    Why are Jews so hated?

    MULTIPLE CHOICE - PUBLIC POLL

    Jews have not engaged in an invasive war since the 9th century BC. Unlike Christians, Muslims and nearly every ethnicity, race and country, other than the initial formation of Israel 2900 years ago, Jews have never sought to create an empire by war or in any other manner.

    For nearly 2000 years, Jews have fled from one region and country to another from oppression and systematic murder. The killing of Jews merely for being Jewish has never stopped. It would appear no ethnicity/race has been more hated for as long and as universally across the world as the Jews.

    Why? Why are the Jews so hated everywhere leading to countless incidents of organized violence, murder, imprisonment, and other genocidal natured oppression?

    They consistently do quite well for themselves across basically all fields except athletics and politics (more after antiquity, I think, but still). A group of folks doing that well has to be up to something, right?

    At least that's the thinking of jealous, hateful minds. Money makes the world go round.

    Personally, I like Jews, I respect the hustle.

    I'm sure there's more, but that's the one I suspect to be a pivotal factor. I'm no expert on antisemitism though, so take it with a grain of salt.

    Because ignorant morons like you keep making up falsehoods about Jews in order to fit your own religious or historical narrative.

    Terrible poll. Every single option is victim-blaming, pure and simple. Every single one. Where are the options that put the onus where it belongs, and that is on past and present-day antisemites?

    I believe it's because they're "shifty".
    “Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    That's the easiest answer in the world. Because both the Bible and the Quaran say so:

    For Christianity, it's Matthew and John that are the culprit. The Jews are the enemies that are guilty of killing Jesus Christ. Matthew 27:24-25 -

    When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. “I am innocent of this man’s blood,” he said. “It is your responsibility!” All the people [the Jews] answered, “His blood is on us and on our children!”
    Meaning that on a broader level, it's that the Jews are too [dumb, ignorant, conceited, evil] to be able to read their own Holy Books and recognize that Jesus is the Messiah!

    For Islam, it began with Muhammad. Both the Jews and the Muslims trace their lineage to to the literary figures Isaac and Ishmael. The Quran instructs Muslims to both treat Jews as brothers and as enemies. But the hatred? Surat Al-Mā'idah 5:12-13 and 5:70-

    And Allah had already taken a covenant from the Children of Israel, and We delegated from among them twelve leaders. And Allah said, "I am with you. If you establish prayer and give zakah and believe in My messengers and support them and loan Allah a goodly loan, I will surely remove from you your misdeeds and admit you to gardens beneath which rivers flow. But whoever of you disbelieves after that has certainly strayed from the soundness of the way." So for their breaking of the covenant We cursed them and made their hearts hard. They distort words from their [proper] usages and have forgotten a portion of that of which they were reminded. And you will still observe deceit among them, except a few of them. But pardon them and overlook [their misdeeds]. Indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.

    We had already taken the covenant of the Children of Israel and had sent to them messengers. Whenever there came to them a messenger with what their souls did not desire, a party [of messengers] they denied, and another party they killed.
    Meaning that on a broader level, it's that the Jews are too [dumb, ignorant, conceited, evil] to be able to understand their own history are realize that Muhammad is the Prophet!

    Because of our intrinsic evil.

    Re: Why are Jews so hated?

    The industry nature - the drive - of Jews when FINALLY fixated on defensive is truly the David - Goliath battle - where David had prepared far more than any thought possible. In the Jew's war for independence they were attacked by half a dozen heavily armed professional armies of many surrounding countries plus scores of Muslim volunteers from other countries. In retrospective analysis, had those attacking forces kept up the attack they would have prevailed.

    But the Jews - men and women - fought so intensely and so psychologically wise - making themselves seem far more potent than they were - the Jews scared the hell out of the attacking soldiers. For example, they made a few MASSIVE mortars that couldn't hit anything targeted - but instead were designed to make a tremendously loud explosion. They flew the few aircraft they had in ways to make it seem that those few aircraft seemed like hundreds. And used the 3 WW2 surplus bombers they had smuggled in seem like a squadron bombing Cairo itself.

    By portraying themselves prior to the attack as armed only with handguns and rifles - and then making it falsely appear like they had a huge air force, huge tank force, and massive artillery, the attackers were so startled they retreated and agreed to a cease fire. Incredibly, although it seemed like total war, the total casualties on all sides was only around 25,000 including all civilians killed.

    Smoke and mirrors. And it worked. Brilliant. I admire that creativity and determination against all the odds.

    Unless that is satire, it would be good to remember you in light of that last sentence.
