The Jews had been rejected and persecuted by every human race and by every other religion.
Christianity had rejected the Jews since its very beginning and had called them wicked murderers. Even the compassionate, loving, forgiving Jesus Christ had called them hypocrites, murderers of prophets, serpents and vipers (Mathew 23:33), “children of the devil” (John 8:44) and he prophesized: "you will be hated by all nations for my name's sake" (Mathew 24:9).
Early Christian Popes had followed Christ’s example and condemned the Jews and ordered their "wicked" Talmud be burned. Pope Gregory IX condemned the Talmud as containing "Every kind of vileness and blasphemy against Christian doctrine." Pope Benedict XIII declared the Jews as "The heresies, vanities and errors of the Talmud prevent the Jews from knowing the truth." Pope Innocent IV burned the Talmud in 1233 as a book of evil while Pope John XXII banned the Talmud in 1322 while. Likewise Pope Julius III ordered in 1554 the Talmud burnt everywhere. Pope Pius IV and Pope Clement VIII condemned Talmud's genocidal writings. Pope Gregory XIII declared that Jews are "moved by an intense hatred of the members of Christ, they continue to plan horrible crimes against the Christian religion with daily increasing audacity", while Pope Paul IV had powerfully condemned Jewish usury and anti-Christian activities.
Although Islam accepts and honors all the "People of the Book" (Jews and Christians), and acknowledges and reveres the whole line of prophets starting from Adam all the way down to Ibrahim (Abraham), Moses, Issa (Jesus) and Mohammad, and although the Moslem countries had been the most tolerant and accepting the Jewish communities among them giving them freedom and all civil rights up to 1948, Moslem clerics had always warned of Jewish trickery, Jewish unfair dealings, Jewish treachery, and had always considered them the worst kind of enemies especially after Jewish occupation of Palestine.
It strikes one very odd to discover that anti-Jewish sentiments, rejections, warnings, expulsions and even murder are so rampant in every nation and in every country and is so prominent in the writings and teachings of many international well-renowned and respected intellectuals, scholars, philosophers, historians and artists such as American journalist Henry Louis Mencken (known as the sage of Baltimore), American historian Henry Brooks Adams, American novelist Theodore Dreiser, American publisher, playwright and social critic Thomas Eliot, Irish writer George Bernard Shaw, English writer Herbert George Wells, English poet and playwright William Shakespeare, French artist and sculptor Edgar Degas, French philosopher Denis Diderot, German philosopher Immanuel Kant, German theatre director and opera composer and conductor Richard Wagner, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford , Russian poet Alexander Pushkin, Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Solzhenitsyn and many other Russian writers just to mention few. All this anti-Jewish hatred could be epitomized in Shakespeare’s tale "The Merchant of Venice."
To protect themselves against this hatred and avoid persecutions some Jews pretend to convert to Christianity or to Islam yet they kept their Jewish religion/ideology and practices hidden from the people they were living among.
These fake converted Jews were known as Crypto-Jews, Converso-Jews, Marrano-Jews, and Donmeh-Jews. When circumstances allow it these Crypto-Jews reclaim their Jewishness as Madeleine Albright and John Kerry (Kuhn) had done.
The rich and influential Jewish elite and religious leaders resorted to different self-defense mechanisms. To maintain their culture, their religion, their cohesiveness, and mainly their control over lesser Jews they isolated themselves into ghettos and created their own ruling leadership called the Kahal. They taught their new generations to fear non-Jews (goyims) because they have non-rational hatred against the Jews and may exhibit sudden spouts of irrational aggression against all Jews.
This convoluted ideology is expressed prominently by the Zionist fanatic Jew Alan Dershowitz, who wrote in his book "Chutzpah" that anti-Semitic/anti-Jewish bigotry runs in people of every race, religion, geographic area, political leaning, gender and age. He explains that this anti-Jewishness "... lies more in the realm of abnormal psychology than in any rational attempts to find understandable cause in history ... Anti-Semitism is a disease of the soul."
The Zionist Jewish elite brainwashed the rest of the Jews that as long as they live in the so-called Diaspora they would always be persecuted. They came up with the Zionist ideology that as long as god’s chosen people (the Jews) are not living in god's promised land (Palestine) in a pure Jewish state they would suffer hatred and persecution. To be safe the Jews have to fight every other nation so that they can allegedly return to their promised land.
After reading Mark Twain's sentence that "Every nation hates each other, but they all hate the Jews", a ten-year old child asked the most logical question: "What did the Jews do to be hated by the entire world?"
To fully answer this question one could write large volumes to cover the Jewish religious, ideological, political, behavioral reasons that had created such deep rooted three-thousand years old anti-Jewish sentiment. Yet I will provide three statements by three Jewish figures that will summarize all the reasons for this
The Zionist Communist Jewish leader Baruch Levy wrote a letter to Karl Marx, 'La Revue de Paris', dated June 1st, 1928 part of which he stated the following:
"The Jewish people as a whole will become its own Messiah. It will attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, by the annihilation of monarchy, and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship... In this New World Order the children of Israel will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which is said that when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands."
Jewish Theodor Herzl, considered by many to be the founder of Zionism, explained anti-Semitic/anti-Jewish sentiments in his 1897 statement as the following:
"It is essential that the sufferings of Jews become worse … this will assist in realization of our plans ... I have an excellent idea … I shall induce anti-Semites to liquidate Jewish wealth ... The anti-Semites will assist us thereby in that they will strengthen the persecution and oppression of Jews. The anti-Semites shall be our best friends."
Jewish Menachem Begin, the Israeli Prime Minister between 1977 to 1983, had clearly expressed the religiously deep rooted psychological grandeur complex imprinted and brainwashed in the psyche of Jewish new generation when he stated the following:
"Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leaders with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves."
As evident and can easily be seen Judaism, which is totally different and alien than the authentic Abrahamic teachings, is a supremacist, racist, segregationist, apartheid, genocidal, terrorist ideology, that had been rejected by Jesus Christ, all Christian popes, all Muslim clerics, international intellectuals, philosophers, social thinkers, businessmen, and even the simple man of the street.
It can be easily seen that their own so-called religious texts; including the Talmud and the Old Testament, that had been imposed on Christianity as a pre-Christian text, are full of supremacist and genocidal commands.
The core ideology of Judaism is the supremacist notion that the Jews are god’s chosen people, with divine souls unlike non-Jews, who are considered refuse animals souls born in human body only to serve the Jews. This supremacist ideology is still being taught to every Jewish child in every synagogue and in every Jewish yeshiva (school). Deuteronomy 7:6 states:
"for thou art a holy people unto the lord thy god: the lord thy god has chosen thee to a special people unto himself, above all people that are on the face of the earth."
The Talmud states in Baba Mezia 114a-114b "only Jews are human. Gentiles are animals. Gentiles' flesh is as the flesh of asses and whose issue is like the issue of horses."
In Yebamoth 98a it states:
"All gentile children are animals." Abodah Zarah 22a-22b states: "Gentiles prefer sex with cows." Baba Kamma 37b states: “Gentiles are outside the protection of the law and god has exposed their money to Israel.” In the Babylonian Talmud it states: “Even the best of the Gentiles should be killed.” Deuteronomy 20:16 reiterates the gentile killing: "But in the cities of these peoples that the lord your god gives you for an inheritance, you shall save alive nothing that breathes."
This genocidal commandment had been followed to the letter by the Jews: Joshua 6:21 "and they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword."
Joshua 10:37 also states: "and they took Hebron, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and the king thereof, and all the cities thereof, and the souls that were therein; he left none remaining."
The teaching of Jewish supremacy and the calling for genocides of goyim are still uttered in present day by Jewish rabbis and Jewish politicians in the terrorist state of Israel.
Jewish history shows us that the Jews had adopted genocide of all goyims as their operational mode to destroy all none Jews. The Old Testament documented the Jewish massacres of Canaanites, Jacobites, Jezobites, Philistines, Egyptians, Persians, and many other nations. Modern history reports that the Jews were behind almost all wars and political upheavals misguidingly called revolutions; e.g. French revolution, Russian revolutions and Arab Revolt.
They were behind the Armenian genocide, the Ukrainian Holodomor, the genocide of almost 100 million Christian Russians, the genocide of another 100 million African slaves, the American Civil War, WWI and WWII, the 911 terrorist attacks and all the current wars in the Middle East misguidedly called Arab Spring.
Believing themselves supreme the Jews had rejected all attempts of civil integration within their host countries, who granted them rights of citizenship, freedom of worship, and growth opportunities. They repeated betrayed their host countries, spied on them and conspired with their enemies to topple their governments.
The Jews had taken advantage of the growth opportunities granted by their good Christian and Moslem host countries to infiltrate into governmental departments, financial institutions, education institutions, business corporations, media resources, and into all vital social organizations, and then they squeezed out the non-Jews and replaced them with their brethren Jews. They buy officials and politicians in order to manipulate its foreign policies and lead nations into war against each other, while their rich Jewish elite finance and arm both sides reaping profits from the destruction of others.
In summery and in short, this anti-goyim, supremacist, racist, genocidal Judaic ideology had developed and imprinted a severe case of paranoid complex deep in the collective psyche of Jews, whose anti-goyim hate, treachery, unethical and immoral dealings produced a reactionary collective international anti-Jewish sentiment.
Sorry Mr. Dershowitz it is the anti-goyimism in the Jewish collective psyche, not the anti-Semitism, that is the disease of the soul.
