitism in Soviet Russia

  • Slansky Trial (1952, Czechoslovakia): Targeted Jewish intellectuals and officials, falsely accusing them of Zionist and capitalist sympathies.
  • Doctors’ Plot (1953, Soviet Union): Falsely accused Jewish doctors of plotting against Soviet leaders, exploiting antisemitic sentiments amid political tensions.
  • Campaign Against “Cosmopolitanism” (1948-1953): Targeted Jewish intellectuals, artists, and professionals as ideologically unreliable or foreign agents.
  • Persecution of “Refuseniks” (1960s-1980s): Jewish citizens seeking emigration faced discrimination, harassment, and restrictions on their rights to work and travel.
  • Discrimination under Brezhnev (1964-1982): Despite some improvements, Jewish communities still experienced limited religious freedom and societal restrictions.


5. Radical Muslim sentiments and Islamic extremists

Palestinian Arabs and Palestinian Jews coexisted peacefully until the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. Muslim states attacked Israel shortly after its establishment in 1948.

The primary reason was geopolitical. Muslims rejected the UN Partition Plan, political and religious opposition to a Jewish state in historic Palestine, and a desire to assert regional influence.

The war aggressor is not Israel

  • 1948 Arab-Israeli War (War of Independence): Arab states rejected the UN Partition Plan and attacked Israel to prevent the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine.
  • 1956 Suez Crisis (Sinai War): Egypt, with support from Jordan and Syria, attacked Israel after nationalizing the Suez Canal, aiming to weaken Israeli influence.
  • 1967 Six-Day War: Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Iraq launched a preemptive strike against Israel to eliminate what they perceived as a growing threat.
  • 1973 Yom Kippur War (October War): Egypt and Syria attacked Israel to reclaim territories lost in previous wars and challenge Israel’s regional dominance.
  • 1982 Lebanon War: Israel entered Lebanon to expel Palestinian militants, leading to conflict with Syrian forces and Lebanese militias.
  • 2006 Lebanon War (Second Lebanon War): Hezbollah, supported by Syria and Iran, initiated conflict with Israel, aiming to weaken Israeli military presence in Lebanon.
  • 2008-2009 Gaza War (Operation Cast Lead): Israel launched a military operation in Gaza to stop rocket attacks by Hamas and other militant groups.
  • 2012 Gaza-Israel Conflict (Operation Pillar of Defense): Israel responded to increased rocket attacks from Gaza by launching airstrikes against Hamas targets.
  • 2014 Gaza-Israel Conflict (Operation Protective Edge): Israel and Hamas engaged in intense conflict, with Israel aiming to halt rocket fire and destroy tunnels used for attacks.
  • 2021 Gaza-Israel Conflict: Renewed clashes between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, sparked by tensions over Jerusalem and escalated rocket attacks.
  • 2022 Gaza-Israel Conflict: Further clashes between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, marked by rocket attacks and Israeli airstrikes.


6. Woke politicians and Media Bias

The “Squad,” a group of progressive Democratic politicians in the United States, has been vocal in their criticisms of Israel. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have openly criticized Israel, supported movements like BDS, and condemned Israel’s actions in Gaza in a one-sided argument.

One-sided argument

Media bias is also evident. Outlets like CNN, MSNBC, and others have been accused of biased reporting on Israel. For instance, during the 2021 conflict in Gaza, some coverage on these networks allegedly emphasized Palestinian casualties while downplaying Hamas rocket attacks on Israeli civilians.

Perhaps they were inspired by the recent woke movement that turns offenders into victims, such as framing abortion as healthcare with no fetal rights, denying parents the right to refuse gender reassignment for minors, and allowing Drag Queens to read gay books in libraries while restricting Bible readings.

In other words, the conservative culture, rooted in Christian morals, has turned upside down, including revising history that makes Cleopatra and Ann Boylen black people, which empowers victimhood.


7. Islamic extremists call for Israel’s annihilation

Extremist groups and leaders, such as Hamas, Hezbollah, and Iranian officials, openly advocate for the destruction of Israel and propagate antisemitic ideologies.

Extremists, in their own words

  • 1948: Hamas Preamble states, “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.”
  • 1948: Hamas Charter, Article 13 states, “There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad.
  • 2020: Ismail Haniyeh said, “We will not recognize Israel; Palestine must stretch from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea.”
  • 2023: Hamad Al-Regeb prayed for the “annihilation” and “paralysis” of the Jews, whom he described as filthy animals.
  • 2023: Ghazi Hamad vowed to repeat the October 7 attacks “time and again until Israel is annihilated.”

8. Antisemitism in universities

Israel’s response to Hamas’ aggression has ignited the height of antisemitism. Non-Muslim communities, American educators, and students joined anti-Israel protests, chanting freedom for Palestine and calling Israel’s response to Gaza a genocide. Yet they ignore Palestinian atrocities against Israel and what it has to do in order to protect its borders.

According to psychiatrist Jordan Peterson, the growing antisemitism in universities should be blamed on idiotic Marxism. Presidents of Harvard, MIT, and UPenn turn a blind eye to calls for genocide against Jews while claiming the moral high ground.

Professors and students condemn Israel

  • Nearly 700 Jewish professors call on Biden not to sign controversial antisemitism legislation. [The Hill]
  • Student protests in universities condemned Israel and endangered Jews on campus. “Antisemitic mobs have taken over leading universities.” [Netanyahu]
  • Since 1948, Hamas, Hezbollah, and Iranian Arab officials and Islamic radicals have publicly called for Israel’s eradication in the Middle East.
  • Children are indoctrinated with antisemitism and false historical narratives.
