    Antisemitism (also spelled anti-semitism or anti-Semitism) is suspicion of, hatred toward, or discrimination against Jews for reasons connected to their Jewish heritage. According to a 2005 U.S. governmental report, antisemitism is "hatred toward Jews—individually and as a group—that can be attributed to the Jewish religion and/or ethnicity."[1] A person who holds such views is called an "antisemite". Antisemitism may be manifested in many ways, ranging from expressions of hatred of or discrimination against individual Jews to organized violent attacks by mobs, or even state police, or military attacks on entire Jewish communities. Extreme instances of persecution include the pogroms which preceded the First Crusade in 1096, the expulsion from England in 1290, the massacres of Spanish Jews in 1391, the persecutions of the Spanish Inquisition, the expulsion from Spain in 1492, the expulsion from Portugal in 1497, various Russian


    They were kicked out of Russia too.

    Mycatsmum yes that's correct Hun xxxxxx

    I don't hate Jewish people and I don't know anybody who does, I know a lot of people.......

    Some people "hate" indiscriminately, by ethnicity, faith, race, profession, etc.  Those indiscriminate, stereotyping haters are ignorant. 
    That makes my answer to your question, IGNORANCE.


    why did you TU him/her?

    Hello, Yvonne57. If I answer a question, I give it a TU. I don't think this person says he/she hates Jewish people; it seems to be a genuine question.

    You're right, they didn't say "they" hated Jews. r/yvonne57

    Hitler hated the Jews and based his hate on the witings of Frierich Nietzche, but he probably never read them. Nietzche was very positive towards the Jews, but was against religion stating ' faith means not wanting to know what is true' . Jews were persecuted in Pogroms for centuries and were blamed for many things such as outbreaks of disease and natural disasters.

    In any case, JC was born a Jew, lived a Jew, and died a Jew.

    Are you from Iran?


    that's a funny answer Ann.

    well it's an understandable question, b/c in some countries in the middle east, they're taught to hate the U.S. and Israel

    I don't hate Jews.I don't like people who don't like Jews tho!

    Because of stupidity.


    The orthodox Jewish people -one has to remember, they do not have much contact with the media in as much as they do not read all those trashy magazine, newspapers and watch television. I used to sneak in a few magazines to an orthodox Jewish Lady because she asked me to - cannot seen to be buying but often looking in the stores. Why I do not even read this trash myself.

    Since when are Jews " hated " ?   I thougth W W  II   was over a long time ago.


    They are still hated by some people. Do you live here on earth?

    you could say the same thing to jh's first statement on here.

    Not 2 years later. Seems that was her second answer here. I commented to her first one which did not get as many vote ups. I think my answer to her other answer about covers it.

    everyone hates someone or something MCM<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

    Never Hate .A very hurtful word .They keep themselves to there own kind and are nice .I worked as a newsagent  paper boy .The old couple always very kind .Many a time had meals with them they asked my Mum first .yes mum said one less for me to feed and laughed with them.When I grew up met a few Jewish people all nice. never did see "Hate in there "eyes.    

    Who said the Jews are hate? news to me!  What nationality are you? if I may ask.


    Seriously? You do not know that the Jews are hated by al Qua'eda ?

    maybe he/ she was refering to people in America.

    Maybe but facebook could have answered and said that 2 years ago. I have better things to do in life than rehash two year old answers.

    I don't think Jewish people are hated - resented maybe as they are so prominent all over the world and do have their own culture which often segregates others but for the Orhtodox this is a requirement.


    al Qua'eda hates them.

    I took the question as being general and not specific.

    thumbs up,Poppy

    Saw a programme recently or rather an interview Phillip Roth - American Jew previously from Europe - remember perhaps "Portnoy's Complaint" - big outcry about this at the time Oh my what an interesting guy and has written 30 - 35 books since then. He speaks of religion with regard to likes and dislikes points out that nobody must feel complacent in this regard. He is now 80 years old and has finally given up writing.

     Not by me , maybe cause they were in part for putting the savior to death..


    Landers: Jewish contributions to the world are innumerable

    Dear Ann Landers:With many people blaming Israel and Jews for the world's problems, I think this might be an appropriate time to run that great column you printed years ago about Jewish contributions to the world.-- Peggy in North Carolina

    Dear Peggy: This column originally appeared in July 1981. It was sent to me by Father Theodore Hesburgh, former president of the University of Notre Dame, and written by Sam Levinson. Here is an updated version. The new research was done by David Gaus, a former student at Tulane University Medical School in New Orleans:

    An Answer to an Anti-Semite

    It's a free world. You don't have to like Jews if you don't want to, but if you are going to be an anti-Semite, you should be consistent and turn your back on the medical advances that Jews have made possible.

    I am talking about the vaccine for hepatitis discovered by Baruch Blumberg, the Wasserman test for syphilis developed by August Von Wasserman, and the first effective drug to fight syphilis developed by Paul Ehrlich. Bela Schick developed the diagnostic skin test for diphtheria. Insulin would not have been discovered if Oskar Minkowski had not demonstrated the link between diabetes and the pancreas.

    It was Burrill Crohn who identified the disease that bears his name. Alfred Hess discovered that vitamin C could cure scurvy. Casimir Funk was the first to use vitamin B to treat beriberi. Jonas Salk developed the first polio vaccine. Later, Albert Sabin developed the oral version.

    It's not to (sic) long,it's not long enough.I'm not crowing about it.Also, there are treatments for Attention Deficit Disorder. There are a billion Moslems in the world.Don't you think a lot of them are anti-Semitic? Israel is surrounded by countries, that if they could, would destroy it in a minute. Then, you have idiots who have never even met a Jew, yet hate them all. I would like for one of these #$%s to tell me why.

    Hate. It should be on the list of other four letter words. Hate. It promotes a warfare like attitude. A word that was understood of as an extreme thought or feeling, has unfortunely become a word that is thrown around at random nowadays. A word that hurts someone down to the very soul. A word that should not be used lightly or possibly never at all. If we could take that word out of the equation and have a more enlightened conversation about differences, then an understanding of how ALL religions are connected would benefit mankind.

    Why do you hate Jewish people...............?


    I don't see that in the question? Perhaps the akser is Jewish and wants to know why he/she is hated.

    In certain cultures lets say Arab, just off the top of my head, it has been going on since the time of Abraham. Most of them don't like one another probably because of the disputes over ownership of the land in Israel.

    I have always had good Jewish friends and I have asked this question to many.  I never really got a good answer and I still am looking for a good answer.  My mother gave me the Biblical view.  I hope we get some good answers on this site.  Maybe it innate just to be against somebody, particularly if they don't have everything you have at the moment.  I like this question.

       The hatred is misdirected. On Moslem-Jewish issues, the world's sentiment seems to loathe the Jews and feel sympathy for Moslems.  If any religion is do be hated because of its adherents it's Islam, but only because of the minority who are intolerant and foment hate and destruction.

    Here is an interesting viewpoint. The following is a copy of an article written by Spanish writer Sebastian Vilar Rodriguez and published in a Spanish newspaper on Jan. 15, 2011. It doesn't take much imagination to extrapolate the message to the rest of Europe - and possibly to the rest of the world.

    "I walked down the street in Barcelona and suddenly discovered a terrible truth - Europe died in Auschwitz ... We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.

    The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned.

    And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.

    They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime. Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.

    And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition. We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs.

    What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe.

    A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves.
    Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it 'offends' the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving in to it.

    It is now more than sixty years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the six million Jews, twenty million Russians, ten million Christians, and nineteen-hundred Catholic priests who were 'murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated.' Now, more than ever, with Iran , among others, claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

    How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center 'NEVER HAPPENED' because it offends some Muslim in the United States ? If our Judeo-Christian heritage is offensive to Muslims, they should pack up and move to Iran , Iraq or some other Muslim country?"
